Bronson Koenig made a school record eight three’s en route to 28 points and an NCAA Tournament victory over Virginia Tech Thursday. The 84-74 opening round victory was much closer than the score indicates. The Hokies were within a possession or two until the final minute. Nigel Hayes added a double-double in the win.
Wisconsin moves on to the Round of 32 Saturday. They will match up with the defending National Champions Villanova. The game will tip-off at 1:40 PM.
