Wisconsin-Milwaukee Preview

Badgers not in the zone in ugly win over rival

MILWAUKEE -- As the final seconds ticked off the clock at the Bradley Center, Badgers guard Traevon Jackson playfully tried to steal the ball away from smiling teammate Nigel Hayes, who was dribbling out a 49-38 Wisconsin win over Marquette in the team's annual in-state rivalry game. It was just about the only defense the Badgers looked comfortable playing against Saturday. Given...

Beyond the Box Score: Wisconsin 68, Georgetown 65

Last night we gave a recap of the big semifinal win in the Bahamas. Today let’s dig a little deeper into that box score. As we mentioned last night, this was a great team win. It was a nice test as the previous five teams gave little resistance to the Badgers. Having to come back against a good team is what Wisconsin needed early in this season.

Big Ten Basketball Preview: #1 Wisconsin Badgers

I truly hate to say this, you know I do, but the Badgers are by far the best team in the conference and it isn't particularly close.  I just wrote about how Ohio State has all that crazy talent, but the Badgers were an excellent team last year and have basically the entire squad back.  This is usually where I might bash them for not having that much talent on paper and stuff, but...

Badgers PG Traevon Jackson battle-tested, stronger heading into senior season

MADISON, Wis. -- Traevon Jackson never has been a player that lacked for confidence. If that were the case, he wouldn't have survived the scathing criticism that comes his way for playing point guard at a Big Ten power like Wisconsin. Jackson has felt that cynicism from fans for two years now as the Badgers' primary ball handler, sometimes even at home games. But as he prepares for...

What the hill? Running with Wisconsin hoopsters humiliating, humbling experience

MADISON, Wis. -- On a cool, breezy and sun-splashed Monday afternoon, I arrived at Elver Park intent on concurring one of the most famous hills this city has to offer -- 125 feet of steep intimidation that has made men bigger and more athletic than me weak at the knees. The goal was to run alongside Wisconsin's men's basketball team for 12 hills as it continued a longstanding tradition...

Wisconsin Basketball: Is Traevon Jackson the right fit at point guard?

With Jackson at the helm, Wisconsin reached it’s first Final Four since 2000. That said, Jackson has also provided fans with plenty face-palms. So many, that dare I say deserves a benching?

The college basketball season has barely been polished off, and already there is talk looking ahead to 2014-15.

The 2013-14 Wisconsin Badgers Won’t Soon Be Forgotten

When Traevon Jackson’s attempt at a game-winning shot rattled out as time expired, the Wisconsin Badgers’ magical NCAA tournament run came to a bitter end.

Anybody who'd watched Wisconsin over the past decade or so knew the culture already was pretty darn good. But Jackson, in particular, was willing...
