The Lineup: 9 moments from SportsCenter at WiSConsin
Once again, SportsCenter took its show on the road yesterday. The latest stop saw the 11 p.m. ET edition of ESPN’s flagship show emanate from the Kohl Center on the campus of the University of Wisconsin in Madison to coincide with No. 2 Wisconsin’s game against No. 4 Duke (won by the Blue Devils, 80-70).
Front Row captures some of the highlights from the evening in this special edition of The Lineup:
1. The anchors for the evening were John Buccigross and Kevin Connors.
Welcome to the best sports town in America @SportsCenter #madison Go #Badgers!

3. Heisman hopeful and Badgers running back Melvin Gordon joined SC for some hoops and football talk.
Love @SportsCenter @Buccigross interview w/ @Melvingordon25. Just a kid from Kenosha, admits he has never visited NYC. #Badgers

7. 0-of-4 from half court officially, if anyone was counting.
8. ESPN’s Madison visit is far from over. Tonight, Buccigross gets down to the Nitty Gritty with some “cawlidge hawkey” talk with Wisconsin’s lone Hobey Baker winner Blake Geoffrion.
Don't miss @buccigross 7 pm tomorrow at Nitty Gritty. Talking #cawlidgehawkey w/ @BlakeGeoffrion and whoever shows up pic.twitter.com/ATMjHDX2fK
