OMAHA, Nebraska (WKOW) -- Coastal Carolina is hoping to be the first 16-seed to beat a one-seed in tonight's game against Wisconsin. For one of the CCU Chanticleers, the game is extra personal.

Josh Cameron is from Racine, Wisconsin. While you may think he would go easy against his home state, think again. The senior says, "I've never been a Badger fan."

Number three has a little something extra to prove. "I felt like I had a good high school career, and I never heard from Wisconsin," says Cameron.

Friday night, he hopes to show the Badgers what they're missing. "It would definitely be a proud moment for my family and everybody back at home to be able to play against them and do well," says Cameron.

He has big hopes for his Chanticleers. "If I could witness any event in the future," says Cameron, "It would be our team making it to the sweet 16."

Tip off for the game between the Chanticleers and the Badgers is at 8:20 p.m. central time.
