Bill Scott spoke with Badger right wing Jim Johnston about the game that led to the Badgers’ first NCAA championship. “Being the first, it’s special. Especially considering that only four years prior we weren’t in the league,” said Johnston.
Johnston says the team owes a lot to its fans. He recalls, “We had in the stadium about 3,000 Badger fans. And they didn’t quit. They were there. They were screaming and yelling. We were down four, but they were there cheering us on.”
