Wisconsin routs Wofford 69-33

Nov 20, 2011 - 6:48 AM Madison, WI (Sports Network) - Josh Gasser shot 4-for-4 from behind the arc en route to a 16-point night, leading No. 14 Wisconsin to a 69-33 romp of Wofford.

Ryan Evans and Jared Berggren each netted 13 points for the Badgers (3-0), who shot 50 percent from the field and held the Terriers to 27 percent.

Wofford (1-2), coming off a win over Emory & Henry, got 10 points apiece from Kevin Giltner and Karl Cochran.

"Credit to the Badgers. They were that much better tonight than we were," Wofford head coach Mike Young said.

The early season contest did not resemble the tight battle the two programs had in the 2010 NCAA Tournament, with the Badgers narrowly escaping with a 53-49 first-round win.

The Terriers stayed close for the first 10 minutes Saturday, as Cochran's three-pointer pulled them within 13-10, but they were the last points the visitors had until the final seconds before the break.

Gasser began the subsequent 19-point flurry with a three-pointer and hit another one from long range for a 27-10 cushion that ballooned to 32-12 by intermission.

"It happened at the defensive end. That zero is what I like seeing. Our offense was generated from defense," Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan said of the 19-0 run.

Consecutive three-pointers from Evans and Gasser, followed by a jumper from Berggren, put the Terriers behind, 42-15, just four minutes into the second half, and the outcome was all but finalized.
