Bo Knows Basketball: Wisconsin's Head Coach Wins His Way

The Stylistics, the Supremes and Barry White aren't talking points one might expect from Bo Ryan. It is, after all, a Tuesday in early March and three days away from the Badgers beginning Big Ten Tournament play. But sitting in the Wisconsin basketball coach's corner office, the 67-year-old seems remarkably at ease, reminiscing at this moment about the sounds of the Sixties ("In high school, all of our music – everything – was Motown," he says). And that's telling, because after last year's breakout run to the Final Four, Ryan is back with arguably the most talented team he's had at Wisconsin; one of the few in the NCAA tournament field with the goods to take down undefeated Kentucky.
