The three point gods were smiling on the Badgers Tuesday night and Wisconsin got Greg Gard win No. 50!

NCAA Basketball: Nebraska at Wisconsin Mary Langenfeld-USA TODAY Sports

Here are some fun facts, courtesy of the UW Athletic Department, on the Wisconsin Badgers win at home against the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Tuesday night.

  • Gard became the 52nd coach in history to win 50 Big Ten games.
  • His .610 win percentage in conference play ranks No. 8 among Big Ten coaches with 50 wins over the last 40 years.
  • The Badgers improved to 17-14 all-time vs. Nebraska, including a mark of 11-4 since the Huskers joined the Big Ten in 2011.
  • UW connected on a school-record 18 3-pointers, by eight different players.
  • Those players were, in order of threes made: Brevin Pritzl, Brad Davison, D’Mitrik Trice, Micah Potter, Aleem Ford, Tyler Wahl, Nate Reuvers and Trevor Anderson.
  • The Badgers’ 18 3-pointers are the most by a Big Ten team since Iowa connected on 19 against Savannah State on Dec. 22, 2018.
  • UW shot a season-high 52.9% from 3-point range, going 18-for-34. That’s the team’s highest mark since going 9-for-16 against Purdue on Jan. 11, 2019.
  • With four blocks tonight, Reuvers now has 127 career blocked shots, passing Rashard Griffith (124) for fourth place in UW history. Jared Berggren is in third place with 144.
  • Junior G D’Mitrik Trice tallied 11 points, a career-best 10 rebounds and matched his career high with seven assists. Trice is the first Wisconsin guard to post at least 10p, 10r and 5a since Josh Gasser’s triple-double (10p, 12r, 10a) against Northwestern on Jan. 23, 2011. Trice also matched his career high with three steals.
  • Junior G Brad Davison finished with 14 points and six rebounds. Davison knocked down a season-high four 3-pointers.
  • Walk-on junior F Samad Qawi had two fouls, one offensive rebound and missed a shot in 47 seconds of playing time. Filling up the box score!
