Wisconsin Women's Basketball Coach Sounds Off on College Players' Work Ethics

After Nebraska Cornhuskers guard Natalie Romeo put on a show against her team, Wisconsin Badgers coach Bobbie Kelsey praised the opposing star and used her big game as motivation for players around the country in a postgame rant.

Romeo led Nebraska to a 75-62 victory by putting up 30 points on 11-of-20 shooting, including 8-of-14 from beyond the arc. Kelsey hopes that Romeo's performance will catch the attention of other players around the country.

According to Coach Kelsey, the Badgers—and women's college basketball players in general—need to put their phones down and hit the gym if they want to shoot like Romeo. A jumper like that doesn't just magically form while players sleep.

"You can't nap your way to being a great shooter," Kelsey said. 

Kelsey's rant is bigger than sports. Athletes can certainly use the advice, but regardless of your occupation, the advice she gives can be applied to just about everyone.
