MADISON – There were no style points awarded for the University of Wisconsin, but the Badgers found a way to grind out an in-state victory.
No.14 Wisconsin didn’t find its rhythm until a 12-0 run erased any doubts in the Badgers’ 73-59 victory over Green Bay Wednesday night.
Happ added a career-high six assists and Showalter added four points and two steals on the second half run to help the Badgers improve to 19-0 against Green Bay (4-6) at home.
Kerem Kanter scored 18 points to lead the Phoenix, which never got its up-tempo offense or trap defense in rhythm against an experienced Wisconsin squad. A year after the Phoenix forced 26 turnovers in a five-point loss at the Kohl Center, Wisconsin committed just nine this year.
The Badgers will be off the next eight days for final exams before playing their final nonconference game against Florida A&M at the Kohl Center Dec.23.
