It's a thrill for Will Hudson, as Grizzlies head to Wisconsin
“As soon as they announced it, all my boys were texting me to get some tickets. It’s definitely special to get an opportunity to go do this,” Hudson said.
“A lot of them are loyal to following me and supporting me. They’ll be up there.”
The location also works out well for many of Oakland’s fans who would not have been able to make a trip to the West Coast. Hudson was quite excited about his return to the Bradley Center, the site of Friday’s first-round matchup, where the Grizzlies go in as the 14th seed.
“We’ll have a good fan base there to say the least. I love that court, I played there in high school. This is the opportunity of a lifetime right here, playing in the NCAA tournament and going back to my home state,” Hudson said.
Oakland coach Greg Kampe made good on a recruiting promise made to Hudson in regards to playing a game in his home state when the Grizzlies visited the Badgers at the Kohl Center in November.
