For another year, Wisconsin will finish Big Ten play as one of the top four teams in the conference standings. That became a certainty on Sunday afternoon when No. 14 Wisconsin held off a late comeback from Penn State, defeating the Nittany Lions on the road with a 71-66 final, giving the Badgers their seventh consecutive…

Going into Saturday’s Big Ten clash in Madison, it was hard to tell who needed the win more: No. 24 Ohio State or No. 14 Wisconsin. Both teams entered Big Ten play with undefeated records but have since struggled in league play as the Buckeyes had dropped five out of six games entering Madison while…

In ending their three-game losing streak with a win at Purdue on Saturday afternoon No. 14 Wisconsin seemed to have turned things around, and in theory a home game against Northwestern represented the opportunity to go on a run. Unfortunately for Bo Ryan’s Badgers things didn’t work out that way, as they struggled on both…

In three consecutive losses No. 9 Wisconsin allowed opponents to shoot better than 51% from the field, with their inability to keep guards out of the lane a big reason why they struggled defensively against Indiana, Michigan and Minnesota. So entering their game at Purdue, it was clear what Bo Ryan’s team needed to do…

No. 4 Wisconsin took down No. 22 Iowa in the first marquee matchup of the Big Ten regular season, erasing an 11-point halftime deficit in the process, and all anyone wants to do is talk about Fran McCaffery’s inability to keep his emotions in check. And to a point, I get it. When a coach…

With the loss of Jared Berggren, Mike Bruesewitz, Ryan Evans from last season’s 23-win squad, Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan will rely on returnees such as guards Ben Brust and Josh Gasser and wing Sam Dekker to lead the way in 2013-14. Also of importance for Wisconsin is the arrival of a talented five-man freshman…

Bo Ryan held a “Shooting Down Cancer” event over the weekend and ended up donating more than $66,000 to cancer research.

Wisconsin fans have a tradition. In between the third and fourth quarters at football games, ‘Jump Around’ by House of Pain gets blasted through the speakers while the fans at the stadium … jump around. It’s one of those dumb, corny traditions that makes college and college athletics just so, so awesome. On Saturday, with…

Bo Ryan has been head coach at Wisconsin since 2001. His Badgers haven’t missed the NCAA tournament once during that time. They’ve never finished lower than fourth in the exceptionally loaded Big Ten. Think on that, and consider the persistence and consistency Ryan imparts to a team that changes in makeup every season. The grit…

With Ryan Evans, Jared Berggren and Mike Bruesewitz — Wisconsin’s three top rebounders from last season — graduating, Bo Ryan is looking for some added production on the frontline besides rising sophomore Sam Dekker. On Wisconsin’s trip to Canada, the Badgers may have an answer in 6-foot-11 rising junior Frank Kaminsky. As a sophomore, Kaminsky played…

Bo Ryan’s entire college coaching career has taken place in the state of Wisconsin.

I believe there is an old proverb: If it shoots like Big Ten basketball and plays defense like Big Ten basketball, it must be Big Ten basketball. Bo Ryan echoed that sentiment after his team’s 52-45 victory over Minnesota on Tuesday night. After a dismal first half shooting performance (19%), the No. 15 Badgers used…
