Badgers know staying perfect won't be easy


Madison, WISCONSIN (WXOW)  Through the first 15 games of season for the Badger men's basketball team the biggest obstacle has been the Green Bay Packers.

That's right, the Badgers had to move their game back a half hour on Sunday so it didn't overlap with the Packers and 49ers game.

But the Iowa Hawkeyes also put up a fight Sunday night, forcing the Badgers to overcome an 11-point halftime deficit to remain undefeated.

It was adversity the Badgers hadn't seen to that point.

But they know they've got to expect that every night in the Big Ten.

"Every game is a tough game in the Big Ten and the way we prepare for it is a little bit different than the preseason because we know the teams. Just the way we've been preparing for these games is good so far I'm just excited for the rest of the games," said center Frank Kaminsky.

"You just got to go game by game and right now we're focused on Illinois because despite if we hadn't won all the 15 games we had, we still have Illinois so you're just going for one game at a time and right now it's Illinois next," said guard Ben Brust.

Wisconsin will host the Fighting Illini Wednesday at 8pm.
