UW coach Bo Ryan on Monday addressed the change in approach at the free throw line for senior forward Ryan Evans, who will attempt shooting jump shots in an attempt to improve his accuracy.

"He shot it pretty well that way," Ryan said. "(Former NBA guard) Hal Greer had to learn how to shoot that way. He did it because he felt it was his best chance of making the shot. So Ryan’s tried that method and feels that right now that’s the best way to make the free throw.

"It’s not that unusual, to have a different style. A lot of guys have different styles. So whatever works, as long as he believes it."

The Badgers (19-8, 10-4 Big Ten), who moved up two spots to No. 17 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll and one spot to No. 16 in the USA Today coaches' poll, host Nebraska (13-14, 4-10) on Tuesday night at the Kohl Center. Tipoff is 8 p.m.
