It may have taken a few minutes of playing time for Wisconsin to assert its dominance over Coastal Carolina — much to the chagrin of Badgers fans and the delight of Chanticleers fans — but in the end Frank the Tank and friends were too much for the Big South tournament champs, as Wisconsin rolled to a 86-72  win. The 32nd win of the season for Wisconsin sets a new school single-season record.

Impact Player

Frank Kaminsky (of course) led all scorers with 27 points and added 12 rebounds and a block. Teammate Sam Dekker had 20 points.

Strange, Yet True

Despite having a clear size advantage, Wisconsin frequently opted for the deep ball, putting up a total of 27 3-point attempts in the game.
