PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) — D’Mitrik Trice set career highs with 25 points and a tournament-record seven 3-pointers to help Wisconsin beat Oklahoma in the Battle 4 Atlantis.

Trice started 7 for 7 from behind the arc, the last coming when he pump-faked a defender and stepped to his right to bury the shot for a 66-47 lead with 6:22 left. He finally missed a 3 less than a minute later to finish 7 for 8 for the Badgers (5-0).

Christian James scored 18 points for the Sooners (4-1).
