Ben Brust, the fourth-leading scorer for the University of Wisconsin men's basketball team, has entered the game at Penn State despite being too sick to participate in Tuesday morning's shootaround.
Brust checked in with 14 minutes, 46 seconds left in the first half.
The sophomore guard, the team's sixth man, arrived at Bryce Jordan Center with the team about 75 minutes before the start of the game, and a UW spokesman said he would be a gametime decision.
Brust has appeared in all 23 games for the No. 19 Badgers (17-5, 11-2 Big Ten). He entered the night averaging 9.7 points with a team-high 44 3-pointers. Twice this season, Brust has tied a school record by making seven 3-pointers in a game.
If Brust is unable to play his usual number of minute, that could lead to an expanded role for senior swingman Rob Wilson and freshman guard Traevon Jackson against the Nittany Lions (10-12, 2-7).
Wilson is averaging 9.7 minutes and 2.5 points per game.
Jackson is averaging 7.4 minutes and 1.6 points in 12 games this season. He's played a total of 12 minutes since Big Ten play started in late December.
