Meet The New Coolest Kid In Boise, Idaho

At the beginning of the Fresno State-Boise State game, a wild shot went over the backboard and the basketball got stuck behind the rim. It’s unlike anything you’ve seen in basketball. This is a different kind of wedgie (Shouts to The Starters), a much more

Lonzo Ball Should Pull An Aaron Rodgers On His Family

I really don’t know how I ended up hating Lonzo Ball’s family. I love watching Lonzo play basketball for UCLA. In fact, I hope there’s a chance he could come to Milwaukee for the NCAA Tournament. But I can’t take his dad, LeVar or his

Hoopcap: East Lansing Continues To Be A House of Horrors

Hoopcap: Badgers Come Alive In Second Half

Wisconsin was in a rut. No other way to put it. Badgers trailed by six at halftime and stared down the possibility of losing three straight as well as losing the Big Ten conference led. Then as we’ve seen at different points of the season,
