Monday’s win was the seventh-straight home opener win for the Badgers, but Milwaukee had a few runs to make it a single-digit lead before Wisconsin pulled away. Kendall Nead had 18 points for Milwaukee, including some third quarter 3s and a late fourth quarter bucket in the paint to make it just a five-point game.
