MADISON, Wis. (AP) Wisconsin made more 3-pointers in its game against McNeese than it did in its first two games of the season. But it took the Badgers one half to get going from long range.
Brad Davison scored a game-high 24 points, Aleem Ford added a career-high 16 points and Wisconsin drained 10 3 pointers in its 83-63 win against McNeese on Wednesday night.
Ford, who had two 3-pointers and shot 7 of 11 from the field, said it was a tale of two halves. And as the Badgers (2-1) picked up their defense, the shots went in. Wisconsin shot a season-high 10 of 28 from beyond the arc.
