HURRY UP TO WAIT.
THAT IS THE FEELING FOR THE BADGERS AND THE FANS.
JUST WAITING FOR TOMORROW FINAL FOUR GAME WITH KENTUCKY.
BUT HEY AT LEAST WE ARE LESS THAN 24 HOURS AWAY.
SPORTS DIRECTOR JAY WILSON JOINS US NOW WITH MORE
ON THE TEAM'S FINAL PREPARATIONS.
IT'S T-MINUS 22 HOURS AND COUNTING FOR THE BADGERS
IN THE FINAL.
THEY'LL TIP WITH KENTUCKY JUST BEFORE 8 O'CLOCK TOMORROW
NIGHT BEFORE AROUND 80-THOUSAND FANS AT A.T.
WE GOT TO SEE THE BADGERS ON THE COURT FOR THE FIRST
TIME HERE IN TEXAS THIS AFTERNOON AS ALL THE TEAMS
WENT THROUGH THEIR 50-MINUTE PRACTICE SESSIONS.
KENTUCKY IS ABOUT A TWO-POINT FAVORITE IN THE GAME,
BUT YOU CAN FIND A LOT OF FOLKS THAT GIVE WISCONSIN
A GREAT CHANCE TO WIN.
AND THE BADGERS THEMSELVES ARE CONFIDENT.
We're a versatle team.
We like to share the ball.
Very confident in one another, I get on guys when
they pass up shots.
They get on me in the same types of ways.
Get a win over those guys.
I've been working for that.
Frank and all these guys are working for that too.
We respect Kentucky very much, and we see them as
one of the best teams in the nation.
I think we've been playing our best basketball of
the year, so people can say we look like this or we
look like that, or we look like a bunch of white guys,
but it doesn't matter at the end of the day.
NOW, BACK TO THAT BIG FOOTBALL STADIUM THEY'LL BE
PLAYING IN TOMORROW.
WHEN THE PACKERS BEAT THE STEELERS IN SUPER BOWL 45,
THEY PUT 103-THOUSAND FANS IN THERE.
TOMORROW, THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE AROUND 80-THOUSAND
AND A LOT OF THOSE FANS WILL BE MESMERIZED BY THE
60-YARD WIDE VIDEO BOARD THAT IS THE SHOWPIECE OF
THE STADIUM IS SOMETHING BOTH TEAMS NEED TO GET USED
THE BADGERS FRANK KAMINSKY SAYS IT'S WEIRD PLAYING
BASKETBALL IN A FOOTBALL STADIUM.
frank: uh name the last time a basketall player played
in front o 90,000 people that is outside the final
four? I know back home I feel like the kohl center
is huge and that is 16,000 seats its almost over kill
to a point where how big it is you can look all over
the place and i cant even see the 4th deck my vision
is not that great its just going to be different for
us and it will be a little bit of an adjustment period
but thank god we have a couple of practices out there
MAYBE THAT'S A SIGN OF GOOD LUCK.....
AND THEN AT THE VERY END, A FUNNY MOMENT AS BEN BRUST,
WHO'S HAD HIS TROUBLES DUNKING IN THE PAST, GOT A
LITTLE BOOST FROM KAMINSKY TO COMPLETE THE BADGERS
50 MINUTES ON THE FLOOR..
IT'S ALMOST HERE.
THE BADGERS IN THE FINAL FOUR AGAINST KENTUCKY.
THEY'LL TIP JUST BEFORE 8 TOMORROW NIGHT T.B.S.
AND IF THE BADGERS WIN, THEY'LL PLAY FOR THE NATIONAL
CHAMPIONSHIP ON CHANNEL 3 MONDAY NIGHT.
EMILY, BACK TO YOU IN MADISON.
