PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) — The Latest on the second day at the Battle 4 Atlantis (all times local):

3:25 p.m.

D'Mitrik Trice set career highs with 25 points and a tournament-record seven 3-pointers to help No. 25 Wisconsin beat Oklahoma 78-58 in Thursday's semifinals at 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. But he finally missed a 3 less than a minute later to finish at 7 for 8.

That was also the first missed 3 after halftime for the Badgers (5-0), who made 8 of 9 after halftime and 14 of 22 for the game. Wisconsin shot 59 percent in the second half, using a 10-0 run to blow the game open and earn a trip in Friday's championship game.

Christian James scored 18 points for the Sooners (4-1), who shot 47 percent but couldn't slow the Badgers' second-half roll.

The Badgers advanced by beating Stanford and will play in Thursday's first semifinal against Oklahoma, which beat Florida in Wednesday's first round.

The next semifinal will feature the Cavaliers against Dayton.

The consolation bracket will feature a power-conference matchup between Florida of the Southeastern Conference and Stanford of the Pac-12. There's also a game between Butler and Middle Tennessee.
