Great win by the Wisconsin Badgers last night!! On the way to the sweet 16!! I love it that our Badgers keep proving all the haters wrong!!!— Sue (@Dpont24) March 18, 2012
The Wisconsin Badgers are riding the nation’s stingiest defense — and admittedly a bit of luck — back to the round of 16.
The Badgers held the Southeastern Conference’s two leading scorers in check Saturday night and Ryan Evans grabbed a crucial rebound with 2.1 seconds left to help Wisconsin fend off Vanderbilt 60-57 in the NCAA tournament.
The Badgers held John Jenkins (20.1) and Jeffery Taylor (16.3) to 13 and 9 points, respectively, in advancing to face top-seeded Syracuse in the East Regional in Boston.
