Hot-shooting Badgers blitz Ohio State

Bronson Koenig scored 21 points as No. 18 Wisconsin recovered from a poor shooting performance four days earlier to blitz Ohio State 89-66 on Thursday night.

Ohio State will avoid matching or exceeding its worst loss to Wisconsin (78-48 during the 2003-04 season, per ESPN Stats & Info). But this was an embarrassing effort by the Buckeyes.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Per ESPN Stats & Info, Wisconsin outscored Ohio State 22-8 in the paint in the first half. Badgers also 6 for 12 from the 3-point line. Wisconsin dominating Buckeyes on both ends of the floor.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Ohio State's limitations were clear before this game. They could beat you if Tate and Lyle could find a way to slash and score. Can't hit 3s. Struggle at the free throw line. So if your only chance to beat elite teams is to take your man off the dribble, you'll always be in trouble against a team like Wisconsin.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Wisconsin has a chemistry few teams can match. That's what we say about every team, but the difference between this Badgers team and the one that struggled during the transition to Gard last year is how comfortable players are with their roles.
