After shooting less than 35% from the field in 4 of the last 5 games (including stellar efforts of 31.4% in a L at Michigan and 31.3% in a W(!) vs. Nebraska), Wisconsin managed to shoot 50% from the field and 52% from distance tonight in a good old fashioned Wildcat pounding tonight.
Going back to the Nebraska win for a second, I meant to point out this dandy of a quote from Nebraska coach Doc Sadler after the Cornhuskers shot just two free throws in Madison:
“It wasn’t our lack of being aggressive taking it to the basket,” Nebraska coach Doc Sadler said. “Obviously they’re just an unbelievable defensive team to not foul.”
I think he was being sarcastic.
In other Badgers news, I am super pumped that UW football is poaching coaches from top programs such as Western Kentucky and Northern Illinois to fill their offensive assistant coaching vacancies. I am guessing that the offensive line coach will be from Louisiana Tech or San Jose State.
