U.W. Badgers: Sweet 16

From Ninety-six days after its season was turned upside down, the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team strolled into the Scottrade Center Sunday night with a chance to advance to the second weekend of the NCAA tournament.
Only six teams in the nation could say they’ve been to the Sweet Sixteen in four of the previous five seasons, a group that includes the Badgers.
After UW got a brilliant performance from junior point guard Bronson Koenig in a 66-63 upset of Xavier in a second-round game, there’s only one team that can say it’s going to the Sweet 16 for the fifth time in six seasons.
Koenig made two 3-pointers in the final 11.7 seconds – including the game-winner as time expired – to finish with a game-high 20 points. He helped UW use a 17-5 closing run to erase a nine-point deficit over the final 5 minutes, 59 seconds of the game.
Wisconsin is my alma mater and sports is about all I am proud of U.W. Madison.
My feeling is that they will make the Final 4, as they have the defense, experience and a strong motive (Boy Ryan retiring in the middle of the year)
