I think you just like arguing.  Stop the video at .03 seconds.  It was very clearly bad help defense by Davison and he didn't try to trip Mason but the result of his bad footwork and stretched out leg is that Davison ends up tripping Mason.  Whether it happened or not is not debatable it is on video.  In real time the ref felt it wasn't a foul and I think the Badgers were lucky it wasn't called because it did stop the player from attempting a shot. 

Hopefully it will be a little spark for them to play better the last couple games.  I would like to see them beat Michigan State.

 



I just might be arguing for the sake of arguing ðŸ˜Ž

Let's not forget about the illegal screen at half-court on that final play as well.

Lorenzo Cain has a full no trade clause so there is no chance he will be traded.  If Braun is going to play first base then Jesus Aguilar will have to be released since he is out of minor league options.  No one is going to trade for him since every team knows the Brewers situation.  Last year the Thames/Aguilar platoon had a slash line of .268/.360/.544.  Braun had a slash line of .268/.336/.487 for the season.  The platoon of Thames/Aguilar produced better results last year than Braun.  I think Braun's days as an elite hitter are behind him, you can really only count on 120 games out of him now.


Is it realistic to think those two will repeat that performance in 2018?

Pritzl hit 6 of 9 three-pointers and added three rebounds, one assist, one block and no turnovers in 37 minutes.  This is the player the Badgers thought they were getting and if he continues to play like this the Badgers are a different team. 


He's 12/21 from deep in his last 4 games against Illinois, Michigan, Purdue, and Minnesota.

UW is definitely a different team when he is hitting shots.

Yes, the replay showed that whoever was late on the help defense tripped Mason.  



Let's try this link. Mason tweaks his ankle on the play, but from that angle, I'm not sure. 

Also, there was an illegal screen on Iverson at mid-court that was not called on the play.

The first 3 minutes of OT was the best I have seen this team play all year.  They moved the ball on offense and played good help defense.  Probably should of been a tripping foul called on the last play of regulation but they took it to the Gophers in the OT and won the game.  Good wins going into tournament play.  Maybe they can upset a couple teams.


Did he make contact?

I'd be much more in favor of that suggestion than reseeding 1-16.

Are you in favor of changes to the playoff format? I'm not sure I am right now.

UW won their second straight game last night beating Minnesota in OT. It looked like UW was going to squander the game away in the middle of the 2nd half, but from the 6 minute mark on, the Badgers stepped up their defensive game. Continued progress on the defensive end is very encouragin. I believe Minnesota scored 5 points from the 6 minute mark of the 2nd half through OT. 

Happ played facilitator tonight as Minnesota came with doubles as soon as he touched the ball. Ford struggled for the 2nd consecutive game, but Pritzl and Davison (mostly in the 1st half) were brilliant. If both Pritzl and Ford can shoot with confidence, that will really help the offense.

As a walk on that had a mid major D1 scholarship, he is not the typical walk on. 


So did Walt McGrory. I'm not trying to knock Anderson, but my point is that we should temper our expectations with what Anderson is going to provide.

I agree that UW needs front court help with the 3 floundering juniors. However, this year has also showed us that UW only has one PG on the roster in Trice. While Davison has filled in admirably, I'm guessing the staff wants to play him off the ball in the future. While we all assume that Trevor Anderson will play, he is a walk-on and how much should we really expect from him?

Also, Frank the Tank being their was great to see. It just shows no matter how 'inferior' your players are, if you play good solid defense - you will stay in the game often against teams you have no business beating.

This.

This team has not been good defensively this year, which is why I've been disheartened with this team and staff at times this year.

Well, that was definitely a rock fight, and it was fun to finally come out on top. Of course, as soon as the game was over the fun police are out complaining about the students rushing the floor.

Let's say Darvish flames out in two years. It's an inconvenience for the Cubs, sure, but it would absolutely cripple the Brewers in a similar scenario.

I guess this is an issue with baseball's ecosystem writ large, but hopefully we start seeing pushback against these massive contracts to guys on the downside of their careers.


Exactly. It's why I'm in favor of signing Cobb or Lynn to a shorter term deal with less overall money. Both guys are 2 years younger than Darvish as well.
