    uneblinstu's postgame chatter: Vol: 10; ed: 25 - @ Wisconsin

      Nebraska battles back with a 30-8 run at the Kohl Center to keep their NCAA tournament run hopes going. James Palmer with a game high 28.

    Didn't really get to watch this one as close as usual, but this was a gritty, gutsy win. To be down that big and charge back to win comfortably is really remarkable. Impressive win. Hope they get rested up and go get another one on Tuesday. Big time stuff, I'm so happy right now!

    I thought this game was going to end at the FT line, but I thought it was going to be because we'd fouled everyone out and had to send the walk-ons in to finish the game.

     

    Man, I thought the officials were calling a tight game on one end of the floor for awhile.  But who in the league has guards who can match ours?

     

    I sure hope Palmer comes back next year.  Would really love to see what this team could do playing from the front.

    The only other time in program history we have had 17 regular season wins in January is 1991.
    And this is the best start in-conference after 12 games since 1999 (we were 9-3).

    I did not believe we could come back and win.  Great determination and grit led to the win.  Rest up and let’s go beat Goldy Gopher in Minneapolis.

    Shock and awe...we woke up the last ten minutes, and absolutely wrecked the Badgers.

    Anton and Isaiah don't score and we win

    Our bigs in huge foul trouble and we win.

    Glynn came up big

    James came up big

    Isaac came up big.

    Jordy played well.

    Evan played well.

    We fouled too much, or so sayeth the refs.

    Just a big, big road win.  Man, this feels good.

    Helps that our schedule is compressed a week ahead of normal. But impressive, nonetheless.

    This team can really scuffle out there.  I mean play some bad basketball.  But they never quit.  Very resilient bunch.  Lots of examples but this game and PSU are a couple of illustrations.   Lots of games where we have some really bad minutes or go scoreless, yet they don't get rattled and storm back.

    The Badger message boards must be melting down right now.  To get all the calls to go your way and yet piss the game away at the free throw line...man, that's got to be a terrible feeling.  Ha! :P

    They called every body foul on Nebraska and none on Wisconsin.  If they looked at Happ a little crosseyed, the whistle blew.  So frustrating.

     

    However, it was nice that they called Davison (sp?) for some of the BS charges he tries to draw, so that was welcome.

    We are not only kicking some serious ass on the court right now but we are crushing Vegas with another line they missed by 15 points.  I believe 17-6 ATS, which is crazy good.  Hopefully there is a degenerate gambler on the selection committee and can argue this point on our behalf!

    ESPN Win Probability was 7.4 percent when Wisconsin took 55-44 lead at 9:58. (92.6 percent Wisconsin)

    I was just about to go check on that. 

     

    Thanks.

    I feel like Jordy doesn't get enough props for what he brought to the game tonight (and really the last half dozen games or so)

     

    I am starting to be a big Jordy fan!  #Normandie #RiskyRoadz

     

    I was so glad he came back with his head on straight. Man, he's been so much more confident with his bench role.

     

    It's been a welcome sight to see Jordy aggressive on D with the way those refs were calling any & all ticky-tack crap on NU, a.k.a. if anyone breathed on Happ.

    Jerry Palm is starting to take notice and rightfully so (hell, it's nice national media was actually watching us play because of us!!!)...I suspect he's not the only national talking head that will have to start taking a closer look at NU
