Wisconsin starts slow, knocks off Green Bay

Ryan Evans scored 13 points to lead Wisconsin to a 65-54 win over Wisconsin-Green Bay on Wednesday night. Sam Dekker and Jared Berggren each added 10 points for the Badgers (7-4).

Keifer Sykes scored 14 points to lead the Phoenix (3-6), while Brennan Cougill added 12.

Coming off a deflating loss to in-state rival Marquette on Saturday, the Badgers started the game in a funk. They hit just four of their first 14 shots, and Green Bay led 19-12 a little more than midway through the first half.

But the Badgers went on a 15-4 run to close the half and opened the second on a 12-4 spurt to take a 39-27 lead.
