Fresh off its first practice preparing for top-seed Syracuse, Wisconsin's two seniors, Jordan Taylor and Rob Wilson, along with junior guard Josh Gasser and sophomore guard Ben Brust address the media about the challenges the Orange bring.

Why is Wisconsin’s Jordan Taylor Still Underrated?

Why is Wisconsin’s Jordan Taylor Still Underrated? He’s not the flashiest point guard in the country but he may be the most effective. Wisconsin’s Jordan Taylor is the most underrated point guard in the country. Opposing coaches sure know all too well about Mr. Taylor. In a tight game against Vanderbilt, it was Taylor’s steady hand that led the Badgers into the Sweet 16...

Extra effort pays off for Evans at Wisconsin

Ryan Evans did something unexpected last weekend in Albuquerque, N.M. He got off to a fast start. Wisconsins junior forward hit his first four shots to spark the Badgers to an early lead in a 73-49 win over Montana in their opening game of the NCAA Tournament on Thursday at The Pit. He followed that up by hitting his first four shots Saturday against Vanderbilt to reach double...

Badgers' Ryan appreciates overachieving club

MADISON, Wis. Bo Ryan tries to remain insulated from peripheral discussion about his Wisconsin basketball team, but he's perceptive enough to understand the pulse of a fan base. When the season began in October, the Badgers' coach heard from folks who thought this year's team might stink like a pigpen. So what, they said, if Wisconsin was ranked No. 15 in the preseason...

Videos: Badgers Headed Back to the Sweet 16

Wow, what a great opening weekend. The Badgers advance to the Sweet 16 in consecutive seasons for the first time in program history. Here's a factoid for you - only 3 other teams (Louisville, NC State, and Ohio) in the Sweet 16 beat a higher seeded team than the Badgers (#5 Vandy) to get to the second weekend. UW earned its spot. Let's get on to some video fun with Mike Lucas...

QB O'Brien confirms visit to the Badgers

MADISON - They are eight words that Wisconsin fans are anxious to hear and put some clarity to the level of interest former Maryland quarterback Danny O'Brien has with the University of Wisconsin. "Yes, I will be visiting this coming weekend," said O'Brien in a message to Badger Nation. The 6-3, 215-pound quarterback formally a three-star QB ranked No.58 in the...

Spring Football - Wide Receivers

Wide outs were an integral part of the Wisconsin offense in 2011. Even with Montee Ball pounding the rock for a record setting 39 touchdowns, WRs came up with big plays in big games, as well as a few big errors (see Abbrederis Rose Bowl fumble). While Russell Wilson was at the helm, receivers saw production not often witnessed on the Camp Randall gridiron. Nick Toon, UWs star receiver...

Spring Football - Secondary

If there is one position group that is a mixed bag heading into Spring camp it's the Secondary for Wisconsin.  For the most part the starters are quite experienced, but what's behind them is a total unknown as they are very young and lacking in game experience.  Wisconsin finds itself having to replace Aaron Henry at Safety and Antonio Fenelus at Cornerback so this group...

Badgers Sweet 16 Bound

Badger nation was sweating, but Wisconsin pulled out a 60-57 over Vanderbilt to advance to the Sweet 16 for the second straight year. The #4 seed Badgers will face the #1 seed Syracuse Orange in the West regional semi-finals.  The Badgers were led in scoring by Jordan Taylor with 15, Jared Berggren with 12, and Ben Brust and Ryan Evans with 11. A big key for the Badgers was their...

Wisconsin Badgers clip the Commodores for a trip to the Sweet 16 (Rapid Reaction)

              Thanks to some pesky defense against the #5 Vanderbilt Commodores, the #4 Wisconsin Badgers are Boston bound for their second trip to the Sweet 16 in the last two years. Threes were flying from everywhere with the Badgers shooting a total of 33 shots from beyond the arc. They connected on ten of them, including three a-piece for guards Ben Brust and Jordan Taylor...
