Michigan star Hunter Dickinson’s attempts at trash talk did not go according to plan Tuesday against the Wisconsin Badgers.

Dickinson had pledged that Michigan was going to “steal a win at Wisconsin,” and he arrived at Kohl Center wearing a ski mask to punctuate the point. That would have been a good line had the Wolverines been able to follow through.

Instead, Michigan lost 64-59 despite carrying a lead into halftime and holding Wisconsin without a field goal for the final 10:45 of the game.

Dickinson didn’t make any friends in Madison. In addition to the ski mask stunt, many Badgers fans remembered when he referred to the team as “scumbags” in a podcast appearance several months ago.

Dickinson was booed every time he touched the ball, and did not really respond with a big game. He scored 12 points and added 12 rebounds while shooting 4-of-9 from the field.

Dickinson has a history of being brash and bold, but that only works when you back it up. Michigan’s inability to come away with a win here makes him look pretty bad.
