Driving through the snow globe

While the "snowstorm of the decade" might be crippling the Madison area, the Wisconsin men's basketball team stayed a few steps ahead of the posse Tuesday. Just as the forecasted blizzard was beginning to blanket the state capital, Bo Ryan and the boys boarded a Badger Bus bound for Green Bay.

The schools, churches and taverns might be closed on Wednesday (OK, scratch that, the taverns never close), but rest assured the Badgers' game vs. the Green Bay Phoenix should be played as scheduled. After a slightly-longer-than-normal trip, the UW men's hoops team pulled into its hotel in the Green Bay area in time for a 6:30 p.m. practice at the Resch Center Tuesday night. Check out video highlights from practice.

Just heard the University is closed tomorrow... wow, glad we made it.

The team went through a two-hour workout on the court they will play on tomorrow, working against the scout team's Green Bay offense and defense.

Coming off a 3-for-4 game from 3-point range vs. Grambling, Jason Bohannon might be catching fire. Another sign was the alley-oop pass he threw for Ryan Evans at practice tonight that he swished through the rim. Still counts for three points.

A few impressions of the Resch Center...

The building's concourses look like a mini model of the Kohl Center. Complete with matching pillars, windows and even the angled signs that indicate the sections. This is a nice arena for a mid-major school like Green Bay. I haven't seen many of the other Horizon League buildings, but this has to be among the best. The overhead scoreboard looks just like the one from the UW Fieldhouse; the one that was moved to the Kohl Center when it first opened. According to Green Bay's game notes, they have already sold more than 9,700 tickets for tomorrow night. The largest crowd in Resch Center history is 9,705 when UW came here in 2002. Tony Bennett's No. 25 jersey looks good hanging in the rafters. His is the only retired number.
