Badgers Upset Villanova in Second Round of NCAA Tournament

Posted March 19, 2017

How did Badger fans feel about the seeding?

Wisconsin plays with its typical defensive prowess, a trait cultivated under Dick Bennett; refined under Bo Ryan; and now overseen by Greg Gard.

"I even mentioned to the guys having to being willing to die for the opportunity to play in a national championship", Hayes said. "I've served my time". How the committee made their picks (maybe RPI and strength of schedule over KenPom and other metrics), I'm not sure.

All five Wildcats starters were in double figures and the team shot 58.1 percent from the field.

Asked to explain it all a few years ago, when Wichita State made a surprise run to the Final Four, Bill Raftery of CBS said AAU and summer leagues have leveled the playing field by making everyone familiar to everyone.

#12 Princeton 58 #5 Notre Dame 60: The first game of the tournament nearly ended in a massive upset, but the Fighting Irish enjoyed a bit of luck as they saw the Tigers miss two go-ahead shots, losing their composure by taking long 3's instead of closer shots. "But let's hope we learn from those games". What would you do if you were the Wildcats?

"You can definitely say I was looking for my shot", Koenig said. His footwork inside and ability to get to the rim for easy bunnies makes him the clear focal point for any defense. The Badgers are really good this time of year, except for that time last March against Notre Dame when they weren't. Either turnovers would be committed by the big man, or he'd pass out to his teammates on the perimeter. Down the stretch in the opening round, it was Koenig, who made a school record eight 3-pointers against Virginia Tech, and Hayes who made the difference. On their first possession of the game, guard Justin Bibbs splashed a three-pointer and was fouled in the process. And when they fell to the Bulldogs for a second time, they shot just 25 percent from behind the arc. "They don't get too low".

Hart, doubled on a drive under the basket, traveled with 47.5 seconds left.

"He seemed like he was OK when I talked to him over the last couple days, but Khalil is a tough read", Gard said. 'This is a very well-coached team with great size that has won a lot of games, not just in the regular season, but in the NCAA Tournament.

Koenig scored a game-high and a new career-high 28 points for the Badgers, which was an impressive 33% of the team's total points. Here are Wisconsin's past four NCAA runs: Final Four, title game loss, Sweet 16 loss and now another Sweet 16. Please settle the debate once and for all.

"I think my four years have given me a lot of insights into the college game", stated Hart. That was a term starting to be used right as I was about to graduate. The last three years it was the following: Middle Tennessee, as mentioned earlier, was a no. 15 seed when they beat no. 2 seed Michigan State, in 2015 it was the no. 11 seed Dayton Flyers who knocked off the no. 6 seed Providence Friars, and in 2014, no. 12 seed Harvard upset no. 5 seed Cincinnati.
