MI to face Wisconsin in Big Ten Tournament championship gameBy Norman Carr Mar 12, 2017
"You deal with a lot things throughout a season", senior guard Zak Showalter said after UW rolled to a 76-48 victory to advance to the title game to face MI at 2:30 p.m. Sunday.
Wisconsin has the best defense in the Big Ten and it's a defensive system that has slowed down John Beilein's offense more consistently than any other.
The Badgers opened the game with a 7-0 run, striking a balance between attacking the paint, hitting from the perimeter and bottling up Northwestern.
Walton vs. Koenig will certainly be the matchup to watch as the two are some of the very best among Big Ten point guards.
The Badgers led 59-35 after another 3-pointer, this one by reserve D'Mitrik Trice, with 10:00 left and cruised down the stretch as several starters were able to get some rest in advance of the title game Sunday.
As they did in their quarterfinal victory over in, the Badgers got contributions from up and down the lineup.
Maryland started the second half by scoring eight unanswered points to extend its lead to 10.
Just the one change in the Ireland squad to face Wales
We've worked hard in this RBS 6 Nations and feel like a good performance is just around the corner. One thing you can say is that the Irish team gave it everything they had.
Rutgers (15-17) now has won back-to-back games after a six-game skid. "We will continue to build on it". "So with that sense of urgency, I think we'll do what we need to do - try and play well all those games compared to when taking those lulls in games". This time, though, the Badgers took him out of the game and he looked like a shell of his former self. He and freshmen Huerter and Anthony Cowan scored all but 12 of Maryland's 64 points on Friday night. The Hawkeyes still are listed by Palm as one of the "First Four Out", however, and the players harbor some small hope. The Badgers are also holding their opponents to the 7th-lowest points per game average in the country, allowing just 61.1 points per game this season. "If you're going to hold IN to (60) and then hold Northwestern under 50, I think that says a lot about how far we've come defensively. They were good. Give them credit".
The Wisconsin Badgers find themselves playing for the conference championship after defeating IN and IN their semi-final, Northwestern by a final score of 76-48. It'll be interesting to see what Bryant McIntosh, Scottie Lindsey and Co. can do in March. Restaurants, of course, pair with teams and we have great restaurant partnerships. We got beat today.
The 24th-ranked Badgers checked off all three goals in their 76-48 rout of the Wildcats at the Verizon Center, a shockingly thorough victory that sent a message to the rest of the Big Ten and the NCAA Selection Committee that UW is officially back after a February to forget.
In the last game of his career, CJ Gettys had 4 points and 5 rebounds, while senior walk-on Khalil Batie had a nice moment with a three-pointer to end his service with the program.
The Terrapins defeated Michigan State 63-60 as Melo Trimble scored a game-winning three-pointer with 1.1 seconds left Saturday, Mar 4 in the regular season finale.
"It's always a sad day", Pikiell said of the loss being the last game of the season.
Can Northwestern pull off another upset when it meets up with No. 25 Maryland in the Big Ten Tournament quarterfinal tonight at 8:55 PM ET? Doing against a team that contributed to their downfall would just be an added bonus. "So to take him out of it and just make life hard for him, that was goal number one, two and three". I think sometimes psychologically we talk too much about all that kind of stuff.
