State Journal reporter Jim Polzin asked Badgers fans on Twitter what they thought of No. 22 Wisconsin's 69-64 win over the Northwestern Wildcats on Saturday night at Welsh-Ryan Arena in Evanston, Ill.
Here's what fans were saying on Twitter after the Badgers handed the Wildcats their eighth consecutive loss:
Pressure's off, right?
It's blue and red.— Jim Polzin (@JimPolzinWSJ) February 24, 2019
Penny for his thoughts
I'd love to get Gard's take on why he's so comfortable letting his guards run the shot clock down and then force action with under 10 on the shot clock in one/two possession games with over a minute left on the game clock. Why not value points over seconds in those situations?— The Chicago Badger (@ChicagoBadger23) February 24, 2019
What are you looking for?
On the flip side, do you run the regular offense and feed Happ in the post? Because if he gets fouled and misses FTs, then everybody's complaining about not taking more time off the clock, right?— Jim Polzin (@JimPolzinWSJ) February 24, 2019
It's all good
Any road win in the Big Ten is good— Jeff Howard (@JeffHowie32) February 24, 2019
Doing the dirty work
Nothing but love...for now
Happy for Greg Gard! Doing a heckuva job— Douglas Greenberg (@DougGreenB) February 24, 2019
How'd that work out?
I think Ethan should expect to get double teamed every game the rest of the season— Joe Kuester (@JCKuest) February 24, 2019
They can't all be fun
Like a trip to the dentist..— Jack Pine Express (@kwzanella) February 24, 2019
They don't come easy
No easy wins in the conference, putting Iverson on law the last 4 minutes made the difference— Austin Punzel (@AustinPunzel) February 24, 2019
Driving in Wisconsin is a road win! Traveling to your opponent's court and beating them in the Big Ten is pretty fantastic!— Terry Gibbons (@Gibbons285Tg) February 24, 2019
I love Big Ten basketball. It’s a grind. Not always pretty, but man these games are intense.— Jeff Bruggink (@bru4pk) February 24, 2019
Desperation can be dangerous
Great win against a very desperate team! Happ huge down the stretch!— Gary Brilowski (@gbrilo) February 24, 2019
Movin' on up
Welsh-Ryan Arena doesn’t look like a high school gym anymore.— Trent Probst (@coachprobst) February 24, 2019
Did just enough. Some questionable shot selection at end of game, but made enough FT'S to seal it.— Thömas A. Miller (@UWBone24) February 24, 2019
Adjusting on the fly
Thought Gard made some nice adjustments..that helped the offense get un-stuck...wins in 8 of last 10 road conference games ...showed toughness— Fritz608 (@TimSeifriz) February 24, 2019
Law and Pardon had their way, took everything needed for this win.— Kurt Sagendorph (@ksagendo) February 24, 2019

Breathing a sigh of relief
Whew!— Jennifer O'Neill (@JenskaO64) February 24, 2019
There's always one
What specifically?— Chris (@cress728) February 24, 2019
