(WNFL) - Bo Ryan has become the ninth coach to win 300 games at a Big Ten school, after the Wisconsin men's basketball team won at Virginia last night, 48-to-38. It was one of the final games in the Big Ten-A-C-C Challenge. Each conference had six victories for the second year in a row. The eighth-ranked Badgers countered Virginia's solid defense by holding the Cavaliers to just 23-percent shooting -- the fourth-lowest in Virginia history. The 38 points were Virginia's lowest since 1993. Wisconsin shot only 29-percent, and was held to almost 29 points below its season average -- but the Badgers still did enough to improve to 9-and-0. Wisconsin led by five points after a first half in which Virginia went 10 minutes without making a field goal. Nobody scored in the first three-and-a-half minutes of the second half, until Sam Dekker scored inside and Ben Brust hit a three-pointer to put Wisconsin up by 10. Free throws accounted for all the scoring in the final six minutes. Josh Gasser (gah'-ser) led all scorers with 11 for the Badgers. London Perrantes led Virginia with eight. Joe Harris, the Cavaliers' leading scorer, only hit 1-of-10 shots from the floor as Virginia ended a six-game winning streak. The Badgers will host Marquette Saturday.
