Badgers to honor 2000 Final Four team, wear throwback uniforms

It’s been 20 years since Wisconsin made its unlikely run to the Final Four. When that team is honored next month, the current team will be wearing the same uniforms those Badgers did in their push to Indianapolis.

Wisconsin announced Thursday it would wear throwbacks on Feb. 9 when Ohio State comes to town.

The Badgers entered the 2000 NCAA Tournament as the No. 8 seed in the West Region. All they did was beat No. 9 Fresno State, No. 1 Arizona, No. 4 LSU and No. 6 Purdue on their way to their first Final Four since 1941.
