Badgers Upset Villanova in Second Round of NCAA Tournament

Badgers Upset Villanova in Second Round of NCAA Tournament

The game can be streamed online free with a cable subscription via NCAA March Madness Live. Monte Morris was terrific as he begins his final NCAA Tournament, leading Iowa State with 19 points. The team finished the season second in the Big Ten and second in the Big Ten Conference championship, falling to MI 71-56.

"My theory, you have to beat everybody anyway to win the whole thing". "I didn't want to just get there and take care of my parents for a year or two".

"I was feeling it a little bit", he said with a shrug.

"Ranking and seeding is very subjective. They basically played themselves out of playing (first-round regional games) in Milwaukee".

Wright looks for a low-scoring game, although he admits, "I wish it wouldn't be that way". The Badgers defeated the Hokies 74-72 in 2008. But Jay Wright's team is now back in the ranks of mere mortal teams. Then, after Notre Dame free throws, Koenig was stripped by Jackson, the same Koenig who hit the 3-pointer to beat No. 2 seed Xavier in the Round of 32.

Wisconsin now has five wins over No. 1 and No. 2 seeds in the last four years, the most in the country.

The Wildcats are close in all three departments, giving up 62.6 points per game (16th in the nation), allowing 41.6 percent shooting, and coming in at 11th in efficiency at 92.1 points per 100 possessions.

With the victory the Badgers improved their record to 27-9 and will next face the victor of Saturday night's matchup between No. 4 Florida and No. 5 Virginia.

"Hopefully, it should be a good amount of dunks for us, not for them, but we'll see how it goes". "We had some swelling on Sunday and Monday and it's come down a lot". "Of course this year we're not going to be able to sneak up on anybody like we did last year". Bridges leads in steals with 1.7 per game. They responded by blowing the doors off UCLA and Duke en route to a Final Four appearance.

Villanova also lost for the fourth time in eight years as a No. 1 or No. 2 seed to an opponent seeded No. 7 or lower. "And I think they know that, you know?"

The Wildcats topped the Mountaineers 76-56, sending them into the next round. That's a huge factor in so many games.

Koenig Hit 6 of 12 3-pointers and finished with 20 points in the 66-63 victory.

Wisconsin might not be championship bound, but they can't be slept on any further. Plus, they don't have a deep bench.

In each of Villanova's three losses, they struggled shooting from the outside. It is my senior year.

It was the third NCAA Tournament game for Marquette graduate transfer Katin Reinhardt with his third different program. That lack of experience and nerves could impact how well the team plays. "I think that's the biggest thing".

"I've embraced it", Robinson said of the constant height difference. They play Northwestern first. The Cavalier and Gators will tip off at 8:40 p.m. Saturday on TNT. The game will air on TBS. The game will air on CBS.
