The University of Wisconsin would first play college basketball in 1898 and would enjoy their first taste of success with an NCAA Championship win in 1941. Although 1941 is the only national championship title for Wisconsin in the ‘tournament era’ they are now one of the most dominant basketball programs in the country. The move to ‘powerhouse’ status would begin in 1994 with the Badgers’ first NCAA tournament appearance since 1947. They would go on to make 17 more appearances in the ‘Big Dance’ to date.

While you don’t need to have a satellite/cable subscription to watch finding a Badgers’ game stream is significantly easier if you do. Figure out what sort of channels you have access to–everyone has ESPN but if you also have the Big Ten Network you’re in luck. The majority of the Badgers’ regular season and conference tournament games air on these two networks. Both have first rate streaming platforms available for cable subscribers. In addition, some cable/satellite subscriptions offer ‘TV Anywhere’ service that provides online viewing of all channels. In any case, if you have any of the above resources you’re in good shape.
