Badgers basketball team's season remembered in "Make'Em Believe"

Posted: Updated:

 Before this past basketball season began for the Badgers, former player Zach Bohannon gave a notebook to the team's assistant director of athletic communications Patrick Herb.

"He said, 'If this season is as special as we think it's going to be, you're going to want to write a book about it,'" Herb recalled.

Bohannon proved prophetic in more ways than one. Herb, who has never written a book, just released "Make'Em Believe". The book details the journey this entertaining group took on the way to the national championship game. The 160-page read features more than 100 photographs. Herb also gives a glimpse at some private moments, such as Bo Ryan's pregame speech before facing Kentucky.

"His last line that he delivered to the team was, 'The promised land isn't promised. It's earned.' That kind of sets up that chapter of this book and how they went on to beat the undefeated Kentucky team. It's a moment that people will always remember where they were when they watched that game."

 "Make'Em Believe" will hit Madison bookstores on Wednesday. It is also available at: The retail price is $24.95
