Young Badgers basketball team gets ready for season


Augustana College out of South Dakota comes to Madison a week from Saturday.

That's who the Badger men's basketball team will play in its exhibition opener on November 1st at 7 p.m.

Yes, it's almost basketball season..

That means another slam-dunk 30 win season for the badger men, right?!

Well, the Badgers have had two in a row, but this year, 11 of the 17 players are either freshman or sophomores

Gone are Brian Butch, Greg Stiemsma and Michael Flowers.

Bo knows where his team stands.

"Yeah, we're young. I measure a veteran team by who is out there on the floor when the game is on the line. Maybe we have 3 or 4 of those guys. So, yeah, I would say we're young if you have 11 guys in their first or second year of competiton," Ryan says.
