The first week of the NCAA Tournament has come and gone, and we have cut down the field to the Sweet 16. Northern Iowa, Stephen F. Austin and Middle Tennessee tried their best to play the role of Cinderella, but the clock has struck midnight on the mid-majors, as the Sweet 16 has turned into a battle of the college basketball big boys — including a record six ACC teams.
As arguably one of the nation’s top college basketball coaches, Wisconsin’s Bo Ryan announced that he would retire after this upcoming season. Ryan has been the team’s head coach since 2001, amassing a 357-125 overall record over that time. He has led his team to the NCAA Tournament every year, highlighted by two straight Final Four appearances. Thus, he hopes to continue his success in his 15th and final season as head coach.
In a rematch of last year's classic Final Four showdown, the Kentucky Wildcats and Wisconsin Badgers will collide at Lucas Oil Stadium on Saturday night, with a spot in the national championship game on the line.
