Kaminsky leads Badgers to OT win at Michigan

Wisconsin has had it a bit easy in Big Ten play so far, but Saturday night a trip to Michigan loomed as the Badgers’ toughest test in conference play. The No. 6-ranked Badgers were put to the test in a major way, pulling out a 69-64 win over Michigan in overtime. It may have been […]

Badgers put on clinic in blowout win over rival Hawkeyes

To say Wisconsin and Iowa basketball don’t get along is putting it mildly, and with events in recent years on and off the court this game has never been more fierce. So when No. 25 Iowa came to visit No. 5 Wisconsin in the Kohl Center you can bet the energy was palpable. It didn’t […]

Badgers bounce back with 15-point win over Huskers

Wisconsin welcomed one senior back to the lineup and started life without another as they took on the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Star center Frank Kaminsky came back and Wisconsin faced life without 81-game starting point guard Traevon Jackson, but the changes didn’t seem to bother UW too much. After some cold moments to start both halves, […]

Frank Kaminsky expected back for Nebraska game on Thursday

It is highly debatable that missing Frank Kaminsky is the sole reason why the Wisconsin Badgers lost in shocking fashion to Rutgers on Sunday. However, he would’ve been a huge help considering the cold days for most of the Badgers. Wisconsin will get him back sooner than later, as the Wisconsin State Journal is reporting […]

Beyond the Box Score: Rutgers 67, Wisconsin 62

At the beginning of the year we made predictions on the season and both Andy and I figured they’d lose at least one conference road game. Neither of us thought it’d be that one. The lack of a deep, experienced depth showed as the Badgers were stunned by Rutgers in their first ever conference trip […]

Rutgers’ hot-shooting 2nd half dooms Badgers

No Frank Kaminsky, no problem for the No. 4 Wisconsin Badgers basketball team on Sunday night against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights….except no one told the Scarlet Knights at the half. Wisconsin lost without its preseason All-American, as Kaminsky sat out with concussion-like symptoms. But, it was what Rutgers did and little to do with Kaminsky […]

Beyond the Box Score: Wisconsin 62, Purdue 55

It wasn’t pretty, but the Badgers got the job done. In a physical game that had remnants of classic Big Ten games, the Boilermakers came into Madison unafraid and almost left with a win.
