MADISON, Wis. - The Wisconsin Badgers have been welcomed home to deafening cheers following their rousing run to the Final Four.

Several thousand fans wearing Wisconsin red turned out for the homecoming event on the team's floor at the Kohl Center.

The Badgers aren't nearly done. They've got a berth in the NCAA tournament regional semifinals next weekend in Arlington, Texas.

It is coach Bo Ryan's first trip to the Final Four in his 13 seasons leading Wisconsin. The veteran coach drew the loudest round of applause.

The team will get one more night to celebrate before practice resumes Monday afternoon.
