MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Frank Kaminsky scored a school-record 43 points, and No. 12 Wisconsin shot a blistering 59 percent from the field to beat pesky North Dakota 103-85 on Tuesday night.
Kaminsky, a junior who became a starter this season, got the record with about a minute left after driving the lane and splitting two defenders for an easy layup.
Sam Dekker added 19 for the Badgers (4-0), who overcame a career-high 37 points - 26 in the first half - from athletic sharpshooter Troy Huff.
Kaminsky's dunk helped Wisconsin gradually turn its 10-point halftime lead into a 76-59 advantage on North Dakota (1-1) with 10:32 left.
The Badgers came out victorious after Kaminsky and Huff traded buckets much of the night. Kaminsky finished 16 of 19 shooting, hitting all six of his 3s.
