Anemic first-half offense proves too much to overcome for Wisconsin in Battle for Atlantis title game

Last season, the Badgers went to Charlottesville to take on a top-ranked Virginia team. They left having scored only 37 points in a humbling loss to the Cavaliers. his year, an improved UW team took on UVA with a chance to win the Battle 4 Atlantis, hoping for some vengeance.

After missing NCAA Tournament, Badgers men's basketball is ready to bounce back

When the Wisconsin men’s basketball team took the floor for warm-ups before the “Red and White Scrimmage” Sunday, one of the first songs to play over the loudspeakers was Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’.” It was an apt choice for this year’s team, one that finds itself in uncharted territory. After a 2017-2018 season full of injuries, heartbreaking losses and countless ups and downs, the 2018-2019 squad returns with a chip on their shoulder.


Technology paramount for former Badger Berggren in maintaining family ties

On a typical night, Jared Berggren will come home from practice to be greeted by his wife, Cass, and their baby daughter, a welcome sight at the end of a long day. There’s nothing particularly novel about Berggren spending time with his daughter, just eight months old, and his wife of over three years. But these days, Berggren’s family time happens in a unique fashion, that cuts across transatlantic lines and couldn’t have been replicated even a decade ago. “I’m pretty much FaceTiming with my wife and daughter every morning and every night, so it gives you a little taste of home,” he said. Berggren, a Wisconsin basketball alumnus, currently plays for the Shinshu Brave Warriors of Japan, and technology has been paramount in connecting him to his family back in the United States. Berggren’s stint in Japan is not his first overseas, as he’s played in Belgium and Italy as well.

After three years with the Badgers, forward Andy Van Vliet will be transferring from Wisconsin to another Division I school, he said in a statement on Twitter Tuesday. “After meeting with the coaching staff last week, I have made the decision to leave the University of Wisconsin and pursue my academic and athletic goals at another Division I school,” he said in his statement. Van Vliet’s came to Madison from Antwerp, Belgium, to a buzz of excitement on campus that was promptly silenced by the NCAA.
