Badgers win sixth straight Big Ten Conference gameSubmitted: 02/10/2016
MADISON - Wisconsin defeated Nebraska 72-61 on Wednesday night in Madison.

Coach Greg Gard says opponents have seen the Badgers play well inside during the teams sixth game winning streak.

So Nebraska shuffled between man-to-man and 2-3 zone.

That didn't work out because the Badgers hit the three ball.

Gard did his scouting too.

He had seen that Nebraska double teams when they go to man-to-man defense.

"They had shown that all year," Gard said. "So they were trying to take what had been our strength away. Fortunately for our guys to be able to recognize that and be unselfish for the most part. When you shoot 11-18 that's 33 points on 18 possessions. That's really good."


A player that really stepped up tonight for the Badgers was Vitto Brown.

He came into the game scoring less than night points a game.

The team was excited to see Brown score 18 Wednesday

"You know it was about time because I was ready to rough him up, I told him to meet me outside the locker room," Badgers Nigel Hayes said jokingly. "Seriously that's what we expect. I told him at the beginning of the year that's what we expect from him. He just has to keep playing with the confidence that he has."

GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers cleaned out their lockers Monday

Their season ended abruptly in overtime for the second straight season on Saturday against the Arizona Cardinals.

The Packers had an up and down season on the offensive side of ball.

"Obviously we did not get it done on offense so I think the structure was obviously a part of the failure so that's something we'll be closely evaluated," said Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy.

The Packers offense didn't have that same flow as it did last year. A couple factors played into that. First the run is an integral part of the pass. Eddie Lacy rushed for 758 yards this year, that's 381 yards less than last year. McCarthy said he needs to be in better shape next year.
