Video: Bo Ryan Pranks Wisconsin Basketball Team Before Giving Them Their Final Four Rings

A few days ago, Wisconsin basketball unveiled its awesome 2014 Final Four rings. Today, the school released the video of the team getting their rings. There are plenty of great things in this video — like star big man Frank Kaminsky’s reaction to hearing that they’re getting rings, to the look on players’ faces when they see the rings for the first time — but the best part...

All-Bo Ryan starting 5: Frank Kaminsky

During his 13 seasons in charge of Wisconsin's basketball program, Bo Ryan has guided the Badgers to new heights. His teams have reached the NCAA tournament every season, he has five Big Ten titles, a school-record 321 victories and most recently helped UW reach its first Final Four in 14 seasons. Of course, great players are needed to achieve great success. And Ryan certainly...

Frank Kaminsky named best returning player in College Basketball

Wisconsin basketball is riding a wave of unprecedented popularity following its run to the 2014 Final Four. However, pundits haven’t always been in love with the Badgers and so when CBS Sports’ Seth Davis named UW’s own Frank Kaminsky as the best returning player in College Basketball it was a little more than surprising. Kaminsky returning surprised some, including Davis....

Wisconsin Basketball: Duke visits Wisconsin for ACC/Big Ten challenge

On behalf of all fans of college basketball, I’d like to thank whoever scheduled this year’s ACC/Big Ten challenge. Last Thursday, the 16th annual challenge was laid out for all of us to drool over. Syracuse at Michigan, Ohio State at Louisville, Iowa at North Carolina, and the one we all wanted; Duke at Wisconsin. The basketball gods have answered our prayers. On December 3...

Wisconsin's Frank Kaminsky returning next season

Wisconsin Head Coach Bo Ryan is probably somewhere smiling right now. The Badgers will get big man Frank Kaminsky back for next season. Here is what he told Jeff Goodman: “It was a tough decision, but I think the best thing for me is to stay another year and develop even more. I made a commitment to the school and I don’t think I can turn my back on the people who have been...

Wisconsin Basketball: Aftermath of a Final Four loss

Emotions are at their purest once everything is sacrificed. Whether it’s the glory of victory, or anguish of defeat; one can truly understand these feelings once everything is invested. In sports, the greatest moments are created not just by the plays themselves, but by the reactions of the world around them. That’s why we love it; thats why I love it. I may be a microcosm in...

Crazily, Kaminsky has become face of Badgers, tournament

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The only word Frank Kaminsky can muster that adequately describes the past week of his life is "crazy," which barely seems to do his rise to near rock-star status justice. Owning the paint against Baylor's 7-foot-1 center Isaiah Austin with 19 points and six blocks in the Sweet 16? Crazy. Dominating Arizona's future NBA frontcourt with 28 points...

Wisconsin Basketball: Bo Ryan captures his Final Four

Alas, Bo Ryan has joined the ranks of the college basketball’s best. It only took him 13 years but hey, patience is a virtue. That patience of his sure was tested Saturday, as 40 minutes wasn’t enough to decide UW’s fate. After an added five minutes of cardio nightmare, Bo finally came to relief knowing that he had finally taken the Wisconsin Badgers to the Final Four. Bo...

Wisconsin Basketball: Badgers-Ducks game preview

As most expected, Wisconsin will face the Oregon Ducks today for a spot in the Sweet Sixteen. Thursday, the Badgers rolled past American by 40; their largest margin of victory all season. A dominating performance along with an arena full of red helped UW shake all tournament jitters. Oregon also cruised past a pre-depleted Brigham Young team. BYU lost key guard Kyle Collinsworth...

Kaminsky's huge strides leading Badgers' late surge

MADISON, Wis. -- When Frank Kaminsky arrived as a freshman at Wisconsin two years ago, he much preferred shooting a 3-pointer to banging in the post. The perimeter is not where you'd expect to find most 7-footers, and though Kaminsky's shooting touch was better than most, having an inside presence was an area he needed to improve to become an elite Big Ten big man. Much of...
