PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas — De'Andre Hunter had 20 points and nine rebounds to help No. 4 Virginia beat No. 25 Wisconsin 53–46 on Friday in the Battle 4 Atlantis championship game.
Ty Jerome added 11 points for the Cavaliers (6–0), who led 33–18 after a strong first half, and then sputtered offensively as the Badgers kept pushing back. Virginia made just 2 of 16 shots out of halftime and shot 26% for the second half.
But the Cavs' usual tough defense was good enough to keep the Badgers and preseason Associated Press All-American Ethan Happ at arm's distance.
Happ finished with 22 points, 15 rebounds and six assists for Wisconsin (5–1), which shot 52% after halftime to cut into the deficit. The Badgers got as close as five four separate times in the second half, but could never overtake the Cavaliers.
