It has warmed up today in Madison — a balmy 35.

UPDATE: This interview with Robyn Ah Mow is from Wednesday night. Below, a team warmup at Wisconsin.

UW Fieldhouse very cool old school (literally). If you are in the area, it’s open practice for the public.
Nebraska 3:30-5 p.m. and Hawaii 5:15-6:45 p.m. Press conferences for Hawaii starts at 4:45, Nebraska at 5:15. No live video links.

    A little disappointing that Hawaii is the only non-power 5 school left. Then again on the bright side Hawaii is the last non-power 5 school still standing

    1. There are two non-P5 teams still alive. The other, Cincinnati, faces Penn State tomorrow.

    On another note, I’m glad they changed the out of bounds area of the UW Field House court from eye-bleed red to soothing NCAA blue for the regional.

    Ah Right, I keep forgetting Cincinnati is a non Power 5 school

    Watched Nebraska’s and Wisconsin’s press conferences. Is there a way to watch Hawaii’s?

    #2…I don’t think WIsconsin had a choice. The Sports Court is supplied by the NCAA and they don’t let the home team pick what color they want. I remember a few years back when UH hosted. They had blue sports court too.

    There was no video link for UH or Nebraska
    They only did Wisconsin and Texas A&M.
    They also only gave out transcript of UW snd TAMU
    Press conferences
    Still waiting for UH and NU quotes from 4 hours ago
    Was unaware that there was a video of Nebraska.
    Wisconsin SID said they weren’t doing one for either Hawaii or Nebraska.

    Sport court is the mandated NCAA blue
    Regional hosts don’t have choice

  8. Cindy Luis December 12, 2019 5:28 pm

    Cincinnati remains
    As have mentioned before that the odds are against smaller conferences
    NCAA often Pitts two against each other in opening rounds
    Example is Hawai’i subregion 3 small conference champions and 1 pac12

    9. thank you for link. was just about to post
    There was no video through Wisconsin which is not supposed to happen. This is supposed to be considered a neutral site and all teams are supposed to be treated equally.
