Bo Ryan expects tough test against Minnesota on Thursday

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin Coach Bo Ryan says Minnesota presents some real problems for his Badgers.

Wisconsin is coming off a huge 83-55 home win against Indiana on Saturday, but they dropped a tight one to Illinois on Tuesday and fell from No. 11 to No. 14 in the latest Associated Press poll released Monday.

Wisconsin (19-6 overall, 9-4 Big Ten) faces Minnesota in Minneapolis on Thursday. The Gophers swept Wisconsin last year.

Ryan says Minnesota still presents problems, especially in 6-foot-11 forward/center Ralph Sampson III and guard Lawrence Westbrook.
