TORONTO, Ontario -- In a re-match from two days earlier, the Badgers wrapped up their five-game exhibition tour of Canada with a game against men's select team, A-Game Hoops Monday afternoon at St. Michael's College. The result - albeit closer - was ultimately the same as Saturday's affair, a 113-105 overtime win.

Wisconsin ended its trip across the border with a 4-1 record and a lot of experience for a young team.

The Badgers were led by a pair of double-doubles from junior Frank Kaminsky and sophomore Sam Dekker. Kaminsky paced UW with 26 points, 11 rebounds and 3 blocks. Dekker, who had just nine points in the first game vs. A-Game Hoops, posted 23 points and 10 rebounds.

 Fast Facts
• UW's biggest lead was 69-49 in 3rd quarter
• Jackson scored 8 points in overtime
• UW shot 50% and out-rebounded A-Game, 44-33

Dekker finished the trip averaging a team-high 19.4 ppg with Kaminsky not far behind at 15.6 ppg. Dekker shot a scorching 62.7 percent from the field on the trip, including 9-for-14 from 3-point range and led the team averaging 8.2 boards per game.

Traevon Jackson (17), Ben Brust (14) and George Marshall (13) rounded out Wisconsin's double figure scorers.

Brust and Jackson averaged 11.4 points per game each during the exhibition season, while Marshall chipped in 9.0 ppg and Duje Dukan tallied 8.8 ppg.

Kaminsky was hot from the start, scoring five of UW's first seven points as UW got off to a 9-3 start. The lead would extend to 42-34 at intermission and then 69-49 on back-to-back triples from Marshall and junior Duje Dukan late in the third quarter.

A-Game didn't go away quietly however as guards Tut Rauch (31 points) and Alex Johnson (26 points) caught fire from the outside and fueled a big comeback. Rauch, who shot 7-for-10 from 3-point range, gave A-Game an 88-87 lead with just 1:37 left in regulation.

UW regained the lead with a 5-0 run on a trey from Dekker and a pair of free throws from Jackson. Moments later, two more Jackson free throws gave Wisconsin a 97-94 lead with 7.7 seconds remaining. That's when Rauch nailed his fifth 3-pointer of the fourth quarter, tying the game at 97-97 at the end of regulation.

The Badgers would score the first seven points of the extra session on a pair of Jackson buckets and a Marshall 3-pointer to gain a 104-97 lead. A-Game would never get closer than within four the rest of the way as UW pulled out the 113-105 win. Jackson ended up scoring eight of the Badgers' 16 points in the extra session.

After averaging 14.3 minutes per game in the first four contests, junior Josh Gasser was given the afternoon off. Senior Zach Bohannon earned the starting nod in his place, joining Jackson, Brust, Dekker and Kaminsky in the opening lineup.

UW shot 50.0 percent (40-80) from the floor and converted 20-of-26 from the free throw line, while out-rebounding A-Game, 44-33.

Wisconsin scoring:
Kaminsky-26; Dekker-23; Jackson-17; Brust-14; Marshall-13; Dukan-7; Bohannon-5; Hayes-4; Anderson-2; Showalter-2.
