Potrykus said that the Terps upset win over Wisconsin during the 2014-2015 season acclimated the Badgers to the atmosphere in College Park.
“It’s interesting because the UW who went there last year loved that environment,” Potykus said. “They said even though they lost that game, it was a great environment to play in and enjoyed the atmosphere, and the guys this year were prepped for it.”
Potrykus believes taking the crowd out of the game was a big key for Wisconsin this time around.
“Two things happened. One, they got off to a fast start, and once Wisconsin built a double digit lead, they took the crowd out of the game,” Potrykus said. “Maryland made some surges in the second half and the crowd got into it, but Maryland was never able to get the crowd enough, and Wisconsin had some answers to make that a quieter place than most people are accustomed to.”
Jeff Potrykus went in to talk about the Badgers adjustment from Bo Ryan to Greg Gard, their NCAA Tournament hopes, and much more.
