Badgers outplayed by UNLV to end tournament run

Category: Badgers — Patrick Stumpf @ 10:55 pm

After falling behind early yet again to UNLV, the Badgers couldn’t overcome the deficit and were bounced out of the NCAA Tournament by the Runnin’ Rebels. The same disturbing trend was consistent for the Badgers since the beginning of the Big Ten tourney on. They got off to slow starts, and would have to dig themselves out of their own hole to come back. They managed to escape a 18-point deficit and beat 15-seed Texas A&M CC Friday, but today’s hole was just too deep. Seniors Kammron Taylor and Alando Tucker carried the load, but UW couldn’t find that third scorer behind them with Brian Butch still out. Tucker unfortuantely will end his illustrious career at Madison, ranking as both the single-season and All-Time scoring leader. 2007 will hopefully be just as productive as 2006, with Marcus Landry, Joe Krabbenhoft, Brian Butch, Michael Flowers, Greg Stiemsma, and Trevon Hughes all returning. Tim Jarmusz, a very established guard from Oshkosh West, will also be coming to UW. Jarmusz lead West to back to back D-1 championships, as they beat Milwaukee Vincent last night.
