The place Wisconsin basketball falls within the newest USA TODAY Sports activities bracket
After a 1-1 week in Wisconsin basketball that included a home loss to Iowa and a dominant street win to Big Ten Bottom Feeder Northwestern, Wisconsin stayed steady in the newest USA TODAY Sports group.
The Badgers landed on the # 5 start line and would face Western Kentucky in the projection in the first round. Wisconsin was on the side of the bracket with Michigan as the number 1 leader in the region.
The last four had not one but two Big Ten teams in Minnesota and Maryland. Up to ten or just seven teams could end up at the conference, with the most likely combination somewhere between those two numbers. Wisconsin is firmly in the field as they battle over the seeds for the next several weeks.
