Wisconsin head men's basketball coach Bo Ryan has been selected to receive the Adolph Rupp Cup as the National Coach of the Year.
Ryan led the Badgers to a school record 30 wins (30-6) and the first No. 1 ranking in school history.
The award will be presented to Ryan in Atlanta on March 29 at the start of the NCAA Final Four.
In addition to becoming just the 13th team in Big Ten history to reach 30 wins, the Badgers' 13 conference victories were also a school record. UW was ranked in the top 10 for 17 weeks, including 12 weeks in the top five. From Nov. 25 thru Jan. 28, Wisconsin won 17 consecutive games, the longest single-season streak in school history and tied for the third-longest in the country this season.
