Wisconsin Badgers Basketball Team Info
In the 2014 NCAA Tournament the Badgers pulled off big
win after big win, advancing all the way to the Final Four before falling to eventual champs the UConn Huskies. That was an
impressive run but the Badgers could not help but feel a little disappointed, even though fans definitely recognize that it's
difficult just to get to that point. This season, Wisconsin will be returning a key core of players who know what it takes
to make a deep run in the Tournament and also have a bitter taste in their mouth after losing in the semifinals that they
will use as motivation not to fall short again.
Of course, legendary coach Bo Ryan will be drawing up the plays and
defensive schemes that he hopes will help Wisconsin bring home the first national championship in more than 70 years. Wisconsin
always has a great team but this year's squad has all the makings of something special and you will want to be there from
the opening tip off of the very first game to cheer the Badgers on during what could be a historic season. When the game is
on the line and the Badgers are digging in hoping to make a clutch defensive stand or a timely bucket to help seal the deal,
you'll definitely be glad that you're not sitting anywhere else.
