Bohannon Helps Draw Up Badgers Game Plan


Madison (WQOW) -- Wisconsin made the 80-mile bus trip to Milwaukee on Tuesday for the opening rounds of the NCAA Tournament.

The Badgers will be heavy favorites over American on Thursday. The Eagles were 20-12 this season, winning the Patriot League tournament to gain an automatic bid. American could provide problems, however, with their Princeton-style offense.

The Badgers have turned to an unlikely source for pointers on how to defend the Eagles: guard Zach Bohannon. The senior ran the offense at Air Force before transferring to Wisconsin.

"This is my last go-round. I don't have much else of a career after this. I know I'm not going to be playing basketball after the NCAA Tournament is over. I know I probably won't be playing much in the NCAA Tournament. So, it's one of those things where I just want to do everything I can to help the team get better," says Bohannon.

Associate head coach Greg Gard adds: "If he doesn't become president, I think he'll be a pretty good coach if he decides to do that and give up his life as a politician.".

Wisconsin's game vs. American will be played at the Bradley Center at 11:40 a.m., Thursday. If the Badgers beat the Eagles, they'll face either BYU or Oregon on Saturday.
