Timberwolves guard Tyus Jones helped beat Wisconsin in the 2015 National Championship game, and Badgers fans haven’t forgotten.
The Minnesota Timberwolves played a preseason game against the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday at the Kohl Center, home of the Wisconsin Badgers.
Timberwolves rookie point guard Tyus Jones knows a thing or two about the Wisconsin Badgers—he led the Duke Blue Devils to a 68–63 victory over Wisconsin in April’s NCAA National Championship Game, earning tournament Most Outstanding Player honors.
Apparently, the wound it left in the hearts of Wisconsin fans is still fresh, because they booed him relentlessly Tuesday.
This may be the most intense booing a preseason game has seen in the past decade.
