DiD YoU KnoW?

March 9, 2007

  • The only other time UW was the No. 2 seed in the Big Ten tournament was in 2004, when the Badgers won their only Big Ten tournament title. That year they defeated No. 10 Minnesota, No. 3 Michigan State and No. 1 Illinois for the crown.

  • With a win tonight the Badger's will nab their 100th win under Big Ten Player of the Year Alando Tucker's four year tenure.
  • Tucker needs one more point to break Devin Harris' single-season scoring record of 624 points set during the 2003-'04 season and 23 points to surpass Michael Finley's school scoring record of 2,147 points, which he accumulated from 1991-95.

  • Tucker recently took part in a Black History Month project that can be viewed on the UW's athletic department Web site. Listen to Tucker record a moment in UW's Black History that leads to Athletic Board Resolution Opposing Jim Crow Lodging Arrangements, 1958.

  • If the game comes down to a last second shot, the best bet is on senior Kammron Taylor. Taylor hit the game-winning 3-pointer with 3.9 seconds left to give UW a 52-50 win over Michigan State on March 3. It was the fourth time in Taylor's career he has hit a last-minute shot to give UW a win or send a game into overtime.

  • UW ranks 10th in the country in scoring defense, allowing just 57.5 points per game.

  • In Bo Ryan's six years as head coach, the Badgers have amassed a 91-5 record at home. That is the third-best home winning percentage in the country during that span.

  • F/C Jason Chappell's nickname is J-Cheezy and has his own line of designer t-shirts with the signature line, "It ain't easy, bein' cheezy." Get one NOW!
