MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Wisconsin in seventh place was too big – and everything else – for the unmanned Arkansas Pine Bluff.
Micah Potter scored 19 points and D’Mitrik Trice added 15 when Wisconsin used its economies of scale to overpower the Golden Lions 92-58 in a non-conference game on Friday night.
Wisconsin (2-0) scored the first 25 points of the game, hitting 10 of their first 13 shots before Kshun Stokes hit 10:05 on a floater for the Golden Lions in the first half.
« A great start, of course, but I think the most important thing was that we stuck to how we had to play for the most part and not get loose and sloppy, » said Wisconsin coach Greg Gard. « And that’s a challenge, especially when the score is sliding in one direction really fast. ”
« We just dug a big hole, and you can’t dig a hole like that against a really, really good basketball team, » said George Ivory, Arkansas-Pine Bluff coach.
The Badgers extended their lead to 45-10 on two free throws from Nate Reuvers. Joshuwan Johnson scored seven points in a row for the only offensive Golden Lions riot in the half, making it 47-19. With the game firmly in hand, Wisconsin replaced early and often with eight players recording at least 10 minutes by half time.
With the 6-foot-11 reuvers, 6-10 Potter and 6-8 Ford on the front, the Badgers had a huge advantage of size over Arkansas-Pine Bluff, whose biggest sophomore is 6-9, Alvin Stredic Jr. was. who caught three fouls in the first half.
Wisconsin scored 38 points for the color compared to 18 for the Golden Lions. The Badgers also shot 10-for-19 from 3-point range, including three from Trice.
« When you play against two guys like they are inside, 6-10 and 6-11, it was tough for our guys, » said Ivory. « But it’s a good learning experience for our team to attend the conference. We’re not going to see great people who know our league. « . ”
It was the Badgers’ second easy win in a row, beating Eastern Illinois 77-67 in Wednesday’s opener, after half leading by 23.
« We’ve been exposed to a few things we need to do in-house, things we know we need to fix, » said Potter. « But without these preseason games, it’s hard to figure that out before we actually start playing. « . The biggest thing is just fine-tuning to make sure we fix things we are weak on because in the Big Ten season it becomes a struggle every day. ”
Given the strength of their opponents, Wisconsin’s two wins are unlikely to have much of an impact on the poll ranking unless the teams above them are upset.
Arkansas-Pine Bluff: The Golden Lions face a daunting schedule that starts with nine street games and ends in runner-up Baylor.
Wisconsin: After two wins, the Badgers face rivals Wisconsin-Green Bay and Marquette, followed by a home game against Louisville.
