Killer combo: Koenig, Hayes help propel Wisconsin past Minnesota

INDIANAPOLIS -- Sam Dekker was lounging on a chair in front of his locker late Friday night, when he turned to teammate Bronson Koenig with what seemed as if it might be a semi-serious question.

Badgers remain confident in Koenig despite shooting woes

MADISON, Wis. -- It's been said before that statistics don't lie. A basketball team, for example, is only as good as its record indicates.

Badgers freshman point guard Koenig learning to lead, look for own shot

MADISON, Wis. -- Tremendous court vision and passing ability are usually among the first things that come to mind when describing Bronson Koenig's basketball talents. He is considered a pass-first point guard whose job is to create shot attempts for teammates, limit his own mistakes and play solid defense for Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan. In other words, he is a playmaker first, a...

Freshman Bronson Koenig eager to see first collegiate action vs. St. John's

MADISON, Wis. -- The Bronson Koenig during Wisconsin's open gyms this summer did not resemble the Bronson Koenig you read about in newspapers or saw in person during his high school days. That is to say, he wasn't nearly as good. For a player of Koenig's caliber -- all-state, Associated Press Player of the Year -- this was particularly frustrating as he tried to make...
