The Wisconsin Badgers ended the Kentucky Wildcats' attempt at a perfect season when the Madison crew rallied for a 71 to 64 victory over Kentucky in the NCAA men's basketball Final Four in Indianapolis.

The University of Wisconsin will go on to face the four-time champions Duke University in tonight's title game.

Now everyone knows that Minnesotans and Wisconsinites share a friendly rivalry; sure, we tease each other, but don't we tend to tease those we love?

That's why we're thinking about Wisconsin as we're considering today's Coffee Break. There are a lot of great bands from the Badger State, and what better way to cheer on our neighbors in tonight's title game than by spinning tunes by Wisconsin bands?

So for today's 9:30 Coffee Break, what songs by Wisconsin artists do you want to hear? Send us your requests.
