Frank Kaminsky scored 26 points and No. 3 Wisconsin beat Boise State 78-54 on Saturday night.

Nigel Hayes added 15 points for the Badgers (4-0), and Traevon Jackson had 11.

Derrick Marks led Boise State (3-1) with 16 points.

The Broncos were able to hang with Wisconsin early as they outrebounded the Badgers in the first half 14-13. Six of those were offensive rebounds that the Broncos turned into four points.

But eventually the accurate shooting of Kaminsky and the rest of the Badgers proved too much. Kaminsky hit all seven shots he took in the first half, including three 3-pointers, and the Badgers shot 55 percent for the game.

Wisconsin also contained Boise State's leading scorer, Anthony Drmic. He was averaging almost 21 points per game coming in, but managed just seven.
