Wisconsin defeats Arizona - Final Four for Bo Ryan and the Badgers

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- One of them would bury the label forever, never again to be lumped in with the lot of great coaches with an asterisk after their names.
Wisconsin's Bo Ryan and Arizona's Sean Miller came into Saturday night's West Regional Final at the Honda Center high on the short list of coaches considered "The Best" without a Final Four on their resume. As much as they disagreed with the premise, as much as they claimed not to judge themselves by that standard, the label wouldn't go away, stuck to them like an annoying wad of bubble gum on the bottom of their polished black shoes.
Ryan was the one who finally scraped it clean Saturday night, care of a 64-63 overtime victory by the second-seeded Badgers that earned them a trip to play Kentucky or Michigan in Dallas next weekend, the school's first trip to the Final Four since 2000.

Four previous times Ryan's teams fell in the Sweet 16, and in 2005 the Badgers lost in the Elite 8. But they avoided that fate Saturday because Arizona's Nick Johnson failed to get a shot off in the final 2.3 seconds off overtime and because Wisconsin center Frank Kaminsky pivoted and pivoted, floated and chucked shots of seemingly all types, making enough to tally 28 points to go with his 11 rebounds.
"I'm extremely proud," Ryan said. "It's always about the players and what they went through to get to this point and to be able to feel the way they do now. So it should always be about the players, but I'm going to get one comment in: Today would have been my dad's 90th birthday."

HAMILTON: Four thoughts on emerging Final Four field
Yes, Ryan's breakthrough came, fittingly, on the birthdate of the late Butch Ryan, who died last August. Butch was a former teacher, coach and World War II veteran, and he and Bo were extremely close. For decades, the affable Butch accompanied Bo to the Final Four, taking the sting out of another season by the Badgers that fell short of the national semifinals with his jokes and his antics.
For Wisconsin and Ryan to finally head to the Final Four as a team the year after Butch's passing, "It was like this was orchestrated by Butch," Wisconsin assistant Greg Gard said. Now, instead of mourning the absence of his father at event they always attended together, Ryan will be pleasantly distracted by the task of coaching his team.
"What makes this so special is this whole thing with Butch," Gard said. "How ironic this happens on his birthday."
Said Ryan: "[My father] was always about the kids that he helped mentor growing up, and you know, that's why I do it, to see the faces of these [players], to see the genuine excitement."

Games are ultimately decided by players, but Saturday's matchup was such a titanic meeting between two coaches so well respected, and their teams were so well prepared, that it was a virtual certainty that no team would pull away, that the game would be decided by a handful of plays at the end.
An odd shot by Kaminsky with 2:21 remaining in overtime, a sort of pivot, pivot, pivot floater over Arizona's Kaleb Tarczewski, gave Wisconsin a 61-59 lead. Then two possessions later, Kaminsky tipped in a miss by Traevon Jackson to push the lead to three, 64-61.
"I was talking to Tarczewski during the game and I said to him, 'Isn't it tough to guard Frank?'" Wisconsin guard Sam Dekker said. "Tarczewski said he'd never guarded anyone like him ... Frank is just awkward. He just makes it awkward for people. That shot in overtime [over Tarczewski], it looked like he he coughed it up but that was just Frank getting a weird shot to go in."
Miller said he wouldn't have done anything different to defend Kaminsky, which is good, as that will leave one less "what if" for him and Wildcats fans to ponder during the offseason. What if Arizona hadn't lost Brandon Ashley, the talented, 6-foot-8 sophomore forward who tore a ligament in his right foot at the start of February? With him, Arizona reeled off 21 victories to start the season and looked like the best team in the country, owning the perfect blend of depth, strength and athleticism in the frontcourt to go with a bevy of talented guards. His absence forced Arizona to play a three-guard lineup more often, and it was easy to imagine how the bigger lineup with Ashley would have helped against Kaminsky.

