Bo and the Badgers enjoying Final Four spotlight

ARLINGTON, Texas (WXOW)  The national media had definitely discovered Bo Ryan this Final Four week. But Ryan says just because he's made it to this point in his career, at a Final Four in division one, he's not going to change who he is, he's not going to change the way he runs a program. Ryan says he's the same coach as when he coached at UW-Platteville or even way back at Sun Valley High School in Pennsylvania.

"I'm the same person I was three weeks ago, a month ago. So for me, it's not what you think it is to me because of how I got into the profession. I was a teacher first in junior high and then they gave me a coaching job. I didn't do it the way most of the guys who are coaching now, I just happened to do it a different way. I get excited seeing a student get an 'A' on a test the same as seeing a player get better and perform well. So for me, I want you to put it on the players. I'm happy to be here and roam the sidelines," Ryan said during a news conference at the Final Four in Arlington, TX Thursday.

Ryan has his best offensive team at Wisconsin. All five starters are averaging over 32-percent from three point range and four of the five starters are averaging in double figures.

"We've gone out there and done some good things. It's nice to go through the lay up lines and look around and see all the guys I have on my team and say it could be his night, or his night or his night. So, we definitely do a good job of being efficient offensively and I love that we have a really unselfish group and we all care about each other, which makes it really fun to go out there and play with them," said senior guard Ben Brust.

Bo Ryan's team's have always been known for their physical and mental toughness. It's something that has caught Kentucky's attention.

"We've been informed that this is one of the better offensive teams that they've had. They can really score the ball, move the ball and they've always had a great coach so it'll definitely be a challenge for us," said Kentucky forward Julius Randle.
