MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Ben Brust scored 20 points and grabbed 12 rebounds Tuesday night as Wisconsin beat Presbyterian 88-43.

It was the third double-double of the season for Brust, who became the first Wisconsin player to record three double-doubles in a four-game stretch since Mike Wilkinson did it in the 2004-05 season.

 Fast Facts
Ben Brust records third double-double in four games
• Badgers hits 16 3-pointers, one shy of single-game school record
• UW scores most single-game points since 2010-11

"He’s got a nose for the ball," UW head coach Bo Ryan said. "The sample size is bigger and how can a guy do that at his size as many times?

"The opportunities are there sometimes. Missed shots bounce his way. Where hard work meets opportunity, guys can get pretty lucky."

Sam Dekker came off the bench to score 16 for Wisconsin (3-1), while George Marshall added 12 and Frank Kaminsky 10.

Khalid Mutakabbir scored 14 to lead Presbyterian (0-4), and Joshua Clyburn had 10.

Presbyterian only connected on one of its first 10 shots and was already down 20 points midway through the first half after Marshall connected on a 3-pointer.

Kaminsky converted a three-point play with just more than 2 minutes left in the half to push the lead to 25 points, and Wisconsin poured it on from there.

The Badgers recorded 16 made 3-point shots, just one short of UW's single-game record. Brust led the way with six long balls nearly tying his own record he set last season on two different occassions. 

UW finished 16-of-37 from beyond the arc, due primarily to the team's ability to find the open man and make the extra pass.

"This team, it wasn’t the length or the bounce, but the extra pass was there," Ryan said. "(With) the extra (passes) sometimes you get a much better look and we recognized sometimes when guys went under screens, when we were open for three--inside outside action.

"We did move the ball well."

The Badgers continue the Las Vegas Invitational with a trip to Nevada to take on No. 15 Creighton on Friday at 9 p.m.
