B5Q Roundtable: men’s basketball season postmortem

This was one of the most wild men’s basketball season that the Wisconsin Badgers have ever had. Going from preseason No. the conference to Big Ten regular season champs and a 3-seed in the NCAA Tournament? That was great. Losing to Iowa State in the second round of the tournament in Milwaukee? Well, that was less great but doesn’t negate the rest of the season.

Wisconsin men’s basketball: Lorne Bowman is still an option for UW next year

During the second half of Wisconsin’s loss to Iowa State in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Sunday, the TV commentators on TNT noted that Wisconsin backup point guard Lorne Bowman is “no longer with the team.” While that is technically true, Bowman hasn’t suited up since the Feb. 15 win against Indiana, the way it was said was confusing to viewers.

Wisconsin men’s basketball: Matthew Mors enters transfer portal

On Monday night, Verbal Commits posted on Twitter that Wisconsin Badgers redshirt freshman Matthew Mors was entering the transfer portal. It is thought that the 6-foot-7 native of Yankton, S.D. will be looking to move somewhere closer to home. Mors was rated as a high 3-star prospect (No. 145 nationally)...

Lucas: Wisconsin-Iowa State By The Numbers

MADISON, Wis. — In the aftermath of the loss to Michigan State in the Big Ten Tournament, one of the conclusions was that Tyler Wahl didn't take enough shots. Wahl was 3-for-4 from the floor against the Spartans, his fewest FG attempts since the first Purdue game (Jan. 3) when he also went 3-of-4. What a difference a week makes. Friday night, Wahl set a career high with "18" shots in the UW's spirited win over Colgate. His previous high was 14 attempts (twice).

Wisconsin Basketball: A thank you to Brad Davison

It’s a day that seemed like it would never arrive, but Brad Davison has played his final game for Wisconsin Basketball. Davison has been a fan-favorite since the first day he stepped foot on the court for the Badgers. Many Badgers fans have a spot for Davison in their hearts for the contributions that he’s made over the last five years. For everything, we just have to say, thank you.

On Sunday evening, the Wisconsin Badgers women’s basketball team got some great news as Holy Cross’ Avery LaBarbera announced that she would be using her last year of eligibility to play for Marisa Moseley’s squad.

I've seen it all, and wouldn’t change a thing

Nearly 20 years have passed and basketball remains a huge part of my life story. It’s taken me on this great journey, from Maple Grove, Minnesota, to Madison, Wisconsin; from being a tag-along kid brother to being a soon-to-be-married college graduate; from taking halftime jumpers with a girls-sized ball all by myself to starting more than 150 games for one of the best Division I men’s programs in the country.

Wisconsin men’s basketball: UW blows second half lead, falls to Nebraska on Senior Day

MADISON — The No. 10 Wisconsin Badgers men's hoops (24-6 overall, 15-5 Big Ten) hosted the Nebraska Cornhuskers (10-21, 4-16 Big Ten) on Sunday afternoon in their regular season finale. With a win, the Badgers would win the Big Ten championship outright and be the No. 1 seed in the upcoming Big Ten tournament. Combine that with Senior Day and you had a recipe for a great day.

Recruiting is the lifeblood of any major college athletics team, but following it closely as a fan can sometimes be difficult and can often be time consuming. We’ll try and condense all the recruiting news you can use into this bi-weekly (sometimes more) post. It’ll include updates on current commits, including stats from their high school games, as well as news on players the Badgers are still pursuing. Let’s get down to business!
