Men's Basketball

If Wisconsin wants to make a deep tournament run, they will have to take down college basketball Goliaths along the way. 

One more shining moment? Wisconsin Badgers' seniors take final shot at March Madness run

Vitto Brown almost never wears his two Final Four rings. He knows where they are—in a mural of his athletic achievements at his house in Bowling Green, Ohio—but the rings, for now, are just museum relics on display for visitors of the Brown house to marvel at. Over the past two years, Brown—who still uses his 2014 Final Four backpack—has come to fully appreciate UW’s 2014 and 2015 deep tournament runs.


NCAA Tournament preview: Revisiting the Badgers' brightest moments from a rollercoaster season of ups and downs

Happ goes off at the Garden: Under the bright lights of Madison Square Garden, redshirt sophomore Ethan Happ walked onto one of the most hallowed floors in all of basketball and took center stage, delivering his best performance of the season. In Wisconsin’s 61-54 overtime victory over Rutgers, Happ carried the load on both ends, torching the Scarlet Knights for a career-high 32 points while also anchoring the defense with two blocks. On a night when scoring woes nearly cost Wisconsin the game, it was up to Happ to keep his team alive.

Wisconsin Badgers fall apart in second half as Michigan Wolverines cap improbable run with Big Ten title

WASHINGTON — It was a long night on the offensive end for the No. 24 Badgers (12-6 Big Ten, 25-9 overall) Sunday at the Verizon Center as they couldn’t string enough successful possessions together to knock off Michigan (10-8, 24-11) 71-56 and claim the Big Ten Tournament crown. Wisconsin fell behind early, 30-20, but clawed back into the game to close the half.

Wisconsin seeking revenge in Big Ten semifinal matchup with Northwestern Wildcats

WASHINGTON — In the games leading up to No. 24 Wisconsin’s (12-6 Big Ten, 24-8 overall) 66-59 loss to Northwestern (10-8, 23-10) in mid-February, the Badgers had been playing with fire. While UW had won eight games in a row, in its wins over Nebraska, Indiana, Illinois and Rutgers, Wisconsin pulled out victories not because of its offense, but in spite of it. Against the Wildcats, the Badgers finally got burned.
