Maui 1: Early to bed, early to rise

You'll have to excuse the guys if a few of them have trouble focusing at practice today... they have a little something to look forward to. As I type this, Coach Ryan and his staff just got finished showing the team instructional clips from last night's win over Oakland. Now they're on the court working on preparations for Arizona in the first round of the Maui Invitational. Shortly after practice finishes, it's bed time for the Badgers.

Why the early shut-eye? How does a 3:30 a.m. wake-up call sound?

Beginning at 4:15 a.m. the Badgers will bus from Madison to Chicago, then fly to San Francisco, change plans and fly to Maui. A whirlwind travel day to be sure, but I'm guessing no one is feeling sorry us.

Check back regularly to UWBadgers.com and the men's basketball blog for updates, stories and photos from the trip.

Mahalo... I've got to get to bed.
