'Team win:' Wisconsin's grit, depth shine through under pressure against NC State

Tuesday night, the Wisconsin men’s basketball team faced a home test for the first time. To make matters more difficult, NC State (0-0 ACC, 6-1 overall) applied pressure throughout the game, daring the Badgers to make them pay. The Wolfpack seemed to have an answer for every Wisconsin run. It appeared the Badgers would succumb to the pressure. On this occasion, however, they found an answer.


Ethan Happ scored a game-high 22 points and added a season-high 15 rebounds as Wisconsin fell to No. 4 Virginia.

Wisconsin Basketball 2018-2019 Schedule Released

Wisconsin’s basketball schedule for the 2018-19 season is set. The calendar was released Tuesday afternoon by the Big Ten, and it should test a young Badgers team that missed the NCAA tournament last season. Like last season, the Badgers will face some stingy non-conference opposition early in the season. Wisconsin will travel to Xavier and Marquette before Christmas, and will face Stanford and either Florida or Oklahoma in the Battle 4 Atlantis, which runs from November 21-23. The Badgers will also be tested by the Big Ten’s new 20-game schedule, a wrinkle that will make its debut this season (teams previously played 18 games against conference foes). Coach Greg Gard’s squad will begin its Big Ten slate November 30 at Iowa, before hosting Purdue and Maryland in Friday-night games.

LaVar Ball is loving his moment in the spotlight. What may have started as an honest attempt to drum up NBA interest for his son Lonzo, a projected Top 3 pick in the upcoming draft, has cascaded into the formation of his own celebrity and mass attention around his family. LaVar has said his son is better than Steph Curry, told of his desire for a $1 billion dollar shoe contract for his three sons and even appeared on ESPN’s First Take alone to spout that he could beat Michael Jordan in a one-on-one matchup.
