The Wisconsin Badgers are the 2008 Big Ten Champions. The Badgers clinched at least a share of the title with a convincing 77-41 win over the Penn State Nittany Lions at the Kohl Center on Wednesday night.
The Badgers moved a full game in front of both Purdue and Indiana with one game to play. Wisconsin can clinch the title outright with a win Saturday at Northwestern.
It's the third Big Ten crown for Bo Ryan (pictured) in his seven years as the Badgers head coach.
Junior forward Marcus Landry led all scorers with 15 points as the Badgers won their 25th game (25-4, 15-2 Big Ten) of the season. Brian Butch added 12 points.
Four seniors, Landy, Butch, Greg Stiemsma and Tanner Bronson played their final home game of their careers. The group equaled a school record with their 99th win in four seasons. They can break that mark with a win Saturday in Evanston, Ill.
Bo Ryan also earned his 550th coaching victory.
