Nov. 4, 2012

MADISON, Wis. -- The 2012-13 season is full of storylines for the Badgers, but at Sunday's annual Red/White Scrimmage, all eyes were on the point guard showdown between redshirt freshman George Marshall and sophomore Traevon Jackson. The duo didn't disappoint.

At the end of two 20-minute games, Marshall finished with 14 points (4-for-5 from 3-point range), two rebounds and two assists while leading the Red squad to a 51-37 win in the first game and pulling out a 27-27 draw in the rematch.

"He handled himself well," head coach Bo Ryan said of Marshall. "He took care of the ball, he knocked down some big shots and he played pretty good defense."

"Today I just think I was getting a feel back for the game, playing with the lights on," Marshall said. "I've always been a player who loves the pressure, loves the competition, loves playing under the lights. This was just another step to get better."

 Fast Facts
• Red shoots 11-for-18 (.611) from 3-point range
• Marshall scores final 8 pts of Red's game-one win
• Five players in double-figures for Red

On the opposite bench, Jackson was nearly perfect from the floor, hitting 7-of-8 shots for 16 points, while dishing three assists with zero turnovers.

"He's got a good shot, especially that pull-up jumper," Ryan said of Jackson. "That's his shot. Both he and Ben (Brust) and George (Marshall), they've got scoring ability."

The lead guards were only part of the show for the 3,597 people in attendance as the Badgers big men led the way in the scoring column. Sophomore Frank Kaminsky (White team) led all scorers with 20 points, six rebounds and three blocks, going a perfect 7-for-7 at the free throw line.

"He's got a great feel, and he didn't even shoot it as well (from the outside) as I think he's going to some games," Ryan said of Kaminsky. "He's got a nice touch -- you see the rotation, you see the elbow lift. And he's a good passer."

The senior duo of Ryan Evans and Jared Berggren paced the Red team, who shot 46.8 percent from the field, including 61.1 percent (11-for-18) from 3-point range. Evans scored 18 points and grabbed a game-high seven rebounds, while Berggren tallied 15 points, six rebounds, four blocks and a steal.

Junior Zach Bohannon, who redshirted last season after transferring from Air Force, also reached double figures, scoring 13 points (2-for-2 from 3-point range) while hauling in six rebounds, three steals.

"He's a digger," Ryan said of Bohannon. "If you get lazy with a rebound around him, it's gone around him. I've had some players like that. Probably the best was Steve Showalter, Zak's (Showalter) dad. If you just got lazy with the ball for one second, he'd flip it from underneath and dig it out. Zach (Bohannon) has a good habit of getting away with that too."

Getting their first taste of action at the Kohl Center since winning the high school state tournament last season, freshmen Sam Dekker and Zak Showalter held their own. Dekker finished with 10 points, four rebounds and a steal, while Showalter had four points, four rebounds and two assists.

The Badgers will host UW-Oshkosh on Wednesday, Nov. 7, in the team's only exhibition contest of the season. Tip-off at the Kohl Center is slated for 7 p.m.
