MADISON, WI (WSAU) Bobbie Kelsey will begin her second season as the Wisconsin women’s basketball coach tonight, when the Badgers host U-W La Crosse in an exhibition game. Wisconsin went 9-and-20 a year ago. Kelsey says things have been more relaxed this time, mainly because the coach and the players know more about what to expect from each other.
Wisconsin has two exhibition games against Division-Three schools – and Kelsey says she’ll use them to test different lineup combinations while trying to get the offense into a rhythm.
The Badgers have five freshmen on their squad. Their opponent tonight, La Crosse, return five players from a team that went 16-and-10 a year ago.
