Big Ten Geeks: Narrative no more

Up until Saturday, plenty of college basketball fans appreciated Bo Ryan’s coaching ability in a patronizing, half-insulting kind of way. Yes, he’s a fantastic Big Ten coach, that much is beyond dispute. But… This statistically-bland fact fed all sorts of terrible sports narratives. Bo Ryan can’t get to the Final Four because he doesn’t recruit enough talent. Bo Ryan can’t get to the Final Four because his slow-down style of basketball is a parlor trick exposed by elite teams. Bo Ryan can’t get to the Final Four because referees outside the Big Ten don’t fall for his sideline pleas and

Final Four bound: Wisconsin welcomes home Badgers

Wisconsin welcomed home its Final Four-bound Badgers on Sunday afternoon. The Badgers, who advanced to their first Final Four since 2000 with Saturday night’s thrilling overtime victory over Arizona, were introduced to the crowd and thanked the fans during a short ceremony at the Kohl Center. Watch the introduction of the West Region champs here and hear from Bo Ryan and West Region Most Outstanding Player Frank Kaminsky in this post.

Photo: Bo Ryan delights with classic picture

There’s a picture of Bo Ryan that is all over social media Sunday, and for good reason. On the plane headed home to Madison following Saturday night’s exciting Final Four-clinching overtime win over Arizona, Ryan flashes the team’s recently adopted hand symbol at the camera. If it looks familiar, it should. So classic. See the picture of Ryan in this post.

Congrats, Coach! And then, there’s this glorious side-by-side

Dienhart: Badgers punch their Final Four ticket

Frank Kaminsky was on fire. The big fella was balling like he owned the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. Shooting, spinning, driving, dunking, posting up and dominating. It was impressive. When the smoke had cleared, the 7-0 junior had scored 28 points with 11 rebounds. Kaminsky was simply unstoppable. But more vital: The No. 2 Badgers are headed to the Final Four with a 64-63 overtime win vs. No. 1 Arizona in the West Region final.

Wisconsin edges Arizona, earns spot in Final Four

(AP) Wisconsin bumped and grinded its way into the Final Four. Frank Kaminsky had 28 points and 11 rebounds for Wisconsin, rallying the Badgers to a 64-63 overtime victory against Arizona in the West Region final Saturday night. The Badgers (30-7) advanced to their first Final Four appearance since 2000 on Saturday night, and first for 69-year-old coach Bo Ryan, who earned his 704th career victory. Nick Johnson had the ball with a chance to win, but he missed a shot that came just after the buzzer for Arizona (33-5), the top-seeded team that has yet to win a West

Elite Eight preview: No. 2 Wisconsin vs. No. 1 Arizona

(AP) Sean Miller has been on Bo Ryan’s radar since the mid-1970s. That’s when the future Arizona coach came to Madison, Wis., for the first time at Ryan’s behest. Miller was a 9-year-old hot shot point guard, and Ryan was a Wisconsin assistant looking for some juice to enliven a night designed to drum up interest in Badgers basketball. He called up Miller’s father, a coach who agreed to send his son from Beaver Falls, Pa., to help out. The young Miller donned a Superman cape made by one of the coaches’ wives and showed off his ball handling and

Big Ten Geeks: In the Zone

Wisconsin is one win away from Bo Ryan’s first-ever Final Four after destroying Baylor last night. The Badgers scored 1.11 points per possession, and frankly, it should have been higher. Baylor largely stuck to its zone all night long, but what a strange zone it was. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a zone where four players are on one side of the court—the side without the basketball: Baylor's zone D. Spacious.
