Wisconsin defeats Samford 87-51


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Mike Bruesewitz returned to the starting lineup in style, scoring 13 points as Wisconsin closed out its non-conference schedule with an 87-51 victory over Samford on Saturday.

Bruesewitz, whose total was a season high, was one of five players in double figures for the Badgers (9-4). He sustained a concussion in practice on Dec. 6, missed two games and came off the bench last Saturday in a win over Milwaukee.

Frank Kaminsky poured in a career-best 16 points, Ryan Evans added 14 points and 12 rebounds, Sam Dekker scored 12 and Jared Berggren had 10 for Wisconsin, which opened up a 30-point lead before halftime. The Badgers open Big Ten play Jan. 3 at home against Penn State.

Raijon Kelly scored 16 points to lead the Bulldogs (3-11), who missed their first five shots and trailed 13-2 just more than 5 minutes into the game.
