Wisconsin Badgers win a big border battle to pull back to 5-5 in conference play (Siker/14)
After a slow start again, Badgers star Sam Dekker emerged with co-team high 16 points with game-clinching 3-pointers at the end (Siker/14)
And the tip, Frank Kaminsky returns to his home state and had a quiet game going 0-1 from the field (Siker/14)
Sam Dekker was 5-9 from the field and 4-7 from long range. Playing 29 minutes, he scored most of his field goals from beyond the perimeter (Siker/14)
Sam Dekker with easy second chance points, this was his only 2-point FG of the game (Siker/14)
Nigel Hayes is gaining strong consideration for the Big Ten Sixth Man scoring 14 points off the pine (Siker/14)
Scoring from long-range jump shots or in the paint, defenders are challenged to stop the Badgers freshman (Siker/14)
Nigel Hayes will be the Badgers inside presence for seasons to come (Siker/14)
Ben Brust was scored 16 points which tied Sam Dekker for team high (Siker/14)
Shooting 4-10 from the field and a perfect 6-6 from free throw line, Brust is a key offensive contributor (Siker/14)
Everyone knows Ben Brust can sink the long range shot but he also has diversified his game with dribble penetration and cuts to the hoop (Siker/14)
Traevon Jackson had a solid game with 14 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists (Siker/14)
Here Traevon Jackson shoots a three pointer next to Illinois students and misses (Siker/14)
Bronson Koenig sank a few baskets and played 17 minutes (Siker/14)
Josh Gasser plays Big Ten basketball the hard way (Siker/14)
Josh Gasser played most minutes of any Badger with 38 and is one of the conference best on-ball defenders (Siker/14)
When the Badgers seek the clutch basket or need a leadership play, gritty Josh Gasser stands up (Siker/14)
Classic Josh Gasser moment, challenging post defenders and ready to embrace contact (Siker/14)
Coach Bo Ryan has coached the Badgers 13 seasons and stays true to his principles (Siker/14)
Illini defense harassed Badgers players but Bucky was able to cruise away late (Siker/14)
Illini defense was able to get Badgers big both in foul trouble with 4 on Kaminsky and Hayes (Siker/14)
Sam Dekker has persevered despite the coach pulling him on and off the court with teaching points (Siker/14)
Nigel Hayes has different options to score when he has the ball in the post position (Siker/14)
Badgers guards also are expected to attack post defense in Bo Ryan's swing system (Siker/14)
Sam Dekker looks to find Badgers guard gaining post position (Siker/14)
Sam Dekker's shot making ability will dictate how far the Badgers will play into March (Siker/14)
Badgers have relied on consistent production from their bigs (Siker/14)
With improved play from Nigel Hayes, the Badgers will re-emerge as a force to be reckoned with (Siker/14)
Common theme in the Badgers losses has been their deficiency on post defense (Siker/14)
Whether undersized with 3-guard configuration or beaten by quickness, opponents have figured out consistent ways to defeat the defense (Siker/14)
Frank Kaminsky picked up his fourth foul on this drive. Illini player made the bucket and one (Siker/14)
Collectively when Wisconsin collapses the lane and puts their hands up, this can cause opponents to miss from short range (Siker/14)
Badgers help defense will be a key for success (Siker/14)
Badgers player of the game Nigel Hayes takes questions from the media, very poised for an 18-year-old (Siker/14)
Illini coach John Groce brings the passion to the sidelines (Siker/14)
Unfortunately for him, there were more moments like this vs the Badgers (Siker/14)

For over five decades, many past hall of famers have marched down this tunnel into action (Siker/14)
