The Badgers, like so many Big 10 teams, competed for the regular season title at one point or another.
However, Wisconsin tapered off early and will now be forced to play a tough ACC team in Pittsburgh to start their tournament off.
Pittsburgh took down Syracuse in the first round of their conference tournament, but was then routed by UNC just one day later.
The Pittsburgh Panthers first round ACC game against the Syracuse Orange marked kind of how their season went.
Pittsburgh got off to a slow start and eventually pulled away as they held a 15 point lead with just 5 minutes to play. The Panthers made it look easy blowing their lead to get the game tied, but eventually they got a late layup to secure a win.
Pittsburgh didn’t have too much to add to their resume, but that first round win combined with a regular season win over Duke at home was enough for the committee.
The Panthers will look to keep up the defense and keep this game lower scoring as that certainly favors them. Pittsburgh allowed just 68.7 points per contest throughout the season. That Panthers weren’t that bad offensively either, averaging nearly 76 points per game.
The Badgers, along with about 8 other times in the Big Ten were once up in the top tier of the Big Ten Standings.
Wisconsin was one of the first to fall off and an early loss in the Big Ten tourney resulted in them getting a 7 seed here.
This Badgers team is nothing like the ones in the past that were 1’s or 2’s in the tourney. This team lacks a lot on the offensive floor as they saw all their shooters graduate last season.
The Badgers average just 68.9 points per game, which is something that won’t cut it in the tourney. Their defense though is what keeps them in games. The Badgers allow only 64.6 points against as they like to get in the face of shooters. That in turn does lead to some offensive rebound chances, which they can’t allow Pitt to do here.

The Panthers and Badgers are very good defensively, which means this has the possibility of being a very lower scoring game.
Look for both teams to slow the pace down here, with the inside game really making the difference with neither team having a lot of shooters.
