First-half run sends Wisconsin past Ohio State 70-57


A late first-half run pushed Wisconsin to a 38-20 halftime lead, and the Badgers stayed in front for a 70-57 victory over Ohio State on Sunday at the Kohl Center.

Wisconsin, celebrating the 20th anniversary of its 2000 Final Four team, got 19 points from Brevin Pritzl to lead the way to victory.

In a throwback performance, the Badgers allowed Ohio State just 36% shooting from the floor, and Wisconsin assisted on 17 of its 24 made field goals.

Wisconsin moved into a three-way tie for sixth place in the Big Ten, and has the week off before playing Nebraska on Saturday on the road.
