Found October 28, 2013 on The Sports Bank:
Welcome to The Sports Bank’s fourth annual college basketball season preview series where we break 111 teams in the 111 days leading up to the opening tip-off of the 2013-2014 season.  We will rank the 84 power conference teams (including the new Big East and American Athletic Conferences) and top 27 mid-majors in reverse power ranking order.  We’ll break down rosters, transfers, incoming freshmen, non-conference schedules, and pick a player to watch for each team. Another season, another year in which Bo Ryan will have his Wisconsin Badgers in the thick of the Big Ten race.  Unlike last season when UW relied on their experienced frontcourt, the strength of this season’s team comes with their talented guards. WISCONSIN BADGERS Last Season: T-4th, 12-6 in Big 10, 23-12 overall Predicted Big Ten Finish: 4th Projected Depth Chart C: Frank Kaminsky (Jr)/Evan Anderson (Jr) F: Sam Dekker (So)/Zach Bohannon (Sr)/Nigel Hayes (Fr)/Vitto Brown (Fr)/Duje Dukan (Jr) SG: Ben Brust (Jr)/Riley Dea...

In some respects, however, Dukan is thankful things...

Gard borthers set to face off when Badgers host UW-Platteville

MADISON, Wis. -- Greg Gard carried a clipboard and a red folder labeled "UW-Platteville" under his arm Monday inside the Kohl Center.

Gordon, Borland named award semifinalists

You must be doing something right as a team when you get an offensive and defensive player named semifinalists for postseason awards.  That's exactly what happened on Tuesday as Melvin Gordon was named to the Maxwell Award semifinalist list and Chris Borland was named a semifinalist for the Bednarik award.  Both of those awards happen to be pretty major, with the Maxwell...

Badgers ready for Big Ten push after bye

Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen said an opportune bye week has allowed his players to get their legs back as the 22nd-ranked Badgers renew their regional rivalry at Iowa - with the concern being one leg in particular. The week off allowed standout senior linebacker Chris Borland to rest his strained right hamstring, injured two weeks ago in a 56-32 victory over Illinois. Borland is...
