Wisconsin turns to Koenig at point with Traevon Jackson hurt

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Traevon Jackson's heir apparent at point guard for No. 7 Wisconsin is getting an early taste of the responsibilities that comes with the job. No that sophomore Bronson Koenig wanted to enter the starting lineup because Jackson needs foot surgery. But it will be up to Koenig to handle the point in Big Ten play while Jackson is sidelined. The Badgers (15-2) return...

Koenig ready to take turn piloting Wisconsin's offense

MADISON, Wis. -- Bronson Koenig knew when he began his sophomore season that he would take on a bigger role with Wisconsin's basketball program. But to suddenly be thrust into the Badgers' starting point guard spot at mid-season? That's something even the most optimistic Koenig backers likely could not have seen. Yet that's exactly where Koenig finds himself after starting point...

Badgers' Koenig prides game on strong decision-making skills

MADISON, Wis. -- The way Bronson Koenig sees it, 3-to-1 is a pretty darn good assists-to-turnovers ratio for a college basketball point guard. After all, former Wisconsin point guard Jordan Taylor left the program three years ago with a ratio of 3.01, which was good enough to shatter the previous NCAA career record. That being said, Koenig has set his goals even higher. Hey, 3-to...

Beyond the Box Score: Wisconsin 68, Georgetown 65

Last night we gave a recap of the big semifinal win in the Bahamas. Today let’s dig a little deeper into that box score. As we mentioned last night, this was a great team win. It was a nice test as the previous five teams gave little resistance to the Badgers. Having to come back against a good team is what Wisconsin needed early in this season. Bronson Koenig and Duje Dukan combined...

Badgers Rally Against Georgetown; Championship Bound

Get to the next round. It’s what the Badgers needed to do, and it’s what they did. It just didn’t happen the way we have gotten used to.

Koenig lifts white over red, 57-56, in annual Badgers basketball scrimmage

An announced crowd of 8,002 witnessed the annual Badgers Red/White scrimmage at the Kohl Center on Sunday afternoon, and those in attendance were treated to a nail-biter.

Little-Known Freshman Bronson Koenig Leads Wisconsin To First Half Lead Over Kentucky In last year’s National Championship Game, Michigan reserve Spike Albrecht became an instant star, scoring 17 first half points against Louisville. This year, it looks like another little-known Big Ten freshman guard is ready to break out on the sport’s biggest stage.

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. And a shooter is only as proficient as his percentage suggests. There are, however, instances in which the numbers truly do not reflect the talent of a particular player. And there may be no better case study than with Wisconsin guard Bronson...

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 scorer...
