Badgers hold open practice in St. Louis Thursday, prep for Pittsburgh

Posted: Updated:

ST. LOUIS (WKOW) -- The Wisconsin men's basketball team took the floor Thursday afternoon at the Scottrade Center in downtown St. Louis, the site of their first NCAA Tournament game on Friday night at 5:50 against Pittsburgh. In 2015, during their run to the national championship game the Badgers became the media darlings, due to their off court shenanigans. This season as a seven-seed the Badgers say they're still having fun, but they are also focused, coming off two straight losses.

When Wisconsin takes the court Friday night, it will have been eight days since their loss to Nebraska in the Big Ten Tournament. The Badgers said the time off allowed them to heal some bumps and bruises, but it also gave them a chance to reflect on their last two losses, readying themselves for Pittsburgh.

Tip time is 5:50 pm Friday on TNT.
