The Badgers and Musketeers held form in the Round of 64 and now meet in the Round of 32 with a trip to the Sweet 16 on the line.
Xavier blew past Weber State while the Badgers struggled all night long before closing things out against Pitt in a very low scoring affair.
The Badgers have always prided themselves on the defensive end and this was quite the show.
Wisconsin held Pitt to just 43 points and their offense did just enough to steal a win from the Panthers. Wisconsin scored just 16 points themselves in the first half, but their defensive efforts kept them in the game and eventually they caught fire to pull away.
Nigel Hayes has been the go to guy for the Badgers all season long and they’ll certainly need him here. Hayes has averaged 16.2 points to go along with 5.8 rebounds on the year. Hayes finished with with 12 points and 5 rebounds in the win over Pitt.
Xavier has the talent and team to really make a push at the title and with the way their first game went, things look good for the #2 seed.
The Musketeers took to Weber State 71-53 as they dominated from the opening tip. The Musketeers led by 11 at the break and really had no issues in the 2nd half. The Musketeers had 4 players score in double figures as James Farr was the man leading the charge.
Farr finished with 18 points and grabbed 15 rebounds as Weber State had no answer for him.
Look for Xavier to really push the tempo here as they play a very different style than Wisconsin. While the Musketeers look to get out and run, the Badgers will look to slow the pace down. Expect this to be the crucial key to the game as Xavier simply cannot afford to fall into Wisconsin’s game.
