The 2015 Wisconsin basketball team is one that Badgers fans never will forget. Maybe some Big Ten fans, too. Not only does it own the second-best season in program annals, advancing to the national final, one year after making the Final Four, one would have a hard time finding a more charismatic group.
Before Matt Painter and Patrick Chambers faced off Saturday afternoon, the two head coaches had a fun interaction. While waiting for their customary pregame BTN interviews, the former began interviewing the latter, when BTN analyst Stephen Bardo handed Painter the mic to make it real. Painter knew what to do, and asked Chambers, “What would you think are going to be the keys against Purdue today?” Chambers’ response: “We’re going to need a good whistle today.” The interview had both coaches laughing out loud.
