Badgers talk video games and pinball before taking off for the Final Four

The UW Wisconsin Badgers Men's Basketball team kept is light and joked often during a Tuesday afternoon press conference.

They head off for Indianapolis Wednesday to face Kentucky in the Final Four of the NCAA Basketball Tournament on Saturday.

They said they were proud of their accomplishments but hungry for more.

They said despite being jovial, they were focused on Kentucky.

Coach Boy Ryan said he had scouted Kentucky for awhile, noting that this is a different team from last year. 

While Frank Kaminsky joked about being the best video gamer in the locker room, Coach Ryan topped them all by claiming to be a pinball wizard.

\"I was the number one pinball player in the state of Pennsylvania,\" declared Ryan. \"And these guys talk about video games? I could freeze flippers better than anyone. I could hit the clown's nose or the spinner..I could take a dime and play for two hours. Now what's that tell you?\"

On Wednesday at 5 p.m. there will be a fan pep rally at the Kohl Center.
