Villanova Faces Wisconsin Round 2 Action – The Villanova Wildcats cruised to a 76-56 win over Mount saint Mary’s in round 1 while the Wisconsin Badgers advanced by virtue of their 84-74 win over Virginia Tech.

The Badgers have been playing well being led by 6’10 Ethan Happ and their defense finished rated in the Top 10 squads this past regular season.  Happ is going to be facing a Wildcat team that is more more mobile but a bit softer than last year’s squad.

Josh Hart leads the Wildcat offense and he is going to get a look at Player of the Year honors. For this game the Wildcats might be best off getting on their horses and taking off at a high tempo to break some of what the Badgers do on defense. For their part the Wisconsin team is going to want to slow the game down and use happ to establish an inside game. Then they can hope that gunners like Bronson Koenig and Zak Showalter. Villanova are no slouches on defense and they have entered this tournament playing excellent basketball on both sides of the ball.

Buffalo hosts the afternoon match-up that is set to air on CBS. The game starts at 2:40 EST.
