Badgers Advance To Paradise Jam Finals

After a brief scare against Iona on Friday night, the Badgers were able to roll past San Diego on Sunday.

Up next, a date in the tournament finals with UConn, one of the best teams in the country.

“I just know they’re good,” coach Bo Ryan said after the game. “They’re not No. 2 by accident.”

"It's going to be tough," added Trevon Hughes.

It was Hughes' 22 points that were able to lead Wisconsin to a 64-49 victory against San Diego. Keaton Nankivil added 10 points, while Marcus Landry chipped in with nine.

Between the Packers and the Bucks game on Monday night, the Badgers game might get lost in the shuffle of Wisconsin sports. At this time, I'm not even sure if the game will be able to be found anywhere on television. But it's a game that could play a large role come seeding time for the NCAA tournament, even though it is so early in the season.

You don't get many chances to play the best in the country, and the game against UConn will be a pretty good litmus test for this Badgers squad.

We need some Marquette updates please, since they are going to be better than UW the bucky channel should jump on the bandwagon early.

For all of the Chi-town dwellers, the Badger game is on Comcast Sports Net at 7:30. That is, of course, if you are not going to be at Will's Northwoods Inn for all of the action.
