The basketball Cats are loving life right now.
Hard work in practice this week in preparation of Wisconsin for sure, but it is fun to be one of only four teams left in the big dance.
Coach Cal made a reference to being wheeled in to practice in a casket the other day.
He claimed he popped out to say "We ain't dead yet, boys!" to the team.
Turns out, despite Willie Cauley-Stein's absolute confirmation it did happen, that it did not.
But the message was made clear to the team that this season wasn't over and still isn't.
For the players takes on Cal's casket reference, check out the video.
