Badger Basketball: This Year and Last

With the break this week, we figured, why not look back to last year at this point in the season and see how it matches up with this year. Obviously last year there wasn’t the hype there was this year, but that team also was undefeated heading into the finals break. We’ll start with the […]

VIDEO: Nigel Hayes videobombs Bo’s postgame interview

Nigel Hayes is a character to say the least, and if you didn’t know by now then Hayes’ antics after the game on Saturday should be all you need to know. With Bo Ryan being interviewed on BTN following the 86-43 win Hayes went all sorts of videobomb on his head coach…and it was GLORIOUS.

Badgers knock out Nicholls early in 86-43 win

Nicholls came in to this game overmatched on paper, and it took just three minutes to figure out it was overmatched on the court as well. No. 5 Wisconsin took a 2-0 lead and never looked back, winning 86-43, and grabbing its 10th win of the season (10-1). It was just what the doctor ordered […]

Beyond the Box Score: Wisconsin 93, Milwaukee 54

I’ll be honest. There isn’t a whole lot to talk about in last night’s game. It was a blowout, and it was needed after the Andersen news earlier in the day. With that said, here’s a couple things that stood out. The Badgers had ten steals and only committed four turnovers. The past couple games, […]

No. 2 Wisconsin traveled East on I-94 looking to rebound from it’s loss to Duke on Wednesday night.

Beyond the Box Score: Duke 80, Wisconsin 70

The game sure lived up to its billing. Too bad it wasn’t the result we were looking for. The 4th ranked Duke Blue Devils came into Madison and gave the 2nd ranked Badgers their first loss of the young season. Even with the loss, the B1G still won the ACC/B1G Challenge 8-6. Let’s jump into […]
