This is a bad loss, we played like dog **** down the stretch in our own building. There's no excuse for that.

Yeah, Marshall was shaking in his sneakers there.

11 minutes and 2 FG attempts for Dekker tonight. I understand he had two fouls in the 1st half, but Bo has gotta have him in there down the stretch. Especially when you can't get a freakin' bucket or free throw in 7 minutes. Marshall should have been in there way more than Trae. Berggren was completely gassed in the last 3 minutes as well.

Common theme for me that I am pissed at Bo for his rotations. This one stings, and the road gets tougher.

That free throw shooting was abysmal. Embarrassingly so.

The offense in general was disgusting for most of the second half. Just a terrible job. No one could hit a damn bucket. It spoiled a great defensive night from the team.

Dekker didn't play a lot because Bruesewitz was particularly playing well (hitting his shot, offensive boards, hustle, etc.)

With that said, I'd like to see Dekker in at the 4 when Evans is 1-11 from the field and can't hit a FT. I think Bo promised Dekker he'd never have to play the 4 or something like that (somebody can verify that), but it hurts us at times.

Exactly what I am saying in bold there. And sh*t, if that's the problem then just play Mike at the 4... Evans was a damn abortion out there while Dekker, your biggest offensive threat, has his ass on the pine.

I can understand the Evans struggles at the line, his head is a mess there. The more frustrating thing for me is all of the missed free throws by other players who should be making them. They win an important game tonight had the free throw shooting not be so horrific.

If UW were to end up a bubble team, all of those missed free throws tonight could really come back to haunt them. A pitiful 7-18 in a two point loss.

Really sucks to lose games because of FT shooting. There is really no way for the coach to correct it because it's a player mentality thing. That loss last night could end up looming large.

Worst loss ever by a #1 team? Duke is currently down 32 with 1:20 to play.

As the resident Gopher I'll give my pick for the game. The line is Wisconsin -3. The more I've thought about it, the more i'd feel pretty comfortable giving the points and taking the Badgers. Other than the dumpster fire that is now Illinois, the Gophers have not looked good on the road yet this year. Plus, Wisconsin is coming off a home loss where they had their worst shooting performance of the season, the law of averages says they shoot much better today and get the home W.

I think a Danny O'Brien led football team could outscore the Badgers basketball team. They are awful.

I have to laugh at Bo arguing that was clean when he was standing right there. He completely hacked Hollins, no question.

The amount of fouls these refs are calling in the 2nd half is nuts.

Just double Hollins ffs. He's the only one that's doing anything.

Andre Hollins is literally the only reason I have hope that we might be able to pull this out. He looks like he's in one of those zones today. Everyone else has played really poorly, especially Rodney Williams and Austin Hollins. I think Wisconsin being in bonus essentially the whole half will be the killer.

Stepping on a foot is apparently a foul on the person who got stepped on.
