MADISON, WI (WSAU) The Wisconsin men’s basketball team will host Nebraska-Omaha tonight. The Badgers are coming off an 81-to-56 home rout of California on Sunday, in which the Golden Bears failed to go 7-and-0 for the first time since the 1950’s. It also started a new winning streak for the Badgers at the Kohl Center, where they’ve only lost 16 games in Bo Ryan’s 12 seasons as coach.
Wisconsin is 5-and-3, and junior Ben Brust had double-doubles in three of those eight games. He’s averaging 13-and-a-half points – and he’s third in the Big Ten in rebounds with seven-and-a-half per contest.
Nebraska-Omaha is in its second year in the N-C-A-A’s Division-One as a member of the Summit League. They’re coming off a 78-63 loss to defending league champion South Dakota State on Saturday night. Center John Karhoff led Omaha in that game with 16 points and three rebounds. Tonight will be the Mavs’ eighth game in a 10-game road trip. Omaha is 2-and-7 overall, and has dropped four-of-its-last-five.
Also tonight, the U-W Milwaukee women host Bradley. The U-W Parkside men are at home against Northland International. And the Parkside women entertain Finlandia.
