TRAEVON JACKSON NEWS

Ryan says Jackson could be out two more weeks

MADISON, Wis. -- Traevon Jackson said with certainty last week that he would return from injury in time for Wisconsin's senior day against Michigan State on Sunday. Doctors, however, never medically cleared Jackson, and he instead watched the game from the bench in street clothes. Now, it appears Jackson could be sidelined even longer. Badgers coach Bo Ryan said Monday on the Big...

Bracketology and the Debate for the Last Top Seed: Wisconsin vs. Gonzaga

It’s that time of year. “Seed lines” become a part of the national discussion… and unlike Great Britain, such a term has nothing to do with the Royal Family or its babies. We’re talking brackets, and no seed line is more scrutinized than the top one. Just exactly which teams are in line to get the four No. 1 seeds? Kentucky and Virginia are set, and Kansas is falling off...

Traevon Jackson, who suffered a foot injury during a January 11th game at Rutgers, is inching closer and closer to returning to the Badgers’ lineup. Jackson’s replacement, Sophomore Bronson Koenig, has done more than enough to warrant consideration to retain the starting position even after Jackson returns from his injury.

Badgers have point guard conundrum once Jackson returns

MADISON, Wis. -- Penn State coach Patrick Chambers waxed poetic this week about Wisconsin guard Traevon Jackson, calling him "a Nittany Lion killer over his career" and suggesting his leadership in the Big Ten simply was unmatched by anybody. Chambers certainly would know, having watched Jackson bury a buzzer-beating game winner against his team two years ago from 25 feet away at...

Andy Bottoms NCAA Tournament Bracket Projections for February 10, 2015

Screencap credit: DeadspinSelection Sunday is less than five weeks away. And while teams on the top two seed lines seem to have separated themselves from the rest of the pack, I expect the rest of the season to feature plenty of movement for the last couple #1 seeds. At this point, Kentucky is a lock and Virginia is pretty close even with the recent injury to Justin Anderson. One...

Notebook: Badgers enjoy rare breather in middle of Big Ten slate

MADISON, Wis. -- During the lengthy grind of the Big Ten men's basketball schedule, there are few opportunities for breathers. So when they arrive, it's best to take advantage as much as possible. That's the scenario Wisconsin faces early this week. UW (18-2, 5-1) does not play a game for a span of seven days until squaring off at Iowa (13-7, 4-3) on Saturday. It marks the Badgers...

MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin's basketball team took the floor Thursday night with a small measure of uncertainty for a unit considered to be a national title contender.
