Wisconsin Badgers Basketball Details
Madison is one of the Midwest’s best college towns. While you’re there this winter, make sure to get to a Badger basketball game.
Wisconsin’s basketball program dates back to 1898, just a few years after the school became a charter member of the Big Ten Conference. From 1907 through 1947, the Badgers won 14 conference championships.
From that point on, Wisconsin didn’t reach the NCAA Tournament again until 1994, but that’s when its fortunes started to improve. Head coach Dick Bennett led the Badgers to a Final Four in 2000. His successor, Bo Ryan, piloted the team to 14 NCAA berths, seven Sweet Sixteens and two Final Fours in his 15 seasons. The Badgers lost to Duke in the 2015 final.
Home games are played on campus at the Kohl Center, which holds just over 17,000 fans for basketball. With two overhanging balconies, fans are very close to the court.
The vocal, supportive Grateful Red – Wisconsin’s student section – can be found behind one of the baskets. You’ll notice them by the tie-dyed T-shirts.
ESPN.com once praised the atmosphere in Madison by saying: "Oh, and good luck winning at the Kohl Center. In a league in which most of the home venues are tough, Wisconsin's stands out as almost impenetrable."
Wisconsin’s fiercest rivals are Minnesota and Iowa. The Badgers have faced the Golden Gophers more than 200 times, and have tipped off against the Hawkeyes nerly as many times since they first met in 1909. Both series are pretty close to even.
