Halftime: Wisconsin 27, Wisconsin-Green Bay 23

USA TODAY Sports

The Badgers started slow but used a 13-2 run to take a four-point halftime lead.

The Badgers started out sluggish in Wednesday night's context against UW-Green Bay at the Kohl Center, falling behind 9-2 at the under-14 timeout. The Badgers shot just 10-for-26 (38.5 percent) in the half but rode a 13-2 closing run to take a 27-23 lead.

The turning point came with about six minutes to play as Ryan Evans went on a personal 6-0 run, hitting a long jumper, bringing out the Kohl Center's biggest cheer of the night with two made free throws (putting his total to 16-for-46 for the season) and hitting a layup to bring the score to 21-20.

Jared Berggren would make the most noise, however, with a thunderous dunk over Phoenix guard Kam Cerroni to give the Badgers a 24-23 lead. The sluggishness returned as the half finished, with no scoring in the final two minutes by either team.

Evans (2-5 FG, 2-2 FT) and George Marshall (2-2 FG, 2-2 3P) hold the Badger team lead with six points each. Sam Dekker has a game-high five rebounds (tied with Phoenix forward Brennan Cougill) to go with four points. Ben Brust joins Phoenix guard Keifer Sykes as the only players with multiple assists at two apiece.
