Bo Ryan talks about the tournament.

(WNFL)- Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan says the NCAA Tournament is really a series of three two-game tournaments. And the goals remain the same each time -- to win and stay alive. Ryan is leading the Badgers to the Division-One Final Four for the first time, with a semi-final match-up against Kentucky tomorrow night. The 66-year-old Ryan has been asked this week whether he has reached out to other coaches to learn more about the Final Four experience, and how they got their teams ready for it. Ryan says people forget that he won four national Division-Three championships with UW Platteville in 1991, '95, '98, and '99 -- and whether it's D-One or D-Three, the pressures and the challenges are the same. Ryan said coaches have actually becoming to him this week to get tips on handling the hyped-up atmosphere. Wisconsin junior guard Josh Gasser says he and his teammates have not felt extra pressure -- and it's because of the way Ryan handles things. Gasser said the coach prepares for games the same way, whether it's in April or back in November.
