Beyond the Box Score: Wisconsin 68, California 56

I’ll be honest. I was a little worried about the game last night. Cal has an underrated team and would definitely want to prove that by knocking off the sixth ranked team in the country. Add into the mix it’s a west coast game with a late start after a weeklong layoff and the recipe for upset was brewing. And I was wrong. The Badgers took control early, and held off a couple...

MADISON, Wis. -- Well, say this about Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon: he certainly doesn't lack for confidence in his team.

Zagzebski's career ends with torn ACL, but senior DL still helping Badgers

MADISON, Wis. -- The pop inside Konrad Zagzebski's right knee was the first giveaway that something was seriously wrong.

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...
