Oh happy days! What a week for the UW-Madison mens basketball team. After beating in state rival UW-Milwaukee, they totally dominated Pittsburgh on Saturday. Alando Tucker was brilliant again scoring 32 and 10 rebounds. Brain Butch showed up wit 27 and 11 rebounds.
Wisconsin Led the whole second half, and the game was never really in doubt. The game was tight up until about 5 minutes left in the first half when the Badgers went on a 20-9 scoring run to end the half.
Dick Vitale was calling the game for ESPN and he was really impressed with Tucker calling him is current favorite for player of the year. He also thought both Wisconsin and Pitt would make a serious push in the NCAA tournament.
In the new AP rankings the Badgers climbed to 4th place there highest ranking ever. Previous they were ranked 6th back on Dec 4th, 1962.
