Wisconsin goes down in NCAA basketball tournament

Print Email
(The author)

With a sloppy first half—in which the Wisconsin Badgers’ offense committed more turnovers than their game average on the season—and a not good enough second half, in which all those three-pointers they seemed to make during the year clanked off the rim, Tablet Magazine’s official team bowed out of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament in a 61-54 loss to the Butler Bulldogs, last year’s overall runner-up.

For now, sadness. Still, enjoy the (Duke-less!) weekend of games. We will come up with a team for you to root for in time for next weekend’s Final Four.

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

And I thought that the Blue and White from Indianapolis, BUTLER Bulldogs, will be your team to root for.
