I've been trying to get Bo Ryan on 670 The Score since I started working there last May. Getting Bo to do the interview wasn't the problem, it was finding an excuse to talk Wisconsin basketball on a Chicago sports station that rarely talks college sports.
I guess the NCAA Tournament is all we needed. Bo was on this morning with Mully & Hanley and you can listen to the interview by clicking on the headline above.
Bo gives some good insight on Wofford and their star big man Noah Dahlman. He also said his players should get a "team of the year" award for the work they did in the offseason.
This is a blog post by former Notre Dame player Zach Hillesland discussing the impact of the numerous brands of basketballs used by college basketball teams. Note that Wisconsin is prominently featured because we are the only team in America to use a Sterling basketball.
This could explain our poor shooting in Indianapolis. However, it doesn't explain Illinois and Wisconsin both beating the other on the road.
UW announced a home-and-home with Washington Tuesday which will be played in 2017-18.
It's a toss-up as to how good the teams will be in eight years, but it could end up being a good game. At the very least, Seattle is a good place to visit.
