Deferring Dreams, Making History
That's what the UW men's basketball team did this afternoon. They slammed Illinois' dream of redeeming their worst season in a decade, and they accomplished something no Wisconsin basketball team has ever done-- winning both the Big Ten regular season and tournament titles in one school year. Congratulations, Badgers! A historic season, that, to me at least, erases the bittersweetness of last year, regardless of what comes in the tournament. More on this game and the Big Ten's likely shafting in the NCAA seeding later tonight. Try to not look ahead just yet, and savor this special season.
