Badger hoops searches for more offensive weapons

Madison, WI (WKOW) - -

The young Badgers are proving to be consistently inconsistent.
     Further evidence of that was on display Wednesday night against UW-Milwaukee.

The Panthers beat the Badgers for the first time since 1992 in large part because nobody would help Nigel Hayes on the offensive end. 
    Hayes scored 32 points for the game, 17 of those in the second half.
    The rest of the team scored 10 after halftime.

"Points are irrelevant when you lose," said Hayes.
 "He needed some help from his teammates. Some of the things we did there down the stretch. I mean you're going to have your 6'9" center drive three-quarters of the court and try to make a one-on-one move to the basket. How often have you ever seen that. I don't have a number for that one," said Badgers head coach Bo Ryan.

Wisconsin will host Marquette Saturday afternoon.
