    Bo Ryan Retiring After the Season

    Monday’s major news in college hoops is simply this: Bo Ryan is likely entering his final season as Wisconsin’s coach. Ryan released a statement that revealed he openly debated retiring this past spring, but after discussions with his athletic director, he took some time to think it over.
