Wow, what a great opening weekend. The Badgers advance to the Sweet 16 in consecutive seasons for the first time in program history.
Here's a factoid for you - only 3 other teams (Louisville, NC State, and Ohio) in the Sweet 16 beat a higher seeded team than the Badgers (#5 Vandy) to get to the second weekend. UW earned its spot.
Let's get on to some video fun with Mike Lucas interviewing Jordan Taylor and Bruiser after the game.
Here's what Bo had to say to the guys in his post-game speech. It gives some good insight into how important everyone is to the program. Bo calls out not wanting Taylor and Wilson to stop playing and the role the scout team had in the team's success.
It seems like Bo is feistier than past tournaments in defending his program. I like it. Here are some of his comments about what the Badgers need to prove to be considered an elite program.
If you haven't seen this yet, the Badgers stayed on the court after the game to sing varsity with the fans in the Q.
The Badgers making it to the Sweet 16 proved a lot of experts wrong, even Marvelous Mark, who predicted Vandy would beat UW Saturday.
