The Wisconsin Badgers stunned Michigan State 64-63 Saturday afternoon.

After Kobe King quit the team and with Brad Davison suspended, the Badgers took the floor in Madison against the Spartans and balled out. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Despite the fact I legitimately thought this could be a massacre today, Wisconsin proved to be the better team on this fine Saturday.

Say whatever you want about the carnage and chaos surrounding the program, but we just went out and beat one of the best teams in America.

We didn’t just beat Michigan State. We dominated from the opening tip through the final whistle. The Spartans certainly made it interesting, but Wisconsin controlled everything from start to finish.

When our backs were to the wall, Wisconsin responded in a major way, and this is huge for our tournament hopes.

Things really couldn’t have gone better than they did today. It was an incredibly fun game to watch, and it’s a reminder of what Wisconsin basketball is capable of when we’re at the top of our game.
