    Wisconsin Badgers' Kaminsky and Ohio State Buckeyes' Thompson fight for a rebound during their NCAA game in Chicago, Illinois

    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…

    No. 3 Indiana is solidly at the top of the list of elite teams in the country, but after its 68-56 loss to No. 22 Wisconsin Saturday afternoon in the Big Ten semifinals, is it still a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament? If they’re not, the Badgers’ 12 straight wins over Indiana will…

    Traevon Jackson

    Wisconsin will have to sit and wait while a possible four-way tie takes place atop the Big Ten, but it pulled some dramatics of its own Sunday. Penn State, which has played competitively of late under coach Pat Chambers, already has an upset win over Michigan under its belt. Wisconsin’s Traevon Jackson would not let…

    Wisconsin Purdue

    Long before TCU beat Kansas, we knew that this college basketball season was not going to follow much of a logical path. Penn State’s win over Michigan only confirmed that. Sunday at the Kohl Center in Madison it might not have been an upset of the magnitude of the two aforementioned games, but Purdue ousted…

  5. No. 23 Wisconsin takes advantage of ice-cold shooting from No. 13 Ohio State in win

    Feb 17, 2013, 3:09 PM EDT


    There are two key ways to beat Ohio State: 1) Force Deshaun Thomas to be the lone offensive option and dare some other Buckeye to beat you. 2) Keep up the offensive pressure and make shots, which stops Ohio State from turning defense into offense. Happen to do both in the same game and the…

  7. Bo Ryan on win over Minnesota: ‘This is Big Ten basketball’

    Feb 29, 2012, 1:09 PM EDT


    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…

    Nov 8, 2010, 12:42 PM EDT

    OK, enough chatter. The 2010-11 college hoops season is finally here. Well, maybe a little more chatter. How about the storylines to follow this season? Call it your last-second primer. Is everyone really chasing Duke?That’s the general consensus. The AP, coaches, most every writer and even the fine folks at Basketball Prospectus expect the Blue…

  9. What Big Ten divisions might look like

    Jun 17, 2010, 12:44 AM EDT

    Like the Pac-10, the Big Ten is weighing several issues by expanding to 12 teams. Yes, a new name is one. More pressing are scheduling and division alignments. The conference athletic directors meet in about six weeks, which means we could have six weeks of chatter and arguments regarding divisions. And that’s a scary thought.…
