Badgers celebrate men's basketball season with fans

Posted: Updated:
MADISON, WI (WKOW) -- Coming off one of the most successful seasons in Wisconsin men's basketball history, a sell-out crowd filled the Kohl Center Thursday night to celebrate the season with the team.

Nearly 800 people came out to show their support for the team's accomplishments, including getting out to the best start in school history, at 16-0, reaching 30 wins for just the 3-rd time in school history, and giving head coach Bo Ryan his first ever trip to the Final Four.

The annual event allows Badgers fans to re-live the highlights of the season and commemorate the careers of the UW senior class.
