Watching the Badgers beat the Illini on the road down at the Laurel Tavern in Madison
This was how it looked down at the Laurel to Non-Cable Guy as Kam Taylor stepped to the line with the game on the line -- 25.8 seconds to go and the Badgers leading, 67-64. Taylor drained two free throws to hold off the Illini and help the Badgers go on to win, 71-64, preserving the longest winning streak in college basketball this year and boosting their Big 10 undefeated record to 5-0. The win also gave the Badgers their first win in Champaign's Assembly Hall under coach Bo Ryan. And if this goes on, I'll just have to overcome my anti-cable prejudice just to keep my bar tab under control.
