Freshmen helping No. 3 Wisconsin roll

Posted:
MADISON (AP) -

A pair of talented freshmen have exceeded expectations for Wisconsin, quelling coach Bo Ryan's preseason concerns by helping the undefeated Badgers climb to a No. 3 ranking.

"Will youth be served or will the youth get served? I don't know. We'll have to wait and see," Ryan said at the team's preseason media day.

So far, the youngsters seem to be all right.

On a team that has just one senior in the rotation, freshmen Nigel Hayes and Bronson Koenig have come on to help the Badgers to a 16-0 start, the best in school history.

Wisconsin, 3-0 in the Big Ten and a half-game behind first-place Michigan State, travels to Indiana (11-5, 1-2) on Tuesday.
