Brust leading Badgers on the glass

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...

Two Commits added to Wisconsin's 2013 class

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...

Badgers' offense makes Presbyterian pay

MADISON, Wis. Presbyterian basketball coach Gregg Nibert knew his team didn't possess the size or depth to match up with Wisconsin on Tuesday night at the Kohl Center. His only option was to throw a zone at the Badgers and hope to the heavens the basketball suddenly had an allergic reaction to the nets. The Blue Hose found no such luck. Wisconsin drilled 16 of 37 3-point attempts...

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.

NLD Football Podcast - The Wisconsin preview and Big Ten expansion reaction

Wisconsin routs Cornell 73-40

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.
