January 25, 2014 - Wisconsin's James White, who rushed for a game-high 62 yards and the North's only touchdown, was named the North's Most Outstanding Player. White scored on a one-yard run with 6:04 left in the game. Earlier in that drive, White broke an 18-yard run on third down from the South 20, and two plays later, he scored to cap a 59-yard march.

January 8, 2014 - The Wisconsin Badgers, ranked No. 4, downed Illinois 95-70 to run their record to 16-0 and record the best start in program history. The Badgers had five players in double figures. Ben Brust with 18, Sam Dekker with 17, Frank Kaminsky and Traevon Jackson had 15 and Nigel Hayes had 11. The Badgers (16-0, 3-0 Big Ten) set a program record for most consecutive victories to start the season. The 1911-12 and 1913-14 teams each posted 15-0 seasons. One of the more impressive things about that streak is UW has won while scoring in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and even one game over the century mark.
