There's still something in life for the people who persevere

Great quote from Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan when asked about the 9-point, 8-rebound, 6-steal game senior Joe Krabbenhoft had in the Badgers' win over Ohio State last weekend (UW's fourth straight win after losing six consecutive games last month).

According to this article, "what this line doesn’t show is the work he puts in behind the scenes. Ryan points to the effort Krabbenhoft puts in during practice and how that attitude translates to the game. Ryan believes that it is Krabbenhoft’s desire that allows him to excel game in and game out."

There’s still something in life for the people who want things, and will persevere, and aren’t easily deterred. There is that element of perseverance that separates a lot of people.”
