MADISON, Wis. - Former Badgers men’s basketball coach Bo Ryan was inducted Sunday night into the College Basketball Hall of Fame.
Ryan's head coaching career began at UW-Platteville. Ryan spent 14-plus seasons with the Badgers, winning a school-record 364 victories. His UW teams never failed to reach the NCAA Tournament, never finished lower than fourth in the Big Ten standings and won a total of seven Big Ten championships.
His team made a Final Four appearance in 2014 and a run to the national championship game in 2015.
The 2017 Hall of Fame Induction Celebration will take place Nov. 19 at the Arvest Bank Theatre at the Midland in Kansas City, Missouri. Ryan is one of eight that make up the Class of 2017, joining Wake Forest's Tim Duncan, Winston-Salem State's Cleo Hill, Indiana's Scott May, Purdue's Rick Mount, Creighton's Paul Silas, Gonzaga's John Stockton and Duke's Jay Williams.
