Wisconsin 71, Cal State Fullerton 56
Butch, Wisconsin outmuscle Cal-State Fullerton

OMAHA, Nebraska (Ticker) -- Wisconsin's frontcourt was too much
for Cal-State Fullerton and its hot-shooting guard to handle.

Brian Butch had 14 points and nine rebounds and Joe Krabbenhoft
added 13 and nine as the third-seeded Badgers pulled away for a
71-56 victory over the 14th-seeded Titans in the Midwest
Regional's first-round matchup on Thursday.

Wisconsin (30-4) outrebounded the smaller Titans, who do not
have a starter taller than 6-5, 50-27, for the game and will
move on to face Kansas State in the second round on Saturday.

Trailing by one early in the second half, Wisconsin went on a
15-3 run - capped by a layup by Krabbenhoft - to take a 45-34
bulge with 12:24 left to play.

Josh Akognon matched a career high with 31 points to try and
keep the Titans in the game, but Cal-State Fullerton (25-9)
never got closer than eight over the final 10 minutes of the
contest.
