Recap: Wisconsin vs. Eastern Ky

Madison, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Ben Brust scored 20 points, Nigel Hayes added 17 and the No. 4 Wisconsin Badgers stayed undefeated by rolling past Eastern Kentucky, 86-61, on Saturday.

The Badgers (12-0) are off to the best start in the program's modern history, which dates back to 1946.

"I just think overall we have a lot of different parts that come together and fit nicely," said Brust. "We have freshmen, we have sophomores, we have juniors, we have seniors, so just a lot of different pieces that all kind of just come together. But we still have a lot of work to do."

Sam Dekker scored 15 of his 16 points in the first half as Wisconsin built a huge lead and won going away. Frank Kaminsky battled through a foot injury and put up 13 points, six rebounds and four assists in the resounding win.

Glenn Cosey provided 21 points for the Colonels (7-4), who were beaten soundly on the boards, 33-20, were outscored at the free throw line by a wide 25-9 margin and watched the Badgers shoot 60.5 percent from the field.

"I think Wisconsin showed why it's the fourth-ranked team in the country," said Eastern Kentucky coach Jeff Neubauer. "They're incredibly efficient at the offensive end and their defense is as disciplined a defense as I've ever seen."

Eastern Kentucky actually led, 8-7, early on, but Wisconsin responded with a 21-3 flurry over an eight-minute span.

Brust ignited things with a pair of 3-pointers, and Dekker ended the run with a three-point play that pushed Wisconsin's lead to 28-11 with 6 1/2 minutes left in the half.

It was 42-23 in Wisconsin's favor at the break, and the hosts led by as many as 33 in the second half.
