Fifth-ranked Badgers use balance to ease past Wildcats

MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin's basketball team is playing at such a high level that opponents often have to make difficult decisions about which players to negate. Pick a guard, and the Badgers' frontcourt will own the paint. Pick a post, and the team's guards will bury shots from the perimeter.

MADISON, Wis. -- The future of Wisconsin's football program essentially hinged on a 17-day window last month in which the Badgers' new coaching staff furiously fought for previously committed prospects, lost a boatload more and scrambled to locate any remaining diamonds in the rough to round out the Class of 2015.
