Badgers have extra motivation to make Final Four

Posted: Updated:
ANAHEIM, CA (WKOW) -- Wisconsin men's basketball head coach Bo Ryan has seemingly done it all in his 13 seasons with the Badgers.

He's the school's all-time wins leader, has taken home five Big Ten titles, and has advanced to the Sweet 16 six times. But there's one place Ryan has not been: the Final Four.

The players know this is their chance to give him that recognition.

The Arizona Wildcats will also be playing for their coach, Sean Miller. He's never been to the Final Four either.

Tip-off between Arizona and Wisconsin is set for Saturday at 7:49 p.m. CT.
