Madison, Wis. - The Wisconsin Athletic Department hosted the 2010 Party in the Paint with the UW men's basketball team on Tuesday, Oct. 19 at the Kohl Center.
The event provided donors at the All-American, Champions and Hall of Fame Club giving levels the unique opportunity to watch the men’s team practice and prepare for the upcoming season. Guests watched practice from the Nicholas Suites, had the opportunity to tour the Badger’s locker room and took home a gift as a token of appreciation for their support.
After practice, Director of Athletics Barry Alvarez thanked those in attendance while also calling attention to the importance of private support. “We are a self sustaining department so your generosity is critical for our programs to achieve success.” Alvarez said.
Following Alvarez, head coach Bo Ryan thanked donors for their support and spoke about the team. He gave an overview of the upcoming season, discussed current players on the roster, and answered several questions from guests in attendance.
