INDIANAPOLIS - Wisconsin has Frank the Tank and Captain America, plus Nigel Hayes and his adorable obsession for stenography.

The fun-loving Badgers might be the most tight-knit team at the Final Four.

But once coach Bo Ryan whistles practice into session, it's all business for the Badgers.

"The Tank" refers to Frank Kaminsky, the player of the year candidate who leads Wisconsin's versatile frontcourt that also includes Hayes and Sam Dekker. Captain Josh Gasser is the take-charge defensive sparkplug on the perimeter.

The chemistry has developed over two seasons growing into one of the best teams in the country. Wisconsin has returned to the national semifinals with largely the same roster.

Kaminsky and Hayes are the lead jokesters. Instead of stifling personalities, Ryan says he lets guys feed off each other and enjoy themselves.
