The round of 64 of the NCAA tournament starts on Thursday in spots all across the country. It’s an 8/9 match up in the east bracket between the Wisconsin Badgers and the Virginia Tech Hokies.
These two teams play completely different styles of play, and it will be interesting to see how they match up when they step on the court. This is the first meeting between the two teams since 2008.
When selections came out on Sunday and the Badgers were announced as an eighth seed their fans were not happy.
They believed that they should have been a higher seed as they finished second in the regular season of the Big Ten, and there were other teams who finished lower in the conference standings that got a higher seed.
But this is the hand they were dealt and they have to work with it. If they were to win this game it would make for a very interesting game against Villanova(baring a 16 seed beating a one seed.) For the Badgers to win this game they need to try and slow down the pace of play.
Virginia Tech HOkies
Buzz Williams has come in and seemed to turn around the Virginia Tech Hokies program. This is the first appearance for the Hokies since 2007 and the future only seems to be getting brighter.
For the Hokies to win this game they need to try and run.
They don’t have a great defense so they aren’t going to shut anyone down that way, but they need to really try and get this game to be played in the high 70’s or 80’s. If they can get the score up in that range, they can win this game.

Free Wisconsin Badgers vs. Virginia Tech Hokies NCAAB Prediction:
This game is going to come down to what pace of play the game is played at.
I think the Badgers are going to come out motivated in this game to prove people, and the NCAA committee wrong.
I expect them to really lock down on the defensive side of the ball and make life rough on the Hokies.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Hokies ATS
Although the Badgers win, I think the Hokies will cover the spread.
