Kendall Marshall has nice things to say these days about Jordan Taylor, the Wisconsin point guard who will lead the ninth-ranked Badgers into the Smith Center tonight against Marshall and No. 5 North Carolina.
But when Marshall first met Taylor? That was a different story. They encountered each other for the first time last summer, at a Chris Paul basketball camp.
"When I first met him, my first thought was to hate him," Marshall said on Tuesday. "Being that we play the same position, people are going to compare us."
