Wisconsin State Journal reporter Jim Polzin asked Badgers fans on Twitter what they thought of Wisconsin's stunning 64-54 win over the 2nd-ranked Michigan Wolverines on Saturday at the Kohl Center in Madison.
Here's what fans were saying on Twitter after the Badgers ended a two-game losing skid with their biggest win of the season:
Little things make big difference
Little things. Happ touching the ball in the final minute, getting it back to Trice & what choice do the officials have but call an intentional foul? That offset the terrible no-call on Davidson taking a clear charge w/an extended Michigan arm. That was a March game in January!— Rob Hernandez (@RobHernandezGLF) January 19, 2019
One to remember ... for UW
Far more important win for the Badgers than loss for Michigan. We still need to find a consistent outside shooting threat.— Bill Goman (@WibadgerfanBill) January 19, 2019
How sweet it is!
I enjoyed it.— Jason Gay (@jasongay) January 19, 2019
I enjoy beating Michigan in anything.
Going the distance
That's 40 minutes of execution right there— Collin Mead (@29_CJM) January 19, 2019
Return to their roots
When you do the things Badger Basketball was built on, you win games.— Trent Probst (@coachprobst) January 19, 2019
Teamwork makes the dream work
Team effort. Scoring from Aleem. Free throws from Happ. Have we been able to say all three of those things at the same time all season?!— Kyle Margolis (@kylemargolis) January 19, 2019
Coach still in control
Coach never lost the locker room.— Brent Wegner (@brentwegner) January 19, 2019
This is how we (should) do it
TEAM WIN. How we should play every single game.— Brión (@LeBrian2345) January 19, 2019
Recipe for success
Make shots, play defense , win games ...... turnovers killed Michigan and Wisconsin took advantage— SidVicious Bagley (@BadgerSid) January 19, 2019
Getting in sync
Gutty win! They showed in Nov/ Dec. they can hang with the best in the country. Stumbled lately, looked out of sync. All about executing, taking care of the ball, not beating themselves. Need to keep building off this.— Paul Bergum (@paul_bergum) January 19, 2019
Let's look to King
Great win, tough all around and finally finished strong. I think you have to put Kobe King into the starting line up the rest of the year.— Matthew Harer (@TripleBadger10) January 19, 2019
Another vote for King
Looked like the Badgers again for 40 minutes. King to starter. Gard off the hot seat.— Bill Te Winkle (@hope_pastorbill) January 19, 2019
It's a bird; it's a plane...it's Happman!
Another top team bites the dust
Give Coach Gard and his players credit for the way they gutted this out, and how effectively they kept Michigan playing at our preferred pace. Kohl Center magic takes down another Top Ten team.— Russ Evansen (@waunaruss) January 19, 2019
A much-need boost
MAJOR BOOST FOR OUR GUYS’ MORAL ♥️♥️♥️♥️🎈🎈🎈🎈— michelle muranyi (@MMJGF) January 19, 2019
King comes out of hiding
Finally came to play. Who is number 23? Did not know he was on team until today— Rwyman (@Wiscwin1) January 19, 2019
That's more like it
Best D of the season. Did Iggy score? And without fouling!— Brohamand (@brohamand) January 19, 2019
Huge lifts from Ford and King off the bench.
Solid start sets the stage
Jim, also very cool to see: Wisconsin only down by 2 at half puts together another INCREDIBLE 2nd half with 39 points. Goes to show what we can do w at least a decent 1st half— TMF4 (@t_m_fitzpatrick) January 19, 2019
Party like it's 1989
Just like 1989!!!— Steve (@Steve39381985) January 19, 2019
Great Team victory. Badger defense played tough never giving Michigan a chance to get any momentum. Showed they were the better team especially in the final 2 minutes. I have to add even though Happ was 2 for 4 from the FT line his first shot makes were huge.— badgerjoe33 (@badgerjoe33) January 19, 2019
Was that a smile?
The showed Coach Gard smile after the Reuvers dunk. It was good to see. It will be fun to see how many people think he is a good coach again.— Over Macho Grande (@cjbronson1971) January 19, 2019
Let's welcome the wet blanket
One game does not a season make.— Stephen Loughrin (@sgloughrin) January 19, 2019
Waiting is the hardest part
This is the team I’ve been waiting to see from the beginning. Hitting the floor for loose balls, taking charges, and just throwing off Michigan’s game. That’s the Wisconsin way. I’m happy for Coach Gard, after all those contract extensions by the Athletic Board yesterday.— Jeff Ostach (@JeffOstach) January 19, 2019