BELLER: Kaminsky leads Badgers in overtime thriller
What if star freshman Aaron Gordon departs after this season, a virtual certainty? The Wildcats bring in the No. 1 small forward in the country, Victor Johnson from Fullerton, Calif., but he is no Gordon. Nick Johnson, the Pac-12 Player of the Year, might also decide to declare for the draft.
Pulled together, those questions create the greatest "what if" of all, which is: What if this was Arizona's best chance for a while to get to the Final Four?

Said Miller: "In this tournament, when you lose, it is like a car crashes. You are just done."
While another car drives on, to the Final Four, to the event where Bo and Butch have built memories on top of memories. One of those moments occurred at the 1994 Final Four in Charlotte, when Bo was still coaching Division III Wisconsin-Platteville. Butch arrived in his small Winnebago and, upon seeing all the other RVs with flags of schools playing in the Final Four, he took his orange Wisconsin-Platteville basketball sweatshirt, tied the sleeves to a pole, and flew it as a flag for all to see.

"If he was here he'd been in tears. He'd be crying," Gard said of Butch. "He'd be just like everyone else, dancing, hoping around and saying 'Let's go win two more.'"
Bo was slightly less expressive in his public comments and with his players, though he did have a few tender moments. "He gave me a huge hug, said, 'Come here, Sammie,'" Dekker said. "He may be hard on us and get on us, but he cares for us. He embraced me tight and said, 'I'm a proud of you and let's get to Dallas.'"

Charter’s digital upgrade sends customers to stores – What you should know

Customers need converter box for each TV they have

Published On: Mar 25 2014 06:48:52 PM CDT Updated On: Mar 26 2014 09:19:48 AM CDT
MADISON, Wis. -Dozens flocked to Charter Communication stores Tuesday to try and take care of issues they’re experiencing after the company started switching to all-digital signals.

On March 11, Charter began switching to all-digital broadcasting, leaving the analog age in southern Wisconsin behind. That change requires some viewers to use a converter box for each television they have.

Charter is providing one box for free for the first year. Company officials said 100 percent digital programming provides a better experience for customers. “That gives customers more than 200 high-definition channels, access to more than 10,000 On Demand programming, and by regaining that bandwidth, we’re able to increase Internet speeds,” Charter Regional Director of Communication Kim Haas said. Charter’s digital upgrade will continue through April. To ease the transition, they’ve extended hours at their offices.

Bo Ryan’s Epic Locker Room Speech After Win Over the Oregon Ducks in Milwaukee - 2014 March Madness

Wisconsin defeats Oregon, Next up Baylor - Badger News & March Madness Schedule


MILWAUKEE -- As an ear-splitting roar enveloped the arena, the Wisconsin Badgers pointed to their chests and strutted off the floor as if they had won a prize fight.
In a test of basketball tempos, Wisconsin delivered the knockout punch.
Ben Brust hit a 3-pointer with 1:07 left and the second-seeded Badgers returned to the Sweet 16 after overcoming No. 7 Oregon's transition game for a thrilling 85-77 win Saturday night in the NCAA tournament.
Trailing by 12 at the half, coach Bo Ryan's veteran squad didn't flinch.
"To be able to handle that smack in the face in the first half and come back and deliver one of our own says a lot about this group," Ryan said.

Brust's clutch 3 from the corner gave the Badgers (28-7) the lead for good in a clash of styles played before a boisterous pro-Wisconsin crowd at the anything-but-neutral Bradley Center.
Traevon Jackson followed Brust's shot with three free throws, but missed one with 21 seconds left to give the Ducks (24-10) one more chance to tie.

Oregon gave it to Joseph Young, who had made big shots all night and scored 29 points. But he missed a rushed 3 from the wing, and the Badgers sealed it at the foul line.
"That shot he took, no one questioned it," Oregon's Richard Amardi said about Young. "It looked good. Unfortunately it just didn't go it in when we wanted it."

