The Kentucky Wildcats pursuit of perfection will continue this Saturday when they put their perfect 38-0 record up against Bo Ryan’s Wisconsin Badgers (35-3) in the NCAA National Semifinals at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
One can imagine the pressure that goes with not losing a single game, facing team after team looking to take them down.
By this point though, the Wildcats are probably using that pressure to their advantage. They’ve become battle tested as they head into the Final Four.
Bo Ryan knows what that’s like. Two of his four national title teams at Division-3 UW-Platteville went unbeaten. His 1994-’95 team finished 31-0 and his 1997-’98 team finished 30-0.
The Badgers lost to Kentucky in last years national semifinals, 74-73. They’ll be the team trying to knock Kentucky from the ranks of the unbeaten this Saturday.
