Virginia Defense Smothers Badger Shooters In Low-Scoring Game

The Virginia Cavaliers lived up to their name, using a smothering defense to stop Wisconsin shooters cold in a 49-37 Monday night game. 

Wisconsin has played four teams ranked in the Top-25 and lost to all four.  Ethan Happ led the Badgers with 14 points and eight rebounds, but the game was so lop-sided the result wasn't in doubt at all during the last 10 minutes.  Wisconsin hit just three-of-20 3-pointers and shot only 31 percent overall.  Trailing by four points at half, Happ scored the first six points of the second half, then the Badgers were scoreless for the next eight minutes.  D'Mitrik Trice was the only other Wisconsin player in double figures with 10.  Kyle Guy scored 17 for Virginia and he got 16-point help from Devon Hall.  The next game for Wisconsin is coming up Saturday against Ohio State.
