Zeller is a great college basketball player, but it's amazing how much IU depends on him. I'm not sure they're a top 25 team without him.

I think he's their 2nd most valuable player. Oladipo is the engine that drives that team. He's an absolute stud defender

In shape 18-22 year olds running out of gas? Hilarious.

Decker is the next (college level) Dunleavy.

Awesome game by UW. They look like a different team recently.

Yeah, that team is definitely not making the tournament.

Best win since the Michael Flowers Miracle at Texas in 2007. Outstanding finish given how cold the Badgers were midway through the 2nd half.

Evans takes some ill-advised shots, but he was absolutely enormous tonight. His all-around game has gotten better and better, especially the rebounding and passing.

I don't know, Feb 2011 vs #1 OSU was pretty good too... monster second half comeback. What a win. I am a diehard Badger fan, and I can't believe they are 4-0 in the Big10.

Traevon Jackson, who just weeks ago looked like he didn't belong in Division 1-A Basketball, was the reason we won tonight. If he and Dekker can continue to grow and improve, watch out for Bucky come tournament time. Even Bruesewitz had some nice moments tonight.

Couldn't knock out Jim Harbaugh, but at least we got his brother in law.

This was the biggest thing for me. I made the same comment about him not looking like a D1 basketball player and all the sudden he looks like he at least belongs. I really can't believe we won.

Yeah I owe Jackson an apology. I was one of the people who said he didn't deserve to play D1 basketball but in the last few weeks he's really stepped into the start role and become a leader.

Dekker still remains our best offensive player as far as getting his own shot. He should be in the damn game with 5 minutes left.

We got lucky a couple times at the end Evans had the ball and they opted not to quickly foul him. We should really do offense/defense with him at the end of games.

Gopher Hole from BadgerNation.

The Gophers cause these teams to shoot their wad, and Wisconsin comes in for sloppy seconds. It's not fair.

What does it take to not be looking up at the Badgers in the standings? Honest to god, what does it bleeping take? Because a 15-2 record, a #9 national ranking and losing only to teams who have been #1 in the country at some point this season doesn't do the job. We are still looking up at those lame-ass blankety blanks in the f-ing standings. I quit.

Gopher Hole is obsessed with Wisconsin in both football and basketball, it's incredible actually.

So much for Bucky not making the tourney. This is probably Wisco's worst team of the next 4-5 seasons too, at least on paper. Adding Gasser, Koenig, Hayes, Brown, Hill, Dearring to this current roster. Only big loss next year is Berggren (I'm not an Evans fan, Bruiser is replaceable).

Traevon Jackson's development has been crazy. Bo's just a great player development coach.

That game was in Madison and was non-conference. This was a bigger win.

Just wondering if anyone knew where Marquette or Wisconsin were at with the recruiting of Kevin Looney (2014) and Diamond Stone (2015). There is no way that Wisconsin or Marquette can let these 2 top 5 players in their class leave Wisconsin. We already lost JP Tokoto and if they want to compete for National championships they need these 2 guys!

Badgers are out of 2014 schollies, but from what I've read Dukan's is conditional so they would make room for Looney. Most think Looney goes out of state. Stone has Wisconsin and Marquette as his top 2 currently, but he's only a sophomore so a lot can change.

Stone would be a perfect fit for Wisconsin, given a true pivot will be their biggest need most likely at that point in time. I think if reaching his player ceiling in terms of pro potential is the most important thing to him, Stone should choose to go with Bo Ryan easily over Buzz Williams. But I could see it going either way. He was in attendance for the Illinois game in Madison.
