Gabe Kalscheur knows a thing or two about facing Wisconsin. On Sunday, he had one more chance to face the Badgers, and he made the most of it.

A native of Minnesota, Kalscheur began his career with 3 seasons for the Golden Gophers. He averaged 10.4 points while starting 88 games for Minnesota and was a part of 2 wins against the Badgers.

This time around, Kalscheur was playing for even bigger stakes as a member of Iowa State. He responded with 22 points, tied for second-highest by Kalscheur in a Cyclone uniform. That performance included a 10-for-19 shooting night, 4 rebounds, an assist and 2 steals.

After the game, Kalscheur was asked about his feelings for Wisconsin. As a native Minnesotan, it’s not hard to understand his thoughts.

He admitted to never liking Wisconsin, saying “it fueled my fire.”

After the dramatic upset, Kalscheur definitely gets the last laugh this season.
