I guess people are starting to notice us after our hell of an impressive six-game winning streak. We’re 19-10, and have a bunch of big wins.

A couple months ago, I’m not even sure we were a lock for the tournament. We were right on the fringe. Now, we’re a lock with two games remaining.

The good news for Wisconsin is that we can also probably inch up another slot or two by the time this whole thing is done.

If we beat Northwestern and Indiana to close the regular season and get a couple wins the B1G tournament, then we’re going to be golden by Selection Sunday.

What a wild season it’s been, and now it’s time to close out strong and improve our position in the tournament field.

Props to this team for never giving up and just getting the job done.
