Sam Dekker has no regard for teammate life

Sam Dekker can be intense, and so can his celebrations. This time, though. Nigel Hayes wasn't quite prepared. Here's the more zoomed-out view. Just like Bo Ryan's first great freakout of the season, these are the things we can really enjoy after a win.

Bo Ryan freakouts are extra enjoyable after a win

+

This is one of those things we can enjoy after a win: the first great Bo Ryan freakout of the season. Wisconsin took down Georgetown, 68-65, in the Battle 4 Atlantis semis. The championship game is Friday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. CT vs. Oklahoma.

The Badgers won't get all the ranked opponents they hoped to face, but Georgetown proved formidable in an overtime thriller against Florida last night. And this game is on regular ol' ESPN!

This is how you warm up at the Battle 4 Atlantis

+

The latest reminder that this Battle 4 Atlantis tournament is just something else: this is how teams warmup. In the ballroom lobby, where the rug looks super fancy and 200 years old, and without a basketball. Seriously, watching this vine on loop is straight-up hypnotic.

Happy Thanksgiving. Yes, even you Minnesota.

Happy Thanksgiving, y'all. I hope you are spending it with people you love, even if they are from Minnesota. Since I imagine most (read: all) of you will be glued to the couch/dinner table all day, this video will be the most exercise you get today. The hate will resume in earnest tomorrow.

Georgetown Q&A: B5Q grills Casual Hoya

We chased down a Georgetown expert after its big win last night to get the skinny on this year's Hoyas. Can Wisconsin avoid being another victim in this upset-laden Battle 4 Atlantis?

Dave Aranda named 2014 Broyles Award nominee

+

Wisconsin defensive coordinator Dave Aranda, whose defense is ranked in the top five in the FBS in four major categories, was named a nominee for the 2014 Broyles Award on Wednesday. The award honors the top assistant coach in college football each year.

"The Mad Scientist" is in his second year as the Badgers' defensive coordinator, as he brought his 3-4 defense over with head coach Gary Andersen from Utah State. Wisconsin's defense is No. 2 in total defense (259.3 yards per game), No. 5 in rushing defense (97.1), No. 3 in passing defense (162.2) and No. 3 in scoring defense (16.1 points per game).

The Broyles Award winner will be announced Dec. 9 at the Marriott Hotel in Little Rock, Ark. The Rotary Club of Little Rock and Delta Dental will present the award. Last year, another Big Ten conference defensive coordinator, Michigan State's Pat Narduzzi, was the winner.

Badgers rout UAB in Battle 4 Atlantis opener

The Badgers had no trouble getting past the Blazers in their first test in the Bahamas.

Zak Showalter's put-back dunk vs. UAB was nasty

3

This nasty Zak Showalter dunk came in Wisconsin's win over UAB in Wednesday night's Battle 4 Atlantis opener. Showalter scored seven points in 12 minutes, and this dunk might've been the highlight of the game -- I can't say for sure because I don't have AXS TV, and thusly could not watch the game. Hopefully ESPN gets the channel, so that they can make this SportsCenter Top 10 worthy.

I don't want to hurt the Gophers' feelings by posting a video of a team celebrating a big rivalry victory, I know they don't respond well to that, but here we are. Oops.

The UAB Blazers are the first opponent standing in the Wisconsin Badgers' way at the Battle 4 Atlantis.

The Battle 4 Atlantis is such a crazy event

2

This is your annual reminder that the Battle 4 Atlantis is almost too damn wacky/awesome to be a real thing. The games are played in ballrooms, and the ceilings are super low. I can just picture Bo Ryan's exasperated hands-up expression when a half-court heave at the end of the first half hits the ceiling and breaks a light or something.

Also, as the @BadgerMBB tweet indicates, there appear to be multiple ballrooms of importance. How weird is that?
