Badgers turn attention to Spartans

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Wisconsin played Michigan State three times this season and lost all three times. The Badgers get one more crack, only now the winner gets to play for the national championship.

Coach Dick Bennett is blunt about what it means to be playing against coach Tom Izzo and the Spartans yet again.

"Pain … misery," Bennett said. "Once the game starts, I think we have the toughest opponent in America. We still have not been able to solve all of the problems they present."
