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.
Led by a pair of future NBA players, Frank Kaminsky and Sam Dekker, Wisconsin made headlines for its dominance on the court (36-4, Big Ten regular season champ, Big Ten postseason champ, West Region champ) and for its personalities off it.
During the NCAA tourney run, in fact, Wisconsin press conferences became must-see television. You never knew what you were going get from these goofy, carefree guys, from Kaminsky and the rest of the leaders sharing inside jokes to Nigel Hayes famously stumping a stenographer.
At 11 p.m. ET tonight, immediately following the Penn State-Wisconsin game, BTN will share the story of this memorable team on the debut of "Big Ten Elite: 2015 Wisconsin Basketball."
