MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Jared Berggren scored 13 points to lead four Wisconsin players in double figures and the 14th-ranked Badgers beat Savannah State 66-33 on Thursday night.
Playing for the last time before final exams begin, the Badgers (10-2) used runs of 11-0 and 11-2 in the first half to push their lead to 30-10 with 4 minutes left.
The Tigers (4-8) looked like they might give Wisconsin a challenge early in the second half. They cut the lead to 15 points twice, the last time at 41-26 with just under 14 minutes to go.
But Wisconsin poured it on from there, reeling off a 23-4 run over the next 12 minutes before coach Bo Ryan pulled all of his starters.
Cedric Smith and Arnold Lewis led the Tigers with eight points each.
Ryan Evans and Jordan Taylor both scored 12 points for the Badgers, while Josh Gasser had 10.
