It’s almost tournament time, but it’s still yet to be determined if the Badgers will be invited to the dance. If that game ends in a win, which it should’ve… twice, the Badgers would be firmly locked into the tournament even with a rough conference performance. Automatic bidThe most straightforward way that the Badgers get into the tournament is to make a run and win the Big Ten tourney. Unfortunately, the Big Ten tournament hasn’t been too friendly to Greg Gard’s Wisconsin teams. Take care of business in Ann Arbor on Sunday, play the best 40-minutes of the year at home versus Purdue, win the Border-Battle plus a conference tournament game or two.
The Wisconsin Badgers held another closed practice to the media on Wednesday ahead of their first exhibition game of the season against UW-Eau Claire this weekend. The 2.5-hour practice involved a series of drills, as well as five-on-five action for the first time in front of the media. Here are my notes and observations from practice No. Ball movementThe Badgers put an emphasis on quick ball movement early in practice, utilizing a forward at the top of the key to facilitating the offense, while the perimeter guys made quick passes and cut to the basket. If Wisconsin can operate with quick ball movement, they’ll find easier shots as backdoor cutters were consistently open on Wednesday, although they weren’t always found with passes.4 months ago Bucky's 5th Quarter

It’s an opportunity that I’ve thought about before, obviously, but I’m excited to run out that tunnel with our guys and go battle. I’m going to tell them how it is. If you’re going to be stubborn, they’re going to attack and try to create TFLs and get you behind the sticks.5 months ago Bucky's 5th Quarter
