Wisconsin 51, UNLV 17: Rapid Reaction


Thursday’s opener was a hot and muggy one, but the weather had no effect on the Wisconsin Badgers (1-0) who absolutely dominated UNLV (0-1) by the score of 51-17. The Badgers have now won 14-straight season-openers and improve to 21-0 versus non-conference foes under Head Coach Bret Bielema.

Russell Wilson’s debut was everything we imagined it would be and more as he finished 10-for-13 for 255 yards and two touchdowns through the air. His impressive speed was also on display with 62 yards on the ground, including an electric 46 yard touchdown in the second quarter.

Jordan Taylor Explodes for 39 in Wisconsin’s Win Over Indiana


Wisconsin Badgers stand-out point guard and Cousy finalist Jordan Taylor was feeling it on Thursday night as he went off for a career-high 39 points in a 77-66 win over the Indiana Hoosiers.

If you had any doubts about Taylor being First-Team All-Big Ten, they should be gone now because Taylor’s performance showed why he’s the best guard in the Big Ten.

“Jordan just did some things that very few people, I think, can do against any teams,” said Head Coach Bo Ryan who has his #10 Badgers playing their best basketball at the perfect time in the college basketball season.

#10 Wisconsin Defeats Penn State 76-66: Rapid Reaction

The #10 Wisconsin Badgers won their 18th straight game at the Kohl Center when they defeated Penn State 76-66 on Sunday. The Badgers (20-6, 10-4) benefited tremendously from their silky-smooth big men Jon Leuer and Keaton Nankivil who chipped in 22 a piece on a combined 16-of-23 shooting from the field.

With the win, Wisconsin has now defeated all 10 of the other Big Ten teams this season, the only school to do so. The Badgers are only the seventh team to beat all other Big Ten foes in the last 10 seasons.
