TEAM NOTES
• Wisconsin topped the 100-point mark for the first time since a 105-70 win over Eastern Illinois on Dec. 28, 1995.

• The Badgers’ previous high at the Kohl Center was a 99-55 win over Prairie View A&M on Nov. 14, 2010.

• With the win, Bo Ryan improved to 295-113 (.723) in 13 seasons at Wisconsin. Ryan is also now 678-216 (.758) record during his 30 years of coaching in the college ranks.

• UW is 121-30 (.800) in non-conference games under Ryan.

• The Badgers improved to 183-18 (.910) at home under Bo Ryan, including a 92-7 (.929) record in non-conference home tilts. UW is 219-30 (.880) all-time at the Kohl Center.

• Wisconsin enjoyed an 18-4 run midway through the first half, turning a 25-24 lead into a 43-28 advantage.  The run was jump-started by a 9-0 run from back-to-back 3-pointer from Frank Kaminsky and another from Ben Brust.

• The Badgers finished with four double-figure scorers for the first time since their win over Indiana on March 16, 2013.

• UW scored 55 points in the first half, its most since scoring 58 in the second half of a 99-55 win over Prairie View A&M on Nov. 14, 2010.

• The Badgers’ 35 made field goals were their most since going 35-for-59 (.593) vs. SIU-Edwardsville on Nov. 18, 2008.

• The Badgers finished 12-for-20 from 3-point range (.600), shooting at least 60.0% from distance for the first time since hitting 15 of 25 (.600) vs. Kennesaw State on Nov. 12, 2011.

INDIVIDUAL NOTES
• Junior Frank Kaminsky scored a Wisconsin school-record 43 points on 16-for-19 shooting (6-for-6 from 3-point range). Kaminsky’s total surpassed the record of 42 held by Ken Barnes (vs. Indiana, 3/8/65) and Michael Finley (at Eastern Michigan, 12/10/94).

• Kaminsky’s 43 points are the most scored by a Division I player this season.

• Kaminsky's 43 points matches the 43 scored by Illinois' Brandon Paul against Ohio State on Jan. 10, 2012 as the most by any player in the Big Ten since 1996-97. In fact, Kaminsky and Paul are two of only four 40-point performances by a Big Ten player in that span, joining Minnesota's Andre Hollins who posted 41 against Memphis on Nov. 23, 2012 and Ohio State's Jared Sullinger who scored 40 against IUPUI on Dec. 9. 2010.

• Kaminsky is the first Badgers player to score at least 30 points in a game since Rob Wilson had 30 vs. Indiana in the 2012 Big Ten Tournament on March 9, 2012.

• Kaminsky is one of just four Division I players since 1996-97 to score 43 points and shoot at least 84.0 percent from the field in a game.

• According to ESPN, Kaminsky and Chris Kaman are the only 7-foot Division I players to score 40-plus points in a game over the last 15 seasons. Kaman had 43 points for Central Michigan in a win over Ball State on Feb. 19, 2003.

• Sophomore Sam Dekker matched his career high with 19 points on 8-for-12 shooting. He has scored in double figures in 13 of his last 16 games dating back to last season.

• Junior Traevon Jackson tallied a season-high 14 points, 5 rebounds and a career-high 8 assists against 1 turnover in 33 minutes. Jackson’s 8 assists are the most by a UW player since Jordan Taylor had 10 vs. Green Bay on Dec. 7, 2011.

• Senior Ben Brust pulled down a team-high 8 rebounds to go along with 10 points. Brust has had at least 8 rebounds in two of the Badgers’ three games this season.

• Freshmen Jordan Hill and Vitto Brown both saw their first collegiate action, playing one minute each.
