MADISON, Wis. (AP) It's best to get the question out of the way quickly: Yes, the Wisconsin Badgers are hungry to get back to the Final Four.
Anything otherwise would have veteran coach Bo Ryan finding a way to get his team aiming for it. Going into his 43rd year in the profession, Ryan has one accomplishment still missing on his resume - a Division I national championship.
"Whether it's my 43rd year or not - Wow, I get another opportunity. Isn't this something?" Ryan, who coached Wisconsin-Platteville to four Division III titles in the 1990s, said Tuesday at Wisconsin's media day. "So I'm pretty fortunate, to have guys like this that are hungry."
