The University of Wisconsin raised the Final Four banner to the rafters and the players from the 2013-14 team received their Final Four rings in a pregame ceremony at the Kohl Center last night.
What followed was another strong defensive showing by Bo Ryan’s 3rd ranked Badgers. They rolled to an easy 62-31 win over Northern Kentucky.
Frank Kaminsky scored 16 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, while teammate Sam Dekker added 15 points as the Badgers opened their season with a win.
The 31 points allowed is two points off of a program record 29, which was recorded twice previously. The 31 points allowed matched the fewest points a Bo Ryan team has given up during his coaching tenure at Wisconsin.
The Badgers struggled from the 3-point line, where they made just 4 of 17 from the field.
The Badgers return to the court on Sunday at noon against Chattanooga.
