Badgers Season Starts Off With A Win... Barely

Just wanted to quickly mention the beginning of the season that will be the '08-'09 edition of the Wisconsin Badgers. The Badgers knocked off Long Beach State on Sunday afternoon, but could only do so by eight points.

Their 68-61 win was due in large part to Marcus Landry, who ended the game with 23 points. Jason Bohannon, who had the most minutes on the floor, was the team's second leading scorer with 12 points.

I spoke with my brother (and loyal Bucky Channel reader) Brent, who was able to make it to the season opener. He spoke very highly of Landry, who hit a clutch three and then had a huge block on the next possession to secure the game. Brent also adds that the Badgers looked pretty sluggish from the start of this one, and that Bo Ryan experimented with a lot of different lineups.

I'm not too worried about how close this game was, as the season is just getting underway. I may be a fair-weather Badgers football fan, but I stick by the basketball program through times good and bad.
