The Badgers are on a run that nobody could have expected, that ultimately led to the team owning a share of the Big Ten regular season Championship. Now, the team has the #1 seed in what figures to be a brutal Big Ten Tournament, with six teams currently ranked, and three other teams just outside the top 25 in college basketball. How many of those teams can we expect to see in the NCAA Tournament?


Jeff Potrykus, Badgers reporter for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, believes that the Big Ten should have at least nine tournament teams, maybe even ten depending on how the conference tournament shakes out. He joined Bill on Tuesday to talk about the Big Ten Tournament, Greg Gard being named Big Ten Coach of the Year, and more:

- How have the Badgers managed to win the Big Ten this season without Ethan Happ?

- How big of an impact has Micah Potter had on the team?

- What are his thoughts on the depth of the Big Ten?
