The Wisconsin Badgers destroyed Rider in basketball 65-37 Tuesday night.

Coming into tonight, I said this was a very easy game to win, but that didn’t mean we could overlook our opponent. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

After all, the Badgers entered the night at 7-5. We’re now 8-5, and we’re balling after an absolute dominating performance over Rider led by Aleem Ford and Nate Reuvers.

Do you all know what the halftime score was tonight? It was 22-11. It was 22-11 at the half! The Badgers held a D1 team to 11 points in a half.

We might not have been scoring a ton, but good luck finding better defense than that.

If we play the same defense we did tonight down the stretch, then we’re going to be just fine in Big 10 conference play, which is now what awaits us.

We might have started off incredibly slow, but we’re rolling now after tonight and our win over Tennessee.

I feel things in the air shifting in a positive direction, and I can’t wait to start attacking our opponents in the B1G.

It’s going to be a good time!
