After a dominating bounceback win against UTRGV on Dec. 6, the Badgers (6-4) will look to carry over some aspects from that game to their last non-conference road game on Friday night at Hinkle Fieldhouse against Butler. Last years’ matchup between the two teams saw an evenly contested game throughout the first 30 minutes of play, but it was the Badgers in the final 10 minutes of the game that capitalized down the stretch to get their first win of the season.

“We are, Green Bay! We are, Green Bay!” roared the jubilant Phoenix faithful in the waning seconds of Green Bay’s (2-0) 67-34 drudging of the Wisconsin Badgers (1-1). Filling up the entire section behind the Phoenix bench, the Green Bay crowd created a home-game-type atmosphere that exceeded a subdued and energy deficient Badger crowd. On the floor, the Badgers seemed to lack the energy and enthusiasm that most teams have headed into a rivalry game as UW was beaten soundly on both sides of the ball as well as in the intangible aspects of the game, such as hustle and heart. “That was a Green Bay butt-kicking,” head coach Jonathan Tsipis said. Shooting woes plagued the Badgers as they finished shooting 26.9 percent from the field and were unable to convert on any of their 16 3-point field goal attempts.
