. . 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 overwhelm 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 off the track 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 Greg Gard, Wisconsin coach. "And that's a challenge, especially when the score is sliding in one direction really fast. Arkansas-Pine Bluff missed the first eleven shots and made five turnovers before finally scoring. "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. Reuvers added 14 points and Aleem Ford 10 for Wisconsin. Shaun Doss Jr. . had 16 points and Johnson 13 for Arkansas-Pine Bluff (0-2). With the 6-foot-11 penitents, 6-10 Potter and 6-8 Ford on the front, the Badgers had a huge advantage of size over Arkansas-Pine Bluff, whose biggest starter was 6-9 sophomore Alvin Stredic Jr. . who caught three fouls in the first half. Wisconsin scored 38. . .
