So this was the UW locker room after the game last night. Wait for about 0:22 in for some epic Sam Dekker white boy dance moves. We are so white.

I haven't watched much WI basketball this season, how's Jim Jackson's son Traevon looking?

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.


No kidding. Watching Jackson early in the year, it was shocking just how over-matched he looked as a starting PG in a quality program like Wisconsin, especially after a pretty long run of very solid to good point guards that Bo had in place with Mike Kelly, Chris Rock, Travon Hughes, and then Taylor.

Don't forget about Devin.

It got to a point yesterday that I was worried when Jackson fouled out. He was carrying himself like a floor general out there at certain points. That pull up jumper late in the 4th was the back breaker for Indiana.

Huge game tonight as it pertains to the Big Ten Title chase. #5 Michigan @ #9 Minnesota. Winner gets a big time conference win. Loser falls 2 games back of Wisconsin. This is the only time the two teams will play during conference play. Should be a good game.

It has 12 minutes left to live up to that billing.

Yeah it's tough to watch. At least we don't have to play them again. At this point I think Michigan is clearly the favorite in the Big Ten, at least from a talent perspective. I guess they have the toughest conference schedule so that may come back to bite them, but they are incredibly athletic and can also shoot.

Not over yet, Minnesota is good, they need to stop digging themselves giant holes to get out of.

I know they've dug themselves big holes the past two games, but Minnesota seems quite legit when they have it together. I don't recall the last time they were this talented and this good. The B10 is insanely loaded this year, especially considering that there are no runaway elite teams in the NCAA this season.

After these last two games, I can't wait to get some games against Penn State and Nebraska.

That's part of the reason I didn't get too excited after we beat Indiana. It's nice to have 4 wins already but there's a long tough road ahead. If we turned around and lost the next 4 I wouldn't be stunned.

Minnesota will be fine, but I think what we've learned this week is that Illinois was massively overrated.

Definitely. It took me longer than most to realize this because I became a believer after they went in to Spokane and handled the Zags from start to finish. Not many teams can do that. I think that was just a fluke game though now.

Classic let down/trap game for UW.

Tough start for MU, but a nice finish to make it a good game. Still time for the W.

Wow, Kilpatrick was unstoppable. Hard fought game, but a tough loss.

Davante Gardner's second half was ridiculous. That said, what a rough finish.

Traevon Jackson went back to playing like the worst player in college basketball.

His FT shooting is pretty incredible for a guy his size. I was very impressed how he tied it up twice in crucial spots.

Pretty much. A huge negative on both ends of the court. Contributed absolutely nothing on offense. Marshall on the other hand looked decent. Dekker was the only consistent threat on offense tonight, but a few sloppy turnovers got him planted on the bench by Bo.

Also, it's maddening how poor this team is at getting the ball to Berggren in the post. Part of it is on Berggren to establish more down there, but I suspect not having a competent PG to get him the ball has led him to forgo the post and stick to the perimeter.

Don't want to overreact too much to one game, but at least point I think you have to roll with Marshall/Dekker. Jackson can't shoot, can't penetrate, can't feed the post - literally the only thing he does well is protect the ball. At least Marshall has an outside shot. It's tough to win games when your PG provides absolutely nothing on offense for 30 minutes.
