ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) – They play the same game, though they come at it from opposite sides of the court.
Kentucky has a coach, John Calipari, labeled a renegade, a rotating stable of McDonald’s All-Americans and sky high expectations every year.
Wisconsin has a coach, Bo Ryan, who has stayed firmly in one state for three decades, a lineup filled with juniors and seniors and an aw-shucks attitude about its first trip to the Final Four in more than a decade.
They meet Saturday in the national semifinals — the One-and-Done Wildcats (28-10) two wins from the program’s ninth national title and the Badgers (30-7) making their first trip this far in the tournament since 2000.
The winner will face either Florida or Connecticut in the final Monday night.
