Beyond the Box Score: Wisconsin 68, Georgetown 65

Last night we gave a recap of the big semifinal win in the Bahamas. Today let’s dig a little deeper into that box score. As we mentioned last night, this was a great team win. It was a nice test as the previous five teams gave little resistance to the Badgers. Having to come back […]

Badgers Rally Against Georgetown; Championship Bound

Get to the next round. It’s what the Badgers needed to do, and it’s what they did. It just didn’t happen the way we have gotten used to.

The Battle 4 Atlantis was supposed to be one of the biggest and baddest of the non-conference tournaments this season.

Big Ten Basketball Week Preview: November 17-23

It’s early season tournament time in college basketball which is a lot of fun for fans, but makes my job predicting the games more difficult.

Beyond the Box Score: Wisconsin 84, Green Bay 60

So I’m glad Andy did such a great job with the postgame because I had the flu yesterday and while the game was on, deep analysis wasn’t going to be my forte. The first half ran as I was expecting, a close game with Sykes getting his, but the foul trouble was just too much. […]


Badgers 84, Green Bay 60: Wisconsin burns Phoenix with size advantage

Green Bay wasn’t going to be intimidated going up against the Badgers size advantage, but said advantage seemed to be the biggest difference maker after all. Wisconsin used its size to help bang its way to an 84-60 win, improving to 3-0 on the young season. Wisconsin knew coming in it had an advantage over […]

Wisconsin’s magical run to the 2014 Final Four was one of the great story lines of the NCAA tournament. Bo Ryan and the Badgers are back for more in the 2014-15 season and a repeat trip to the Final Four is not out of the question. Frank Kaminsky, who was the West Regional’s Most Outstanding […]

Beyond the Box Score: Wisconsin 62, Northern Kentucky 31

Not a bad start to the season. Andy went into depth on the game last night, so I’m going to delve in a little deeper quick before the big football game this afternoon. Let’s jump into the box score. Twice the Badgers held Northern Kentucky scoreless for five-minute spans. The first of these came at […]

Opening night is finally here. Never has there been as much hype as there is this season. Last year at this time Frank Kaminsky was an alright big guy and we were worried about the Badgers knocking off an average St. John’s team. Now Kaminsky is a cult figure and we feel like we can […]
