WISCONSIN SPORTS ROUNDUP: Badgers men's hoops rout Platteville
The Wisconsin men's basketball team trailed by seven points at the half last night to Division-Three U-W Platteville -- but the Badgers pulled away in the second half for an 80-51 exhibition victory. The Pioneers shot 50-percent in the first half, but they cooled off later and hit 18-of-48 for the game, a 37-and-a-half percent clip. Wisconsin out-scored Platteville 40-to-18 in the paint, and out-rebounded the Pioneers 40-to-21. Senior guard Ben Brust led the Badgers with 20 points.
