Today is the annual "Make Bo Pay" event at Wisconsin. For several hours this afternoon and evening, Wisconsin students were invited to the Kohl Center to take some shots and help the fight against cancer.

For every free throw made, Badgers head coach Bo Ryan would donate $10 to Coaches vs. Cancer and the American Cancer Society. For every half-court shot made, the ante was upped to $100.

Several Wisconsin players got in on the act, including Vitto Brown and Riley Dearring.
