On the night that Frank Kaminsky’s No. 44 jersey was raised in the rafters, it seemed fitting that the first team to score 44 points would emerge victorious. It took nearly 36 minutes for a team to break that plateau, but when Wisconsin (5-10 Big Ten, 12-16 overall) scored its 44th and 45th points of the game on a pair of free throws by freshman guard Brad Davison, the Kohl Center crowd erupted.

Throughout both the 2013-’14 and 2014-’15 Wisconsin men’s basketball seasons, a Nintendo 64 video game console almost always accompanied UW on its road trips. Large swaths of players would gather in someone’s hotel room for hours at a time as heated battles were conducted.
After No. 20 Michigan’s (9-5 Big Ten, 20-7 overall) win over Wisconsin (4-10, 11-16), Wolverine head coach John Beilein said that one of, if not the most important point of his team’s defensive gameplan was to prevent Badger redshirt junior forward Ethan Happ from scoring 40 points.
For a brief stretch in Wisconsin’s (4-10 Big Ten, 11-16 overall) 83-72 loss to No. 20 Michigan (9-5, 20-7), the Kohl Center faithful rose to its feet in excitement. A 12-0 run that lasted just under five minutes midway through the second half sent an arena dying for something to cheer about into euphoria.
As the Wisconsin men’s basketball team took to the road Thursday night in the midst of a season-long five-game losing streak, the Badgers (4-9 Big Ten, 11-15 overall) put their faith in the steady hands of Ethan Happ as they dispatched Illinois (3-9, 12-13) 78-69.
On December 9, 2017, T.J. Schlundt experienced his first real taste of college basketball. The redshirt junior guard was thrust into Wisconsin’s rotation on short notice, as UW was unexpectedly without both Kobe King and D’Mitrik Trice for its matchup with in-state rival Marquette. It was on that day that Schlundt chased Golden Eagle guards Andrew Rowsey and Markus Howard around for 13 minutes as MU’s prolific backcourt hung 47 points on a depleted Badger roster.
On a recent Friday night, Aaron Moesch and Brad Davison drove to James Madison Memorial High School to see the high school’s performance of its school play, Curtains. The duo was meeting their shared-pastor, Matt Metzger of Blackhawk Church and Metzger’s family, including both his and his wife’s parents, who were all in town to see the pastor’s daughters in the performance.
Less than an hour after Wisconsin (3-9 Big Ten, 10-15 overall) dropped its third game of the week, injured sophomore point guard D’Mitrik Trice took to Twitter with a message for UW’s fan base. “Stick with us!” he wrote following the Badgers’ 68-63 loss to Maryland.
Having lost seven of eight games — four of which were double-digit losses — the Wisconsin men’s basketball team (3-8 Big Ten, 10-14 overall) heads to College Park, Md., Sunday staring down the barrel of its worst nine-game stretch in 20 years. There, the Terrapins (4-7, 15-9) look ready to feast on a struggling Badger team.
Much has been made this season of the Wisconsin men’s basketball team’s inability to close games.
Coming out of the under-16 media timeout at the 15:46 minute mark of the first half, the Rolling Stone’s hit song “Start Me Up” blared over the loudspeaker. The Badgers trailed 14-1 at the time; perhaps they were in need of some reminding that the game had begun nearly five minutes earlier.
Less than ten minutes after addressing the media following Wisconsin’s (3-7 Big Ten, 10-13 overall) 74-63 loss to Nebraska (8-4, 17-8), a visibly emotional Ethan Happ was back on the Kohl Center floor putting up free throws.
Ethan Happ knew the Badgers needed a change if they wanted to turn their season around.

Yet again early in a conference game, the Wisconsin Badgers (3-6 Big Ten, 10-12 overall) found themselves trailing by double-digits.

The easiest six-game stretch in the Wisconsin men’s basketball team’s (3-5 Big Ten, 10-11 overall) conference schedule is over. Having just one opponent ranked in the KenPom top 50, the Badgers’ last half dozen games were a relative cakewalk compared to what’s coming next. The meat of their schedule opens Friday night in East Lansing, Mich., against No. 6 Michigan State (6-2, 18-3).
Three minutes and 42 seconds into Wisconsin’s (3-5 Big Ten, 10-11 overall) matchup with Iowa (2-7, 11-11) Tuesday night, the Badgers had taken nine shots. They had zero points to show for it. That about sums up the night UW had, getting tossed around by the Big Ten’s second worst team, 85-67.
While the Wisconsin Badgers (3-4 Big Ten, 10-10 overall) have struggled to play consistent basketball throughout the first twenty games of their season, UW’s struggles pale in comparison to its next opponent’s.
