You’ve got to beat the best to be the best. Wisconsin Badgers Basketball fans erupted on social media after the NCAA selection committee announced UW was an eight seed. Making matters worse the Badgers will play the top overall number one seed in Villanova if they can win their opening round game Thursday against #9 seed Virginia Tech.
Wisconsin will play the late game in the East bracket. The game will tip-off at approximately 8:40 PM in Buffalo, NY.
Bucky finished the season with a (25-8) record while the Hokies are (22-10) overall. Wisconsin lost the Big 10 Championship game 71-56 to Michigan Sunday. Some on the election committee have already said that was the difference between a #7 and a #8 seed.
Marquette University received a #10 seed and will play #7 seed South Carolina at 7:50 PM Friday.
