How about them Badgers?
I've been saying it for a little while now, but this Wisconsin Badgers men's basketball team is a different one than we've seen in years past, and last night's win over Indiana proved that. In the Bo Ryan era, this team has stuck purely with the swing offense and tough man defense. It was a style that was boring to some, but there's no denying its effectiveness. This year's team plays that style, but earn some style points while their at it. Instead of just wearing teams down with a very vanilla approach, this team isn't afraid to take a big 3 to kill a team's momentum and better yet, they've thrown down more dunks this year already than I've seen out of UW teams for a couple of seasons. From Jared Berggren to Sam Dekker to Ben Brust (!!!!!), this team has some swagger and I can't wait to see them really round into form come tournament time.
