  • Diamond Stone allowed to stay in game after unsportsmanlike act

    Wisconsin fans already had ill-will toward Maryland freshman Diamond Stone before Saturday for choosing to be a Terrapin instead of a Badger out of high school after growing up in Milwaukee.

    Stone gave them a legitimate reason to dislike him when he fell to the floor with Wisconsin forward Vitto Brown late in the first half and intentionally pushed Brown's head into the floor as he got up. Perhaps Stone was annoyed by his performance to that point or the fact that his second-ranked team was losing by 16 points to an unranked opponent.

    Wisconsin went on to post a huge upset 70-57 on the road, boosting its hopes for an at-large berth to the NCAA Tournament next month.
