MADISON (WITI) — Jared Berggren had the third double-double of his career (15 points, 12 rebounds) as the Wisconsin Badgers raced out to a 14-0 lead, then stunned 12th-ranked Illinois 74-51 at the Kohl Center in Madison on Saturday afternoon.

Coach Bo Ryan called it his team’s most complete game this season; the 74 point outburst was stunning, considering that the Badgers scored just 47 points in their last game, at Nebraska.

The host-who have won 6 in a row-led by twenty at halftime, while improving their record to 12 and 4…3 and 0 in the Big Ten.