The red-clad fans erupted in delight. Their beloved Badgers are back in the NCAA regional semifinals for the first time since 2012. They will play Baylor or Creighton in Anaheim, Calif., on Thursday.  "Once that momentum swung, we were in trouble," Oregon coach Dana Altman said.
Frank Kaminsky led the way with 19 points, Jackson finished with 16 and Brust had 12 -- all on 3-pointers.Left off-kilter by the Ducks transition game early and trailing by 12 at the half, the Badgers hustled back in the second half to answer the Oregon charge. After 19 points on the break in the first half, Oregon had nothing in transition after halftime. 

"Do you know how many fast-break points they got in the second half? Zero." Ryan said. "Oregon, one of the quickest teams in the country, so you've got to give the players a heckuva lot of credit."
The half court sets belonged to Wisconsin. The pace played more their liking.  Buckets in the lane by Kaminsky, a jump-shooting 7-footer, and coach Ryan's gritty guards set the tone inside, and later helped open up the perimeter.  "It's tournament time and no one wants to go home," Kaminsky said. "You're doing whatever you can to stay in. If that means being physical down low with anyone -- it's a battle."

Still, as had often happened during the night, Young had an answer. His 3 from the wing with 2:50 left gave Oregon a 75-74 lead.  The Badgers hustled for two offensive rebounds on their next possession. Off a timeout, Ryan re-inserted Brust, who was saddled with four fouls.
The senior delivered in a huge spot. Young couldn't deliver one last time.  "Do whatever it takes to not make it your final game," Brust said.

Jason Calliste had 20 points for Oregon, which set the tone early with in-your-face defense and an aggressive offense.  Wisconsin found its groove by attacking the basket, a plan that has worked all year long when the team has been having problems. Dekker added 12 points and eight rebounds in another typically balanced effort.  In the first half, it was Oregon dictating tempo by setting a breakneck pace.  The Ducks quieted the Wisconsin fans in a hurry, attacking at nearly every opportunity and flustering Wisconsin. The frustration peaked when the Badgers bench was whistled for a technical foul near the end of the first half after arguing a call.

Oregon pounced in the first 20 minutes. Sometimes it was Calliste driving to the bucket to draw fouls. Other times it was Young hitting mid-range jumpers.  Then Wisconsin found its way in the second half.

Despite the disappointing ending, Oregon had regrouped quite well since a midseason stretch of eight losses in 10 games.

"We didn't get stops and we didn't rebound," forward Mike Moser said. "Simple as that."

West side burglaries might be connected, police say - Madison, WI Home Security

Madison, WI - 

Madison police believe two burglaries and an attempted burglary on the city’s west side might be connected. A man called police at 7:51 p.m. Friday to report seeing two men attempting to break into his neighbor’s home in the 1400 block of Rae Lane.

The man told police he was able to scare them off. Police then found that a home in the 1700 block of Lynndale Road had entered but it wasn’t known if anything was taken. Another burglary was reported in the 6000 block of Piping Rock Road after 10 p.m. when the residents returned home and found jewelry missing.

 In both cases, the burglars got into the homes by kicking in garage doors. Police used a K9 to track the burglars but were not able to find them.

How to Paint a Room in 5 Easy Steps - Epic Painting Madison Contractor Tips

A painter applying tape between wall and baseboard

The idea of painting a room can sometimes be intimidating, but with these 5 easy steps, you'll see how simple it is to get great results. 

The correct sequence of steps is the key to giving any room a quick and refreshing paint makeover. Tip: Start with the ceiling first and then paint the walls.

Step 1 — Clean Ceiling and Walls
Remove dust, dirt, and grease spots (which can ruin a smooth finish) with water, a little mild dishwashing detergent, and a cellulose sponge. Rinse ceiling and walls with clean water to remove the soap residue.

Step 2 — Cut in Around Edges
Beginning at the corner of the room, use a two-inch or 2.5-inch trim brush to "cut in," applying a three-inch strip of coating along the perimeter where the wall and the ceiling meet.
Cut in a section at a time, alternating between cutting in and painting the ceiling to maintain a wet edge and prevent a visible line between the cut-in area and the rest of the ceiling.

