When Wisconsin landed quarterback Russell Wilson via transfer over the summer the Badgers instantly certified themselves as the favorites in the Big Ten. The thing is, even without Wilson Wisconsin may have been a tough team to beat over the long haul in the Big Ten. With a shot at the Big Ten championship game determined by their result in the regular season finale against Penn State, the Badgers were not only All Russell Wilson Everything, but Send Montee Ball to New York... Everything. Wisconsin smashed the visiting Nittany Lions, 45-7, to lock up the Leaders Division's spot in next week's Big Ten championship game. They will get their rematch with Michigan State, who secured the Legends Division last week with Michigan's victory over Nebraska. Read more...

Badgers don't benefit from current tournament

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. The setting was far removed from the sand, surf and prestige that accompany playing in the Maui Invitational. It paled in comparison to the equally picturesque backdrop of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off. And it certainly didn't match the feel of playing in Madison Square Garden, the so-called mecca of hoops, in the preseason National Invitational Tournament.No...

Ball, Wilson making marks on NCAA history

MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin steamrolled Penn State 45-7 on Saturday afternoon at Camp Randall Stadium in what may have been the most impressive Badgers victory of the season given the circumstances.

Gasser hopes to push Wisconsin past BYU

By KATE HEDLIN, STATS Writer Wisconsin guard Josh Gasser has made big strides in his sophomore season.

Wisconsin (5-0) is off to its best start since 2007-08 after...

No. 11 Wisconsin beats BYU for 6-0 start

Ben Brust has to think pretty far back to recall the last time he hoisted a championship trophy. ''I won a baseball championship (in middle school). It was an epic comeback,'' the sophomore guard said following Wisconsin's 73-56 victory over BYU Saturday night for the Chicago Invitational Challenge title. ''So it feels good to get that monkey off my back...

Wisconsin Continues To Roll... This Time Against A Quality Opponent

#11 Wisconsin 73, BYU 56Wisconsin had been putting up gaudy numbers all season long, though against a joke of a schedule. This BYU game represented their first true quality opponent, and their first of several, as North Carolina, Marquette and UNLV are their next three opponents. And BYU did keep this game close throughout the first half, but Wisconsin shot the lights out in the...

Badgers rake in Big Ten honors on way to Indy

The Big Ten released its postseason honors Monday evening, and Wisconsin’s hawdware haul shows why the Badgers will square off in the conference’s first-ever championship game this Saturday.

Wisconsin Continues To Roll Against Inferior Competition

#11 Wisconsin 66, Bradley 43I haven't talked about Wisconsin since the start of the regular season, and it's because they haven't played anybody yet. In fact, I'm not sure Bradley is much better than the best team they had played up to this point (Wofford), but at least Bradley presented a higher level of athleticism and raw talent. That said, Wisconsin continued...
