Badgers Bo Ryan named Big Ten coach of the year
MADISON — For the third time in 12 seasons, Wisconsin Badgers basketball coach Bo Ryan has been named the Big Ten conference coach of the year.
Ryan was honored by the media and the coaches after leading UW (21-10, 12-6 Big Ten) to a tie for fourth place in the conference, despite losing Junior point guard Josh Gasser to a season-ending knee injury last October.
Badgers senior forward Jared Berggren was named second team All-Big Ten. Forward Sam Dekker was named to the All-Freshman team; he was also also an honorable mention selection, along with junior guard Ben Brust.
