Wisconsin falls flat against Green Bay in 67-34 defeat

“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.

Maryland, Ohio frontrunners in deep Big Ten

In a rugged and competitive Big Ten conference last season, there was a major difference between regular season co-champions, Ohio State and Maryland, and conference bottom feeders, Illinois, Wisconsin, Rutgers and Nebraska. But despite the major differences between first and last, the Big Ten was one of the deepest conferences in the country.


Young leads UW past Rutgers into second day of Big Ten Tournament

The No. 11 seed Badgers opened up Big Ten Tournament play against the No. 14 seed Rutgers, and the two were tied 6-6 with 3:16 left in the first quarter. The game was never tied again, as the Badgers (3-13 Big Ten, 9-21 overall) went on to the win the first quarter 14-6, the first half 27-13, and ultimately the game 61-55 against the Scarlet Knights (3-12, 6-24). “We've talked a lot as a team since the game ended at Iowa on Sunday night about doing something that nobody in the program currently had done: win a first round game,” head coach Jonathan Tsipis told Redshirt senior forward Avyanna Young led her young squad with 20 points, and also added four rebounds and three assists. While Young did pour in almost a third of her team’s points, Rutgers’ Shrita Parker did her best to keep her team afloat with 24 points in the game.
