Streak Snapped

Here is an interesting piece of trivia: when Wisconsin beat Florida State in the first round of the NCAA tournament on Friday night, the win snapped a seven-game losing streak against higher seeded teams in NCAA tournament play. The Badgers hadn’t beaten a higher seeded team since the Final Four run in 2000.

You’d think with the decade of success UW has had that wouldn’t be the case, but it is. In all but one of the seasons since the Badgers went to the Final Four, their season ended with a loss to a higher seeded team. The lone exception? UW being on the end of a 5-12 upset in 2001 with a stunning loss to Georgia State.

Badgers, Badgers, Badgers

One of the last teams in the NCAA field of 65 teams, Wisconsin upset No. 5 seed Florida State 60-58 in overtime in the East Regional first round. It’s UW’s first win over a higher seeded team since the Final Four run in 2000.

In honor of that, here we go:

One And Done For UW

With what is the lowest seed for a Big Ten team that I can recall, Wisconsin gets a No. 12 seed in the East Regional and will play No. 5 Florida State in Boise, Ida., Friday.

No way, no how, does UW, which really doesn’t even deserve to be in the field of 65 teams, get past the Seminoles. Florida State gets the chance to do the same thing to the UW basketball team as it did to UW in football.

In an unusual pairing, Marquette is in the Boise bracket on Friday as well. The Warriors play Utah State in the West Regional.
