The Wisconsin Badgers are in Los Angeles for their Sweet Sixteen game versus the North Carolina Tar Heels at 7:47 eastern time tonight, and the Badgers are lucky enough they get to use the Lakers locker room inside of Staples Center. Wisconsin Forward Nigel Hayes is a big Kobe Bryant fan, and you could most likely guess which locker Hayes ended up getting, and he was really happy about getting the locker.
Nigel Hayes says he will sleep in the locker so he can “absorb Kobe’s magic power”. Kobe Bryant saw Nigel Hayes in his locker, and gave the Wisconsin Badgers a shout-out via his Twitter.
