Wisconsin has one of the best student sections in the country and they backed that up this week by selling out their season ticket allotment in three minutes.
The new record time could come in-part because senior forward Nigel Hayes made a bet with students on Twitter.
If Wisconsin’s students purchased all 2,100 student season tickets in less than five minutes Hayes and senior guard Bronson Koenig — who never backed up Hayes’ bet, it should be noted — would buy all of them a donut.
Since Wisconsin’s students did their part, it looks like Hayes is going to have to buy a lot of donuts to pay up his end of the bet.
With most of last season’s Sweet 16 team returning, Wisconsin is a consensus preseason top 25 team as they’ll be one of the major contenders in the Big Ten this season.
