For the first time since 2005, the Wisconsin Badgers Men's Basketball team will play in a regional final.
The Badgers grabbed the lead 20 seconds into the game and never looked back en rout to a 69-52 win over Baylor in Anaheim, CA last night.
The Badgers will take on top seeded Arizona Saturday night after the Wildcats came from behind to slip by San Diego State. A win would send Wisconsin to the Final Four for the first time since 2000, when they were defeated by eventual champion Michigan State. That team was coached by Dick Bennett.
Junior center Frank Kaminski poured in 19 points to lead the Badgers. Senior Ben Brust added 14, including three three-pointers. Kaminski added 6 blocked shots as the Badgers improved to 29-6 on the year.
You can hear the Badgers game against Arizona on Saturday night on 99.7 FM. with Matt Lepay and Mike Lucas on the call. Tip off is scheduled for 7:49 CDT
