Today basically showed how good the Badgers are when they shoot well. Undefeated when shooting over 45%, which isn't even scorching. I realize this team is limited offensively, but they'll be in every game, hopefully this can be the year they get hot in the tourney from 3.

I just wish everyone could enjoy the ride. I see both sides believe me. Seed and situation never concern me. It's in or out. That's all

I'll admit that I questioned them making the tourney this, but ever since the start of big ten play they seem like a different team.

I feel like with the parity in college bball atm, UW or MU can easily make a run. I think both teams can beat any team they face, especially UW.

Pretty much everything to do with his vast improvement offensively is that Vander can finally hit jumpers consistently, even with his his still funky shooting mechanics. I'll admit to being surprised by just how much more his jumper is falling because i seriously questioned whether he'd ever be a consistent scorer unless he made a big change to those shooting mechanics. He always had been unselfish offensively, a solid passer, good at slashing the paint, and a quality defender.

I really gotta hand it to both Buzz and Bo Ryan. Going into the season and after watching early games for each team, for the first time in awhile, i had real doubts as to whether either team would make the big dance. Yet, here Marquette sits 18-6 and 9-3 in conference play, while Wisconsin is 18-8/9-4. Each has at least some shot of winning their conference, but odds being against it.

Given i'm old enough to remember both programs being in extended stretches of irrelevancy, it's so nice to now see both being run by coaches that each year are a near lock to put teams on the floor which win 20 plus games and make the NCAA Tournament. Not only that, both coaches have a nice recruiting class coming in next year.

Good to see Amadeo Della Valle get some PT for Ohio State today. That makes 5 true freshman from Findlay Prep last year getting time this year in D1: Anthony Bennett (UNLV) Brandon Ashley (Arizona) Dominic Artis (Oregon) Winston Shephard (San DIego St). And the straw that stirred their drink last year is still playing at Findlay, PG Nigel Williams-Goss. He's a solid player to keep an eye on in the future. Not a top of the draft guy but should be decent.

Both have gone to back-to-back Sweet 16's too. I wouldn't be surprised if they each made it 3 trips in a row this year.

That was one of the most intense college basketball games I've ever seen.

I think that Oladipo guy is going in the top 5. He's like Wade was at MU.

Oladipo should go #1 in the draft. Whoever passes him up is gonna have some serious Sam Bowie Syndrome in a few years.

This is pretty awesome and I'm almost positive that's Scott Van Pelt in front of the guys in suits.

The quote supporting that Geno touching her buttox is great. Just rambling about how she likes to date Italian guys or something.

But after the game, one of the paper's reporters asked Auriemma about it. Because the photo just looks so ... odd. This was Auriemma's explanation:

"She was staring at my butt and she was commenting on it and I said, ‘Really? How about yours?' and she went, `Yeah, look at it,' and I went (slap), I'll teach you a lesson,'' Auriemma said, jokingly. `And then she started talking about how she only dated Italians her whole life and that she wanted me to set her up with some Italians and I said `The Italians I send to see you aren't going to date you.' We've had a long and great relationship since, gosh, she was an assistant at Louisiana Tech. It goes back a long ways.

"She's just a big pain in the butt. That's all there is to it.''
