Just over two minutes in to Sunday's matchup with Ohio State, the Badgers and Buckeyes were all tied up at six after an Aaron Craft jumper from the top of the key. At that point, it looked like the game was bound to be an offensive shoot-out; a style that certainly did not favor the Badgers. Eight minutes and a 18-0 run for Wisconsin later, the Badgers had themselves a 24-6 lead over the #13 team in the nation.
Everything seemed to go right for now-ranked #19 Wisconsin on Sunday. The offense was running effectively. Ball movement led to good three point looks that were falling. Cuts to the basket created some easy buckets. Jared Berggren was creating and finishing in the post. Ben Brust was hitting every shot in sight. Heck, even Ryan Evans' mid-range jump shot was falling. So were his TOMAHAWK TIPSLAMS!
It wasn't just on one side of the floor, though. The Badgers played gritty and determined defense throughout the game, forcing the Buckeyes in to a number of bad shots and wasted possession. Wisconsin's defensive efforts held one of the Big Ten's most dynamic offenses to 37.5% shooting and a season low 49 points.no comments
