Hustle opportunities

Wisconsin basketball coach Bo Ryan on how the Badgers -- who couldn't get the ball to drop in the first half -- overcame a 4-point halftime deficit against Iowa through aggressive rebounding and went on to defeat the Hawkeyes, 74-62, at a sold-out Kohl Center in Madison.
"Hustle opportunities," UW coach Bo Ryan said. "They're there for anybody to get it, if they keep the right position and keep working hard. People always say, 'Well the ball doesn't bounce our way.' But in life, I mean what are you going to do, wait for things to come to you? So we just treat an offensive rebound as grabbing life by the horns and riding it. Our guys got some of those."
"Grabbing life by the horns" -- here's hoping they hold on and keep riding it.