Step 3 — Rolling the Ceiling
Before you begin painting the ceiling, remove excess paint on the roller by slowly rolling it back and forth over the ridges of the paint tray.
Start painting near the corner of the room, blending the coating into the ceiling line painted previously. Paint across the width of the ceiling, rather than the length, and make sure to roll in a motion across your body, rather than along your body, to avoid straining your neck and back.

Step 4 — Painting the Walls
Once your ceiling is dry, return to the spot where you began painting. Use a trim brush to carefully cut in along the wall-ceiling line. Extend out two to three inches from windows, doors, and moldings. Once you've cut in around an entire wall area, use a roller to fill in the field.
For efficiency, start in the corner of a wall and roll on a three-by-three-foot W pattern, then fill it in without lifting the roller. Continue in sections until you're finished. Paint one wall at a time.

Step 5 — Painting the Trim
Once the walls are completely dry, place painter's blue tape where the trim meets the wall. Paint the moldings, baseboard and the door and window frames with a two-inch angled brush. When painting your trim, paint the tops of the doors and windows first and work your way down so that you can remove any runs as you go. Paint your baseboards last.

Easy Color Makeovers for Your Outdoor Furniture - Madison Painting Contractor Tips

3 adirondack chairs painted yellow, blue, and white.

In less than a weekend, you can paint your exterior furniture in any of our thousands of colors to create an updated, fresh new look. Painting outdoor furniture pieces is an easy, fast way to transform and update the look of your deck or yard. Just follow these simple steps to achieve the best results.  

Surface Preparation The first step in painting outdoor furniture is to make certain that the wood is absolutely dry and free of mold and mildew. Be sure to check the undersides, too. If the old surface has mold or mildew, you can properly prepare the surface by using our premium cleaner with mildewcide, Benjamin Moore® CLEAN (318). For mild cases, you can mix up your own solution using one part of household bleach to three parts water. (It's best to do this outdoors or in a well-ventilated area.) Be sure to completely rinse the furniture and allow it to completely dry before applying paint or stain. If the weather is cold, move the furniture indoors to dry; in milder weather, it's enough to place the furniture in a garage, carport, or other shelter from the rain. Don't cover the furniture with plastic or a tarp, as that will not allow enough air circulation for thorough drying.  

Sanding The next step is to sand the surfaces to be painted. If the old finish is in fairly good condition, it's enough to just roughen the surface. Start with coarse-grade sandpaper, working with the grain. If you have an orbital hand sander, that is the perfect tool for this job. If the old finish is in bad condition, you may choose to remove all the old finish down to the bare wood. This can be accomplished with a quality wood stain remover such as Benjamin Moore REMOVE (315).

 Priming If the old painted or stained surface is still intact after sanding, you can skip priming. However, if you're going to apply a lighter color over a dark one, if the wood is exposed, if there are knotty sections, or if any stains remain, you should use a good primer formulated for outdoor use, such as Benjamin Moore's Fresh Start All-Purpose Acrylic Primer (023). Brush on the primer, working with the grain, using a good-quality Benjamin Moore Nylon/Polyester brush.  

Painting We recommend using Benjamin Moore's ARBORCOAT® Solid Deck & Siding Stain (640), which is available in any of our thousands of colors and is especially formulated to protect against weather and temperature extremes as well as UV rays. If you've primed the surface, one coat of stain will be enough. If you skipped the primer, you may want to apply a second coat. Let the furniture dry in a clean, dust-free, well-ventilated area. Don't leave it outside to dry, as wind and air will deposit dust and particles onto the wet surface. Once the furniture is dry, you're good to go. Situate your furniture where it won't be under a drip line from a roof or tree limb. An occasional light wash with dish detergent and warm water will help you enjoy your outdoor furniture for years to come.
