Madison (WQOW) -- We've become accustomed to home wins by the Wisconsin men's basketball team, but we're not really used to the Badgers breaking scoring records.

Twelfth-ranked Wisconsin beat North Dakota Tuesday night, 103-85, as the Badgers improved to 183-18 at the Kohl Center under head coach Bo Ryan.

The Badgers went over the 100-point mark for the first time since 1995, while junior Frank Kaminsky broke the school's single game scoring record with 43 points, which is one more than the 42 put up by Michael Finley in 1994, and Ken Barnes in 1965.

The scoring outburst led to some humor in the Badgers postgame news conference. 

Ryan  says, "I said, 'Yeah Frank. Three rebounds. No assists. Come on.."

"I apologized," says Kaminsky, "No, I didn't apologize. I mean I said sorry but I didn't mean it."

Wisconsin will host Bowling Green, Thursday night.
