Villanova Wildcats vs Wisconsin Badgers

Villanova Wildcats vs Wisconsin Badgers

As a result, Tech had to adjust and put an emphasis on defending the inside, which left Wisconsin shooters wide open beyond the arc. These are three Wildcat teams who I see making it to Phoenix for the Final Four.

He's not ready for his run to end.

The No. 8-seeded Wisconsin Badgers pulled off the upset on Saturday when they defeated the reigning National Champions and top-seeded Villanova Wildcats, 65-62, eliminating them from the tournament.

Following a shocking upset of defending champion and No. 1 overall seed Villanova, former Wisconsin stars are having fun on Twitter.

Donte DiVincenzo led the way with 21 points in the opening round as the Wildcats overcame a first half in which they led by one point at intermission to cruise over the final 20 minutes.

"I told them we were all proud of them", Jay Wright said. I'm happy for him because he needed something positive.

"And I actually think Wisconsin's bigger, even bigger, than Butler, so probably even tougher. He's a heck of a player".

The Badgers are off to the Sweet 16 for the fourth consecutive year. On Thursday night, they leaned on their experience from previous NCAA visits down the stretch to defeat Virginia Tech 84-74.

Wisconsin led the Irish by a point with 16 seconds remaining seconds and had the ball.

"I think I play best when I go out there with an "I don't really care" attitude", he said.

Jenkins has been struggling with his shot for some time. They simply need to him break his latest slump, and a big game might be just the thing he needs. Villanova is trying to be the first back-to-back titlist since Florida in 2007.

Wisconsin: All that's left for the Badgers seniors - Koenig, Hayes, Brown and Zak Showalter - is to win a national title. Koenig hit a school-record eight three pointers to score a game-high 28 points. "Just things like that and little plays", Iverson said.

Koenig couldn't miss, but while he did his damage from the outside for Wisconsin, the Hokies attacked inside with Leday muscling for layups off nice feeds from Seth Allen and Justin Robinson.

After Allen missed a 3, Koenig was off the mark, but junior center Ethan Happ scored on a putback, giving Wisconsin a 79-73 lead. Allen shook off a toe injury and finished with 10, but was only 3 of 10 from the field.

"We're not there yet", Martin said after the cheers died down. "At the end of the day, they made more winning plays than us". But the Gamecocks used an 11-0 run midway through the second half to take control. "Our team doctor was here". Let's start out with the obvious: This game is going to be played at a slow pace. And as long as he's playing like this, no one will want to come up against the Badgers. The Badgers do have some offensive weapons, but their strength is their defense and if they get into a shoot out against the Wildcats they're likely going to be in trouble unless Koening goes absolutely off once again. Hit 2 3-pointers in the final 11.7 seconds, the first to forge a tie and the second just before the buzzer to give UW the victory.
