University of Wisconsin Men’s Basketball Team Honored at Miller Park

Tonight the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team was honored on the field prior to the Milwaukee Brewers vs. New York Yankees game at Miller Park.

The Badgers posted a 30-8 record (.789) during the 2013-14 season and advanced to the Final Four in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2000. The Final Four appearance marked the school’s third-ever trip to the Final Four (won national championship in 1941 and reached semi-finals in 2000). Overall, Wisconsin won 30 games for the third time in school history.

Here’s a little glimpse of their afternoon.
