MINNEAPOLIS  — Bronson Koenig had 14 points and six assists, Ethan Happ added 12 points and 10 rebounds and Wisconsin breezed by undermanned Minnesota 62-49 on Wednesday night, March 2nd, the 11th win by the Badgers in their last 12 games.

Vitto Brown pitched in 12 points and six rebounds for Wisconsin (20-10, 12-5 Big Ten), which moved into a tie for second place with No. 2 Michigan State.

Stephon Sharp scored 16 points and Jordan Murphy added 15 for the Gophers (8-21, 2-15), who played without suspended guards Kevin Dorsey, Nate Mason and Dupree McBrayer for the second straight game.

Mason is the team’s leading scorer. The trio was punished for a sexually explicit video that appeared on Dorsey’s social media accounts.

Minnesota went 3 for 17 from 3-point range against a Wisconsin team that’s last in the league in 3-point defense.
