Badgers aim to build momentum for grand appearance in Big Dance

MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin guard Josh Gasser says there's no denying he is playing on the most talented basketball team in his career. The entire frontcourt -- Frank Kaminsky, Sam Dekker and Nigel Hayes -- has a future in the NBA. And the Badgers are off to one of their best starts in the history of the program. "We just play well," Gasser said. "We come out focused every game. Our...

Don't tell Gasser, but Badgers deserve NCAA tourney top seed

MADISON, Wis. -- Josh Gasser won't like what's about to be written.

Paul Bunyan’s axe isn’t up for grabs tonight. Instead is a ticket for round three with a whole lot of incentives. On Minnesota’s angle, defeat would mean NIT. A consolation for coming a few wins shy of NCAA tournament worthiness. A win however, fulfills the Gophers dreams of joining the Big Dance. As for Bo Ryan’s Badgers, a win means momentum. Expectations are high; as they...

Gasser's All-Big Ten honor sweeter after long road to ACL recovery

Josh Gasser never has been one to fret about individual accolades. What's good for the basketball team, he'll note, is good for him. So pardon Gasser for not waiting by the television with bated breath during the Big Ten's season-ending awards announcements Monday night. Gasser had a class to attend. And even if he hadn't, the University of Wisconsin redshirt junior may well have...
