"[Washington coach] Lorenzo Romar and [Villanova coach] Jay Wright did a terrific job of coaching the select players in Las Vegas. It worked so well we’ve decided to bring to New York a smaller group of players from that Select Team to do the same thing. They were very valuable to us and it’s a great experience for them."

Wisconsin's Leuer out with fractured wrist


Wisconsin junior Jon Leuer will have surgery Tuesday to repair a fractured wrist suffered Saturday, the school has announced. There is no timetable for a return.

"Obviously, I’m disappointed by the injury, but I plan on being as big a part of this team as ever,” Leuer said. “I will continue to be at all the practices and conditioning sessions and support the team as best I can. I’m confident my teammates can continue the great season we’ve begun and I look forward to rejoining the team.”

Leuer injured his left wrist in the Badgers' 73-66 win over Purdue as he tried to brace himself during a fall. He had started all 16 games this season and was averaging 15.4 points and 6.2 rebounds. Wisconsin is ranked 15th in the latest Top 25 (and one).
