Wisconsin State Journal reporter Jim Polzin asked Badgers fans on Twitter what they thought of Wisconsin's 59-50 loss to the New Mexico Lobos on Tuesday afternoon in the consolation game of the Legends Classic at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Here's what fans were saying after the Badgers lost their second straight game:
Location, location, location
If you’re going to have a poor performance in a tournament wouldn’t you want it in Grand Cayman or a warmer climate? I understand the analytics of scheduling good teams but do bad losses to them help?— badgerjoe33 (@badgerjoe33) November 27, 2019
Triple double, 11 flops?— Thornton Melon (@URaRa_Wisconsin) November 27, 2019
Not even close
We got destroyed the last two days by mid majors that were more athletic than we were...by miles.— Adam (@asb613) November 27, 2019
Recruits not living up to hype
The defense of Gard as a recruiter was always how highly ranked this junior class was coming out of high school. And yet here we are three years into them being coached in the program and it’s their turn and it’s clear we’re not that good right now.— Andrew Zimdars (@andrew_zimdars) November 27, 2019
Agree to disagree
Haha - Chryst and Gard will be here 10+ years, and they deserve to be— Kyle Pitzner (@kpitzner) November 27, 2019
Crossing the line
Don’t insult Iowa like that. 😂— Eric Rajala (@EricRajala) November 27, 2019
Can't believe it's come to this
Thankful for the Milwaukee Bucks— Jake Lund (@Jake_Lund) November 26, 2019
Why don’t they drive to the net? Shooting 3s ain’t working.— Ian (@illinoisblue) November 27, 2019
Where do you begin?
I’m at a loss for words this time Jim. So much to fix— Badger Super Fan (@BadgerSuperFan1) November 27, 2019
Lack of leadership
How can a team that hesitates that much on offense still turn it over as often as it does?— Chris Davis (@cdavis20000) November 27, 2019
How can so many juniors disappear for so long?
Desperately need a leader who can make a difference in crunch time. End of game scenarios have been bad.
Rough road ahead
Or short....— Kelli Mutschler (@kmutsch_kelli) November 27, 2019
No, not one at all— RAZOR RAMON (@DD_LONGWAY) November 27, 2019
Tale of two teams
How can the team be so different home and road? 9-53 from 3? Water will find its level but I wish they could be more consistent. Disappointing trip East— Dan Dahnert (@BadgerDan19) November 26, 2019
Worse than expected
Very tentative on offense, and not taking care of the ball. I figured it would take some time on offense, but ugh.— CVBucky (@CVBucky) November 27, 2019
Failure to adjust
Same offense every time down. It's not very hard to guard this offense. No adjustments whatsoever.— Austin Lindsay (@Lindsanity94) November 27, 2019
Clear a spot in the cellar
Yikes...— Chester Copperpot (@copperpot12345) November 27, 2019
Hello Rutgers! Hello Nebraska! We will be joining you in the Big 10 cellar this season 🤮
What was he thinking?
This is Twitter, no common sense allowed!— Dennis Whitehead (@Badgerden1) November 27, 2019
Im a glass half full guy. If they shoot just 5-26 (19.2%) from 3, ladies and gents, we have overtime! Forcing OT while shooting 5-26 from 3 would be rather impressive— Ryan Antony (@RyanAntony22) November 27, 2019
Can't wait for Dec. 21
At least the last one: we have one. The NCAA's got him held hostage until December whatever.— Aaron (@aaronallenmke) November 27, 2019

Atrocious. What was combined 3-pt for both games?— Marty Gallagher (@Badger468) November 27, 2019
