Grambling State (6-7) tested the Badgers early. But with just more than seven minutes to go in the first half, Lasani Johnson's 3-pointer tied it at 22. The Badgers finished the half on a 17-5 run, opened the second half with an 8-0 spurt and weren't challenged the rest of the way.

The Tigers scored just seven points over a nearly 15-minute period that spanned both halves. The Badgers pushed their lead to more than 30 for the first time at 62-31.

Sophomores D'Mitrik Trice (14), Nate Reuvers (10) and Kobe King (10) also recorded double-digit points for the Badgers.
