Wisconsin Basketball fans bummed that you do not have a team to follow in the NCAA men’s basketball brackets; think again. The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh has reached the Final Four in Division 3. The best part is that two local graduates are on this record breaking Titans team. Luxemburg-Casco graduates Jake Zeitler and Dave Vlotho have each had an impact on this year’s team. The Titans had huge tournament wins against Marietta and Wittenberg in the first round. They then beat Emory and Augustana in the second round where they claimed a sectional championship.
Next up, Oshkosh (24-7) will take on Ramapo College (New Jersey) (25-6) at 4 p.m Friday March 16. It will be the first of two semifinals at the Salem Civic Center in Salem, Va. The other Final Four game will feature Springfield (Mass.) (22-8) and Nebraska Wesleyan (28-3). They will tip-off at approx 6:30 p.m Friday. The Championship game is Saturday March 17, at 5 p.m.
