Badgers Basketball Highlight Moments
In the early days, the Badgers were coached by none other than Dr. Jim Elsom. That was way back in 1898. The Badgers would make a name for themselves by 1906, when the team won their first Big Ten Championship. By that time, Coach Elsom had moved on, and Emmett Angell was managing the team. The team won back to back Big Ten Championship games in 1907 and 1908. The good times had just begun, as Coach Walter Meanwell coached the Badgers to none other than eight Big Ten Championships, and two undefeated seasons. He would coach the team for twenty three seasons before Bud Foster took over.
Foster would also spend decades at Wisconsin, and be the last coach to get his team to a post season tournament. For the next forty years, Badger basketball fans would have little to cheer about. In 1999 Dick Bennett managed to take the team to the Final Four. He retired abruptly the next season, leaving Brad Soderberg to take over. At the end of that season, Bo Ryan was named head coach, and once again the Badgers worked their way back to greatness. Ryan’s teams have made it to the “Big Dance” twelve years in a row. In that time the Badgers have gone as far as the Elite Eight, but no further.
