A standard narrative has hovered over Wisconsin's basketball program for years based, in part, on worn ideas about overachieving while being under-athletic. So it wasn't a surprise that such talk once again permeated through the Honda Center before the Badgers' Sweet 16 matchup Thursday night against Baylor.
This Baylor team had a 7-foot-1 center, Isaiah Austin, who...

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Maybe you shouldn't take a team to Roscoe's during the NCAA tournament.
Second-seeded Wisconsin extended its stay in Anaheim Friday afternoon with a 69-52 win over No. 6 Baylor. The Badgers, a technical, athletic team, excelled in all of the facets that the flashy, free-playing Bears could not.
Wisconsin (29-7) will play in the Elite Eight Saturday at the...
Unlike last week at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, Wisconsin didn't have 18,000 red-clad backers roaring in support every move made by Bo Ryan's players.
UW, which had won big games away from home all season, didn't need the home-court feel.
The No. 2-seeded Badgers turned the Honda Center into their home floor and made sixth-seeded Baylor look like an NIT team with...
In a one-way-traffic mismatch that never pointed to any remote hint of parity, it’s hard to write about the particulars of combat, such as they were.
The Baylor Bears were as flat as tortillas in Anaheim, Calif., while the Wisconsin Badgers blended crisp execution with productive thrusts of energy on the glass. Baylor’s zone defense rolled out a red carpet in the paint for Wisconsin...

I’ve never been to Texas, but I wouldn’t mind checking out Austin, they say it’s a lot like Madison, with better music. Everything allegedly, is big in the Lone Star state; the cowboy hats, the money, the hair atop the long-legged southern belles.
And apparently, for concerned Wisconsin basketball fans, the Baylor Bears are pretty big too, not just to their own fan base, but...
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Baylor guard Gary Franklin was so happy to be back home in Southern California ... he slept.

It sure seemed like they came out of nowhere.
Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty and wide receiver Antwan Goodley patiently waited for their time until they were ready to burst onto the college landscape. At this time a year ago both players knew it was finally their time to shine even though few people knew who they were. Petty learned while sitting behind fellow signal-callers Robert...
