'One Shining Moment': Badgers men's basketball team shares highlights from pandemic-shortened season

Wisconsin Indiana Basketball

Wisconsin forward Nate Reuvers celebrates after the Badgers defeated host Indiana 60-56 to earn at least a share of the Big Ten Conference title on Saturday in Bloomington.

From an emotional start to the season to an emotional finish, the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball program covers it all in a 3-minute “One Shining Moment” video it released Friday afternoon.

The Badgers’ season ended prematurely due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. UW finished the season 21-10 overall and 14-6 in the Big Ten, good for a three-way share of the its first regular-season title in five years.

There were plenty of great moments in a season that ended with the Badgers winning their final eight games. From big 3-pointers by Brad Davison and Brevin Pritzl … to a clutch performance at Michigan by D’Mitrik Trice … to Nate Reuvers’ ability to make shots on one end of the court and block them on the other end … to Micah Potter’s monster one-handed jam against Rutgers … to Aleem Ford saving his best play for the stretch run … to key contributions from reserves Trevor Anderson and Tyler Wahl … to the role of Jerell Moore, whose family the program rallied around after a crash killed his mother Jennifer and 9-year-old sister Jaidyn and severely injured his father, UW assistant coach Howard Moore, last May … all those moments, and more, are included in the video.
