What did Mike Lucas have to say about Wisconsin's upset win over Purdue in Madison last night?
Old fashioned B10 rock fight. The Badgers didn't have better players or biggest rocks but they "trusted the process" and outfought the Boilers, esp on defensive end. Played with intensity and purpose of some previous defenses that had more experience and talent. Refused to rattle— Mike Lucas (@LucasAtLarge) February 16, 2018
After Purdue made 2ndH run the Badgers found ways to answer by getting to FT line. Made just enough to prevent separation. Kept poise under pressure. Made more clutch plays (Iverson block on Carsen Edwards) much 2 delight of returning Final 4 players who were among court stormers— Mike Lucas (@LucasAtLarge) February 16, 2018
The last time the UW beat the Boilers, Kaminsky, Dekker, Gasser, Koenig, Hayes were starters. As spectators, they were genuinely excited to see huge underdog pull off the upset. Building was loud. Defense was tenacious. Emotion was palpable. Turnovers were low. Resolve was high.— Mike Lucas (@LucasAtLarge) February 16, 2018
