The Wisconsin Badger men’s basketball team will host Div. 3 UW-Oshkosh
tonight in an exhibition at the Kohl Center.
The Titans aren’t expected to keep things too close, but that doesn’t mean 1st year head coach Pat Juckem (pronounced Yuck-em) isn’t excited about the opportunity to play the Badgers.
Juckem is making his coaching debut for the Titans tonight. One might conclude that this is a tough way for Juckem to get his start. But Juckem is looking forward to the opportunity. It’s a chance for his players to play on the big stage at the Kohl Center.
Juckem said they look at this opportunity as a win regardless of the outcome.
It’s Bo Ryan, who won four National Titles at Division III Platteville, that is responsible for leading the charge which has allowed division 1 schools to play division 3 schools in exhibitions. It’s a warmup for the Badgers, but it’s a game that the Oshkosh Titans won’t forget for the rest of their lives.
