The Wisconsin Badgers are on
the verge of getting off the bubble and into the NCAA Tournament after a 67-59
win at 8th ranked Iowa
last night.  Bronson Koenig led the way
with 15 points.  Nigel Hayes added
10.  This is the 1st time the
Badgers have knocked off two top 10 teams on the road in the same year since
1955.  The Badgers will host Michigan on Sunday
night.  You’ll hear it on KFIZ.


Henry Ellenson scored 22
