Wisconsin Badgers Basketball Schedule

There has perhaps never been a better time to be a Wisconsin Badgers basketball fan as they are coming off a thrilling Final Four run and returning several key starters including leading scorer and rebounder Frank Kaminsky. The Badgers will enter the 2014-2015 college basketball season not only as one of the favorites to win the Big Ten, but one of the favorites to win it all. Of course the Badgers are always contenders with coach Bo Ryan leading the way, but this year could have the makings of something special. The Big Ten is never a cakewalk no matter how talented your team as it is far and away one of the best conferences in the country featuring the likes of Michigan State, Michigan, Ohio State, Indiana, and others. Madison and Kohl Center are always abuzz during college basketball season and this year even more hard core Badgers supporters will be looking to make their way into the arena on gameday so get your badgers basketball tickets from StubHub early.

There are plenty of big games on the Badgers' schedule each year as they battle their way through the Big Ten. One of the biggest games this season will be when the Michigan State Spartans come to Madison. These two teams were two of the best in the conference last season and this could be a game that decides the winner of the Big Ten regular season. Another big game will be when the Michigan Wolverines come to town. The Wolverines will be looking to reload in 2014 but are the defending Big Ten regular season champs and will not be willing to go down easy. Several other important games will be held at Kohl Center this season, so check out the entire schedule on StubHub and get tickets to every game you hope to attend.


The Team

In the 2014 NCAA Tournament the Badgers pulled off big win after big win, advancing all the way to the Final Four before falling to eventual champs the UConn Huskies. That was an impressive run but the Badgers could not help but feel a little disappointed. This season Wisconsin will be returning a key core of players who know what it takes to make a deep run in the Tournament and also have a bitter taste in their mouth after losing in the semifinals that they will use as motivation not to fall short again. Seven foot superstar Frank Kaminsky will be returning to Madison and appears to be a preseason contender for National Player of the Year, especially if he leads the team once again in scoring and rebounding and the Badgers can duplicate last season's success. Traevon Jackson, last year's leading assist man, will also come back to the team and provide on court leadership at the guard position that every successful team needs. Of course legendary coach Bo Ryan will be drawing up the plays and defensive schemes that he hopes will help Wisconsin bring home the first national championship in more than 70 years. Wisconsin always has a great team but this year's squad has all the makings of something special and you will want to be there from the opening tip off of the very first game to cheer the Badgers on during what could be a historic season.


Wisconsin Badgers Basketball Conference

The Big Ten has long been regarded as a premiere football conference, but basketball has also always been a big deal in the conference and lately many of the schools have proven themselves as contenders on the national level. Perennial powerhouses Michigan, Michigan State, and Indiana always are solid competition and with the recent development of programs like Ohio State, and Minnesota, the conference is only getting tougher. Altogether the Big Ten has combined for ten National Championships with Indiana accounting for five. Each year since 1978 the Big Ten has been the conference with the highest attendance in all of college basketball. Playing such a difficult regular season schedule each year leaves the teams from the Big Ten who make it to the Tournament prepared to take on any team in the country and allows for even some of the lower seeds to pull off big time upsets. The 2014-2015 season will see Maryland and Rutgers joining the Big Ten which will make for a total of 14 teams in the conference and will also add even more depth to one of the deepest conferences in college hoops. When it comes to college sports there is arguably no conference that is historically better or more dominant than the Big 10.


The Experience

College basketball offers fans some of the most thrilling and intense competition in the world of sports. As two teams go back and forth racing up and down the court pulling off clutch shots and big time defensive stops the people in the stands get more and more nervous and loud. Finally, as the clock winds down the Badgers are once again locked in another tight Big Ten battle. Each possession counts and becomes more and more important. Finally your palms get sweaty with each trip down the floor and each time a player from your favorite team lets loose a shot you hold your breath until the ball tickles the twine. This continues until the final buzzer when the Badgers' side erupts after another big win and their fans flow out of the arena in jubilation. Suddenly you find yourself a die hard Wisconsin fan for life and cannot wait until the next time you set foot in Kohl Center for another important Wisconsin Badgers basketball game.


Trivia
