Badgers drop UW-River Falls by a landslide

Filling the production void left on offense by the departure of Frank Kaminsky and Sam Dekker will be one of the biggest challenges facing a young Wisconsin squad this season. A significant amount of that responsibility falls on the shoulders of redshirt freshman forward Ethan Happ, who many are expecting to have a breakout year for the Badgers. His performance Wednesday night certainly won’t cause anyone to temper their lofty expectations for the redshirt freshman. Happ recorded a double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds, and six different players reached double-digit scoring as No. 17 Wisconsin rolled to a 101-45 exhibition win over Division-III UW-River Falls at the Kohl Center. Happ in particular impressed for the Badgers, scoring his 16 points on 7-of-9 shooting from the field in 19 minutes of game action.

Life after Kaminsky could be rough for Wisconsin

Frank Kaminsky was the best player in Wisconsin basketball history. By the time he left for the NBA, he ranked ninth all-time in total points, eighth in field goals, seventh in field-goal percentage, first in blocks, 11th in rebounds and, believe it or not, 11th in assist-to-turnover ratio. All this despite playing nearly 500 fewer minutes than anyone in the top 10. He played just 8.9 minutes per game in his first two seasons with the Badgers.

Bo Ryan’s stunt double sick of taking pictures with fans

Jack Doherty, stunt double for UW basketball coach Bo Ryan, has reportedly grown sick and tired of posing for pictures with Badger fans. He originally enjoyed his position but has since felt it to be more of a burden than a boon, particularly the photo op aspect of the job. “I really don’t mind all of the basketball-related stuff,” Doherty said.

Badgers etch mark in Kentucky's loss column

Wisconsin is not a college basketball blue-blood. As hard as it may be for Badger fans to hear, UW just doesn’t have the 50 or more years of success that teams like Kansas and UNC have enjoyed. However, the lack of elite status is one of the many things that made Wisconsin’s victory over Kentucky last season that much better.
