Bucky Claims The Big Ten Championship

Needing a win to claim sole possession of the Big Ten’s regular season title, the Badgers handed the Wildcats a 65-52 loss to eliminate the possibility of sharing the title with Indiana and Purdue.
“When someone says, ‘Who was the Big Ten champs this year?’ they won’t say Wisconsin, Indiana and Purdue; they’ll just say Wisconsin,” junior Marcus Landry said. “For us to have that we had to come out there, contribute and play our hearts out.”
The Badgers had claimed partial possession with a win over Penn State last Wednesday, but the weekend win sealed it up.
“To win it outright is nice because then it eliminates some of the conversation about this part of the season,” Badger coach Bo Ryan said.
I am looking forward to the Big Ten Tournament this weekend in Indianapolis. I hope the Badgers can pull it off and possibly have a #1 seed in the NCAA tournament. GO BUCKY!!!!
