Big Ten Geeks: Did Fran lose it?

The easy narrative for Wisconsin’s win over Iowa is that Fran McCaffrey was hit with a double technical foul when his team held a 2-point lead, and that those four points gave Wisconsin the lead, the momentum, and the margin of victory.

Ben Brust dedicates Badgers win to late cousin

Ben Brust played with a heavy heart during Wisconsin’s 75-71 win over Iowa on Sunday. Constant thoughts were running through the mind of the Badgers’ senior shooting guard. What could have been. What was. What isn’t anymore.

Big Ten Geeks: Wolverines Win in the Barn

Thursday brought conference openers for the four Big Ten teams that didn’t get going on New Year’s Eve. One game was a laugher, and one was a barn burner. Let’s dive right in. In a fantastic basketball game, Michigan came away with a hard-fought road victory at Minnesota. This one was tight the whole way, as neither team managed a double digit lead at any point. The Wolverines got a huge boost from their bench, with freshman Zak Irvin going 5-of-8 from three for 15 points, and big man Jon Horford posting 14 points and nine rebounds. Those nice contributions aside,

Frank Kaminsky Q&A: Meet B1G's most improved player

Has there been a bigger surprise player in the Big Ten than Wisconsin’s Frank Kaminsky? Of course not. The 7-0, 234-pound junior has been a revelation. He always possessed a sweet shot, but Kaminsky has expanded his game to become a better-rounded player. He’s able to put the ball on the floor and has become a better rebounder. That’s why he now is among the conference’s top talents. It has been a stunning ascent. Kaminsky’s timing is perfect, as the Badgers have had to replace three key interior players in Jared Berggren, Mike Bruesewitz and Ryan Evans. Kaminsky enters Big
