Brown's career-high leads Badgers to sixth straight win

Vitto Brown scored a career-high 18 points, and Nigel Hayes added 20, as Wisconsin won its sixth straight contest with a 72-61 triumph over Nebraska Wednesday night.

The Badgers hit 11 three-pointers and shot 61% from beyond the arc. Bronson Koenig and Zak Showalter also cracked double digits for Wisconsin, who has cracked the NCAA Tournament discussion with a win streak that has run their conference record to 7-4.

A tough stretch of games lies ahead for the Badgers, who play three of their next four on the road against teams ranked in the top eight of the AP poll - Maryland, Michigan State and Iowa. Michigan also makes an appearance at the Kohl Center, where the Badgers haven't lost in more than a month.
