For the first time since Feb. 1, Wisconsin (12-6 Big Ten, 25-6 overall) lost. This one should certainly leave a bad taste in the Badgers’ mouth as the Big Ten tournament starts up.

Nebraska is fourth in the Big Ten standings. The weird part: It’s in basketball.
When the lights dim in the Kohl Center Wednesday night, there will be one senior whose achievements the whole crowd will feel lucky to remember: Ben Brust.
It is done. The Wichita State Shockers finished their regular season Sunday and are undefeated. I don’t care what conference you’re in, that’s an incredible achievement. But not many people agree with that statement.
With the regular season coming to a close, the possible season outcomes for Wisconsin (10-5 Big Ten, 23-5 overall) have begun to tighten up. The No. 3 Badgers lie two games back from conference leader Michigan, with Michigan State in between, and hold a 1.5-game lead over No. 4 Ohio State.
By halftime, it seemed like Wisconsin had tempted fate by giving the student section ‘three’ signs. The Badgers (10-5 Big Ten, 23-5 overall) were down 29-19 to a reeling Indiana team (5-9, 15-12) and had shot an anemic 1-for-10 from deep.
Here’s the thing about the vast majority of bad decisions in sports: They are at least partially explainable.
While not quite as shiny as their 16-0 undefeated start, the Badgers (8-5 Big Ten, 21-5 overall) will be traveling to Iowa City on quite a hot streak.
The National Basketball Association All-Star game is boring.

'The Daily Show' is written by some of the smartest people in television. It’s a show I normally love. Which makes Monday night’s piece on Russian history puzzling. No, wait, puzzling isn’t the right word. More like simply infuriating.
Marcus Smart is not a happy camper. His Oklahoma State team has pulled “a Wisconsin” by losing five of their last six games and now, he’s in some very hot water over his actions at Texas Tech.
Traevon Jackson has been a controversial player for the Badgers (6-5 Big Ten, 19-5 overall). He’s known as “Mr. Clutch” for making multiple game-winners, but also as a player who makes multiple mistakes that can cost his team. Badger fans saw both sides of that today, and it was infuriating at first, but was then followed by exhilaration.
Coachingsearch.com reported yesterday that the Badgers’ running backs coach, Thomas Hammock, has accepted the same position with the National Football League’s Baltimore Ravens.
If I told you a free falling team lost a much needed game because of a complete inability to generate late stops on defense, you probably would have guessed it was the previously top-five Badgers (5-5 Big Ten, 18-5 overall).
A week ago, shocking news broke that football players from Northwestern University were attempting to unionize with the National College Players Association (NCPA).
There’s really no way to cut it, the Wisconsin men’s basketball team’s (4-3 Big Ten, 17-3 overall) last meeting with Northwestern (3-5, 10-11) was a total beatdown.
Haven’t been watching college basketball all year? Want to get back into it before March Madness comes around? Here’s where the season stands so far and its big stories.
