In the first half that saw the Badgers to their best performance, Wisconsin won the rebounding fight by three, two more blocks than the Tar Heels and trailed 40–24 with a 16-point lead from Brad Davison. North Carolina did not fully return to the game, as the Badgers controlled the second half en route to an 85–62 victory.

Wisconsin allowed Penn State to return to the Big Ten tournament despite controlling the game for 35 minutes. The Badgers eventually won by one point each, but the final five minutes set some alarms.

Tonight, Wisconsin never went above 16 in the Half. The Badgers quickly dodged any North Carolina punch en route in an 85–62 victory.

Heels Squad

Veteran Badgers in their best innings by the young Tar Heels squad to open the NCAA tournament.

What happened on Friday night at the McKay Arena – a stunning 85–62 win over North Carolina – did not bring back what it received from the Badgers last March. But, for the first time in a while, the program and its fans got to wrap their arms around the cheerful side of March Mad.

This is what senior guard Brad Davison did after scoring a C-high 29 points, tied for the second most by a UW player in a NWA tournament game.

Baylor coach Scott Drew was hired in 2004 and made Bayers a consistent winner to begin his tenure after three tenures.

Drew has led 12 seasons with at least 20 wins, taken Baylor twice in the Elite 8 and a program record of coaching wins over 160 wins.

Baylor is able to use these players’ quickness to switch screens. Despite shaping up on the front court, it has a 53.2% rebounding rate, ranking 44th in the nation and ninth in five major events.

The Beers made 11% of their defensive plays and averaged nine steals per game.
