January 8, 2014 - The Wisconsin Badgers,
ranked No. 4, downed Illinois 95-70 to run their record to 16-0 and record the
best start in program history. The Badgers had five players in double figures.
Ben Brust with 18, Sam Dekker with 17, Frank Kaminsky and
Traevon Jackson had 15 and Nigel Hayes had 11. The Badgers (16-0,
3-0 Big Ten) set a program record for most consecutive victories to start the
season. The 1911-12 and 1913-14 teams each posted 15-0 seasons. One of the more
impressive things about that streak is UW has won while scoring in the 40s, 50s,
60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and even one game over the century mark.
