Kaminsky helps No. 6 Wisconsin top Buffalo 68-56
Badgers rally from first half deficit
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Frank Kaminsky had 25 points and 11 rebounds, leading No. 6 Wisconsin to a 68-56 victory over Buffalo on Sunday night.
Sam Dekker added 13 points for Wisconsin (12-1), which opens Big Ten play on Wednesday against Penn State.
Justin Moss led four Bulls (7-3) in double figures with 14 points.
Other than Kaminsky, the Badgers had a poor first half. While the senior forward went 5 of 10 from the field, the rest of the team was 5 of 22, and Wisconsin trailed 27-26 at the break. It was only the second time this season the Badgers faced a deficit at half.
But the Badgers found their stroke in the second half. After shooting 31 percent in the first half, they hit better than 55 percent of their shots in the second.
