 MADISON, Wis. (WKOW) -- The Badgers will play their home opener Friday night at 7 p.m. against Miami at the UW Fieldhouse.

Prior to the game, UW will unveil its 2013 national championship runner-up banner.

This year's team is off to a 5-0 start and ranked fourth in the country.

Head coach Kelly Sheffield says his squad has done a great job of avoiding any hangups on last season's successful tournament run.

"To be honest with you, we haven't talked about last year once," said Sheffield. "Once we started our first day of practice, it's all been about this year. I would say that our team is confident; there's a deep belief that big things can happen.

"I think it's how hard we work," said senior outside hitter Courtney Thomas. "Our team works hard. Kelly  is a great coach and he's got a great staff behind him. They push us every day, as hard as we can go. And his expectations are really high for us. So, I give a lot of credit to him, and I give a lot of credit to my teammates. We're playing at a high level right now."
