LIVE GAME THREAD: Exhibition: UW-La Crosse (0-0) at No. 24 Wisconsin (0-0)

MADISON, Wis. - Greetings from the Kohl Center, where I am positively pumped to begin another season covering Wisconsin basketball. The Badgers play the first of two exhibition games tonight against UW-La Crosse.

Wisconsin barely made its way into the preseason coaches' poll but just got shut out of the AP rankings (the Badgers would be 26th). Not that head coach Bo Ryan cares about such things, of course.

Your comments, questions and predictions are encouraged. We'll be here all game, and we'll try and provide more details than usual, since this game is only available on BigTenNetwork.com.

Here are tonight's starters:

UW-La Crosse

Luke Tweed

Tony Mane

Cory Degner

Wisconsin

Jordan Taylor

Jon Leuer

Keaton Nankivil

Tim Jarmusz

Ryan Evans
