Here are the most important things John Beilein said on Friday afternoon (and why they matter).
Wisconsin is red hot
“Wisconsin, right now, is playing as good as anybody in the country. They could beat anybody in the country. Quote me on that. They could beat anybody, home or away, in the country right now. It looks like the Wisconsin teams — the names are different, (but) it’s the exact same (as the) teams that were winning championships over and over again. … We’re gonna have to play really well. Have to play probably better — have to play like we did in those Villanova and North Carolina games to get this win. And that’s our plan.”
