Video: Watch Ryan Evans' powerful putback

Prior to Sunday’s tip vs. Ohio State, Wisconsin’s Ryan Evans was listed as questionable due to illness. Evans started despite being under the weather, and it’s a good thing he did.

Watch the dunk now and see the Twitter reaction to it in this post.

Here are some of the tweets following Evans’ slam:

And here are a couple USA TODAY Sports photos of the dunk:

Badgers aren’t dead, just aren’t going to win the title, 4th place isn’t bad !

Actually, the Badgers are in 3rd place. They have the tie breaker against Michigan.

Good point Russell, they also have the tie breaker vs IU.
