Badgers men's basketball having historic season

Badgers fans have a lot to cheer about this season.

For the first time in school history, the men's basketball team is a number one seed in the NCAA Tournament

The Badgers will take on Coastal Carolina on Friday in Nebraska.

Tickets are already on sale for the big game.

Chances are good for the Badgers, as a number one seed has never lost their first game in the tournament.

Governor Scott Walker says he would like to see them go all the way in the tournament.

"With the Wisconsin Badgers ranked first in the West in the NCAA tournament, our hopes are obviously they get back the Final Four and we'd love to have a national championship for Bo [Ryan] and his team," Walker said. 

Several Wisconsin stores are looking to cash in on the Badgers' success.

Madison top company is busy printing t-shirts to try and keep up with demand.

They are printing two styles. One celebrates the Big Ten Championship, the other highlighting the team's number one seed in the tournament.

Fans could see the t-shirts on store shelves are early as Monday.
