Wisconsin will play as a 7 seed in the East Region of the NCAA Tournament, facing 10-seed Pittsburgh in the first round.
Benjamin Worgull likes the matchup, saying, "Pittsburgh plays into what Wisconsin likes to do. Their slow-down tempo lulls people to sleep."
So can the Badgers translate a favorable first-round game into postseason success? Can the Pittsburgh-recruited Nigel Hayes prove to be the difference?
That's why they play the game.
