    I wish we owned this stat

    Minnesota broke Wisconsin's string of 50 games in row that they had won when the Badgers were leading or tied at the 5 minute remaining mark. Bo Ryan is one great coach.


    Clone to the Bone with the up and coming IOWA STATE.

    They only had that record because neither team scores in the last 5 minutes of a Wisconsin game. Frankly, there is hardly any scoring in any part of a Wisconsin game.

    Re: I wish we owned this stat

    Wisconsin is built around playing defense, they're basically a bigger and better version of UNI. We play an entirely different brand of basketball, of which I feel like the ceiling is definitely higher for us, but there can also be some real head-scratchers when we can't get it going offensively or go cold on the road at the end of games. IMO future ISU teams will continue to be dynamic and fast-tempo offensively, with better defense as well. I think the biggest thing right now is that we don't have the option to go bigger and match-up with other teams at certain times in a few of these games, and i don't necessarily think that's Fred's fault as I doubt he foresaw the issues with Booker and Percy (Booker for sure anyway).

    They may be a little boring, but they win a lot. I'd prefer winning with a boring style than losing playing fast.

    Since 2001, Bo Ryan's first year at UW, the badgers have never finished lower than 4th in the big10.

    I could learn to enjoy that style of play with that kind of success.

    I heard that last night, but I thought maybe they said 15 straight, and I had misheard it.

    Pretty impressive.

    I'd settle for 1 straight at this point.
