Marshall is going to be a good player, you can tell he's a freshman but he's got some game.

Welcome to the Wisconsin Badgers offensive system. Dribble around for 25 seconds and hope for the best after that. :)

I know, I've seen it for years, but it still amazes me. Saturday is going to be a very painful and annoying game to watch, even if we can pull it off. I'm sure Ryan Evans will have a career game as well.

Interesting strategy to not score for the rest of the game.

Evans should be ashamed of his play today.

Yeah, I like him a lot better than Jackson. He will be a nice pair with Koenig next year.

If this gets to OT I think Wisconsin wins.

I was pretty sure he was going to miss that free throw, he looked a little scared.

Bo needs to make them shoot free throws until they cant stand anymore.

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.
