As a fun and exciting way to support the organization, we endeavor to make each Badgers point worth a little more.
Great Midwest Bank is donating $2 for every point scored in the regular season, conference tournament, and in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship Tournament. And the Badgers did not disappoint scoring this season. They racked up 2099 points!
