Bo Ryan and Wisconsin made the National Championship Game and lost to the Duke Blue Devils, while Lon Kruger and Oklahoma lost to eventual Final Four team Michigan State in the Sweet 16.
Now these two top 25 schools will play a home-and-home series starting this season in Norman, with the returning game in Madison happening in 2016.
The Badgers have lost Sam Dekker, Frank Kaminsky, among others, but return pick and pop man Nigel Hayes and solid point guard Bronson Koenig (and we all know how good Ryan is at developing his underrated players).
The Sooners have a strong returning core that includes possible preseason All-American Buddy Hield, James Woodard, defensive star Isaiah Cousins and underrated big man Ryan Spangler.
Expect a battle in the non-conference season for two years that will be must watch television.
