MADISON, Wis. The reasons for Ben Brust's dramatic increase in rebounding totals this season aren't entirely clear. Maybe it's more assertiveness as an upperclassman. Perhaps it's a measure of toughness or simply being in the right place on the court.
Brust, Wisconsin's 6-foot-1, 195-pound off-guard, doesn't know why he leads the Badgers in rebounds after three games. All he knows is that if the shot goes up and his man hasn't raced to the other end of the court for a fast break, he's going after it.
More times than not this season, Brust has managed to come up with the ball.
During Wisconsin's 73-40 victory against Cornell on Sunday night at the Kohl Center, Brust tallied 18 points and a career-high 12 rebounds in 31 minutes. It marked his second double-double in three games this season. He registered 14 points and 11 rebounds in Wisconsin's season opener against Southeastern Louisiana.

With all the news of conference expansion a little nugget of football recruiting has gotten lost in the shuffle, Wisconsin has added added two more recruits to their 2013 class. With these two additions it's going to be really interesting to see if anyone else comes on board as the numbers are getting very stretched for who they can take in this class.
The first of those...
The #22 Badgers bounced back from their tough road loss, and improved to 2-1 on the season after beating the Cornell Big Red 73-40. After an embarrassing performance on Wednesday's lost to Florida- in which the Gators shot 62% from the field- the Wisconsin defense was suffocating tonight, allowing Cornell to shoot just 26%.
It wasn't all defense though. Thanks to a threesome...
Cornell coach Bill Courtney was hoping to speed up Wisconsin's offense to force the Badgers into an uptempo game.
It worked for a little while before before the No. 22 Badgers pulled away to a 73-40 win Sunday night.
''We were hoping to speed them up a little bit because they're such an execution based team, such a good passing team, a precision team,''...

As painful as it was to sit back and watch Wisconsin lose 21-14 in overtime to hated rivals Ohio State yesterday, it was even more painful to put myself through watching it a 2nd time on the good ole DVR. After watching things over once again there's only one conclusion that you can come to: Coming so close, yet losing...
Without junior linebacker Chris Borland, Wisconsin's defense gave one of its better fourth-quarter efforts of the season. When it came to overtime, however, the Badgers, again, ran out of gas.
