Hughes, Bohannon Give Badgers Tournament Edge

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- It's perhaps the most oft-repeated nugget of conventional NCAA tournament wisdom, and it bodes particularly well for Wisconsin this year: Experienced guard play can be a decisive edge.

The Badgers start one of the tournament's most experienced guard tandems, seniors Trevon Hughes and Jason Bohannon. Going into Friday's first-round matchup with Wofford, both must excel if the No. 4-seeded Badgers are to make an extended run this month.

Hughes hit an overtime game-winner against Florida State last year. And when the two struggled, so has Wisconsin.

Now given one more chance to play in the tournament, Bohannon and Hughes say they're looking to create a few more highlights.
