Badgers ready for Cal State Fullerton

first_imgBoRyan’s advice to his Wisconsin team as it prepares to face Cal State Fullertonin the first round of the NCAA tournaments: Don’t blink.Hedid. It wasn’t pleasant.“They’llget the ball up in a hurry,” Ryan said. “I was looking at one gamefilm today and I must have blinked, but they were laying it in at the other endafter a make. Must have been a slow blink.”Despitebeing Big Ten champions and ranked sixth in the nation, the Badgers will haveto stay alert to avoid an upset Thursday in Omaha, Neb.The14th-seeded Titans (24-8, 12-4 Big West) beat UC Irvine on Saturday night towin the conference tournament. Josh Akognon scored 23 points and was picked astournament MVP.No.3 seed Wisconsin (29-4, 16-2), beat Illinois 61-48 to win the tournament titleSunday, to go with its regular season championship.Ryanput his team through a light shooting workout Monday ? “no diving forloose balls, no chasing, no pinching, no rabbit punches,” he said ? but hesaid he saw plenty of shortcomings during the conference tournament that hisplayers will focus on when the heavy-duty workouts resume Tuesday.Lastyear, the Badgers were without injured leading rebounder Brian Butch and gotbounced by UNLV in the second round. But he has been healthy all this seasonand is averaging almost 13 points and seven rebounds a game.“Weknow we’ve got tough competition down the road,” Ryan said. “But theother teams playing us know they’ve got a team that’s going to battle them,too, and I like the group that I have going into these games.”last_img read more
