The Ohio State-Wisconsin game just ended, and it was a rare sighting of a hyped 1 v. 2 match-up that actually lived up to its billing. Neither team looked great, with both teams taking their shots back and forth at each other. Kammron Taylor is one player who's going to have a hard time sleeping tonight, though. With less than a minute left, and the Badgers up one, the Senior missed the front end of the one-and-one. Then, down by one with 3.9 seconds left, he got his shot blocked by the defender.
Kammron finished the game 4-12 from the field for 10 points. This was after his 0-6 performance at Michigan St. on Tuesday.
The Badgers have slipped a little going into the tournament, and next Saturday's game at home against Michigan St. is now a must win. They are no longer a sure bet for a #1 seed, and really need to turn it up for the next two weeks.
In a side note, the game also showcased one of the most gruesome sports injuries I've seen in a while. Wisco's Brian Butch landed on his arm, came up with something that wasn't quite what it was before.
Who knows how severe the injury will end up being, but the Badgers really need him to make a deep tournament run. Let's all hope he comes back soon.
NOW, to the Oscars!
