Wisconsin bounces back, crushes Ohio State, 70-57


MADISON, Wis. — After one of its worst performances of the season, Wisconsin needed to find a signature win to put the NCAA Tournament back within striking distance.

The Badgers (14-10, 7-6 Big Ten) did just that Sunday, crushing Ohio State, 70-57, at the Kohl Center in Madison.

Wisconsin rode an 18-point halftime lead and never looked back in the rout. Brevin Pritzl had five three-pointers off the bench and 19 total points.

Aleem Ford nearly had a double-double for the Badgers with 10 points and nine rebounds.

The Badgers are 11-1 at home this season.

Wisconsin is off all week until a matchup in Lincoln on Saturday with Nebraska.
