Lucas at Large: MBB: Wisconsin 61, Penn State 57

Here's what Mike Lucas had to say about Wisconsin's 61-57 win over Penn State in men's basketball on Saturday.

"In sweeping PSU, the Badgers got 19 and 26 points from an inconsistent source: the bench. Brevin Pritzl had 17 and Kobe King had 9. Pressure? What pressure? Pritzl suddenly morphed into Celine Dion and began singing along to Titantic theme (“My heart will go on”) in final seconds"

"Despite sluggish early play the Badgers were solid with the ball from start to finish against a defense that was leading the B10 in steals. Had only 5 turnovers (nobody with more than one) and just one in the second half which limited transition. Outscored PSU 12-0 on pts off TOs"

"PSU-UW postscript. Only fitting on '90s Day that Tracy Webster, now an NBA scout, was in the house. Helped lead Badgers to Big Dance in '94. Still career assists leader (501) tho played just 3-years. No.2 on list is Jordan Taylor (464) followed by Ethan Happ (405). Select company"
