Hopefully MSU or OSU sells out and lays an egg next week, because we're finally playing badger basketball. I think we stand a good chance of making a run of the cards fall right, although our 3 pt shooting is a total ABORTION.

Davison was a treat to watch. Iverson was completely non existent as usual.


Iverson's last three games he's averaged almost a double double. And he plays good defense.

Would have been great to pull that one out. Looking forward to seeing what this team can do in the B1G tourney.

I haven't watched much at all for college hoops this year, so it was fun to finally dive in to a Badger game. I was really getting in the game and they battled their butts off and almost pulled off the upset (MSU). I hope they can keep playing well in the B10 Tourney, but I don't think they will have enough to pull off a miracle run.

Nice little win today, although they didn't shoot great. It would have been nice if they wouldn't have had that stretch through the middle of the season where they went 1-8 or whatever. Still probably wouldn't have been good enough to get into the tournament, but at least could have hit 20 wins.

Enjoyed the fight again today. Get their rematch with Michigan State. Hopefully, State will be overlooking them and we can catch them napping.

If they EVER shoot well they can beat anybody in the game, including MSU. Seems to be quite the task however.

Playing MSU tough. I wish this was the team that we got to see all year. Gives me some hope for next year. I was starting to think this team was doomed, but they appear to have grown a lot over the last few weeks.

EDIT: 19 seconds left and that's the best they could do...hmm.

Free throws and rebounds are the story in this one. Very winnable game. The last possession was absolutely terrible as well. Not mad or upset at all. They gave Michigan State all they could handle, twice, in a week.

It's really annoying we always lose to Sparty by what seems like 3-4 points every single time, but my faith has been restored after the past few weeks. It was really impressive to see this team play so well down the stretch when they easily could have just folded up and headed for the offseason...Gard seems plenty safe to me.

NEED. SHOOTING. Hopefully Ford becomes that guy.

Unsurprisingly, Davidson to have surgery very soon, Happ to submit for the NBA draft without an agent. He's also confirmed that the grad transfer stuff is bogus.

Why did I think Happ was a senior for some reason? Looks like he's still thinking about coming back. I bet he does, i'd be quite happy if so.

Without an agent, would Happ basically be stuck at where he's drafted at? Would the team hold his rights for a few years and be able to hold him at that salary level like what happened to Richard Griffith? Or since he doesn't have an agent, would he be able to play another year at Wisconsin and get re-drafted? What does not hiring an agent benefit him besides not paying an agent commission, apart from enjoying a senior season at Wisconsin?

As long as he doesn't hire an agent he can go to the combine and get his draft grade. If it isn't good enough he can decide to come back for his senior year. However, if he signed with an agent he would not be able to return. I believe.

IMO, there is ZERO chance of Happ leaving early. You can't play in the NBA if you can't do anything outside of 3-4 feet unless you're an absolute beast like Shaq. He has no jumper and he struggles mightily against bigger guys (see MSU games) - that will be almost everyone in the NBA. He's not ready plain and simple. Spend the off season bulking up, then working on some form of jumper and MAYBE he has a shot to make a roster next year. I can't imagine the NBA gives him anything close to a high enough grade for him to leave early.

The good news is that he seems realistic about it, noting that he's looking to learn from the eval process but prefers to develop at Wisconsin for another year rather than the D league or whatever if the feedback says that's what he's looking at. I think you're correct that there's almost no chance they'll give him a first round grade.

I really wish this team had a stud coming in next season. The mix of Happ-Pritzl-Iverson-Trice with Davison-King-Reuters-Ford could be very good in the big ten next year but if we could add someone to mix in as a freshman, this team could be very deep.

Unsurprisingly, Van Vliet will be leaving the program:

That opens a scholarship, correct?
