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...

With Jackson out, backup Showalter looks to make most of more minutes

MADISON, Wis. -- Zak Showalter approached preseason practices in October with the same zest and energy he always had for Wisconsin's basketball team. Except this year, there seemed to be a tangible carrot dangling in front of the redshirt sophomore -- the opportunity for playing time as the fourth guard in Badgers coach Bo Ryan's rotation. When Showalter edged Jordan Hill for that...

Koenig calmly leads Wisconsin past Nebraska

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.

Koenig ready to take turn piloting Wisconsin's offense

MADISON, Wis. -- Bronson Koenig knew when he began his sophomore season that he would take on a bigger role with Wisconsin's basketball program. But to suddenly be thrust into the Badgers' starting point guard spot at mid-season? That's something even the most optimistic Koenig backers likely could not have seen.
