The Badgers point guard from Bloomington was the difference-maker, a Minnesotan relishing a chance to stick it to longtime friends.

Jordan had a career night against the Gophers. He averages under 40% in field goal shooting and in the first half he was 6/6 on 3's and 6/8 on shots inside the 3-point line. The rest of the team's shooting was relatively insignificant. I think the Gophers take them at their place.

Winning games is obviously not at the top of Tubby's agenda. Until it is, he should ride the pine.

TAYLOR HAD HIS GOOD DAY WHILE GUARDED BY COLEMAN. SMITH REFUSED TO MAKE A CHANGE. WHEN COLEMAN PLAYED HE GUARDED JORDAN. I AM NOT SURE WHICH TEAM SMITH WAS COACHING. THE GOPHERS HELD A HALFTIME HALF COURT SHOT CONTEST AND THE CONTENDER MISSED. ON THIS DAY, I THINK HE WOULD HAVE MADE THE SHOT IF COLEMAN WAS GUARDING HIM.

Badgers are a terrible shooting team this year. Finally, Taylor was great, but the game Evans had with 17pts and 11 rebounds meant as much for the win. If we can win with 1 field goal over the last 13 minutes of the game in a place we haven't had much luck in, I like our chances at Madison in the rematch.

If Tubby is such a good coach why didn't he double team Taylor if he was the only good shooter they had on the court?

How many more top players are we going to lose to Wisconsin (or another team) this year, Tubby? Tubby is coasting at this point in his career and it is really sad to watch. Tyus Jones will be the next lost recruit....

Who would you rather play for, Bo Ryan or Tubby Smith??. Tubby is 36-47 in the Big Ten--a complete dud!

What is Taylors connection to Wisc. Did Tubby try and recruit Taylor?

The student section has no intimidation and (get in your head) demeanor. They should have loudly chanted "TRAITOR" whenever Jordy boy touched the ball.
