Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Ben Brust scored 20 points to lead four Wisconsin players in double figures and the fourth-ranked Badgers beat Eastern Kentucky 86-61 on Saturday.

Freshman reserve Nigel Hayes scored a career-high 17 points for the Badgers (12-0), who are off to the best start to a season since 1915-16 when they started 12-0 and finished 20-1.

Sam Dekker added 16 points, while Frank Kaminsky shrugged off a right foot injury that hampered him this week to add 13.

Glenn Cosey scored 21 points to lead the Colonels (7-4), while Orlando Williams added 13.

Wisconsin, which averages 21 free throws a game, went 25 of 33 from the free throw line as the undersized Colonels committed 26 fouls.

The Badgers finished 9 of 15 from beyond the 3-point line.
