Freshmen forwards Michael Beasley and Bill Walker might be playing in the NBA next season, but the No. 3-seed Wisconsin Badgers taught the two young stars and the rest of the Kansas State Wildcats a lesson in team defense as UW defeated KSU 72-55 Saturday afternoon at the Qwest Center.
The win advanced the Badgers (31-4) to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2005 and also broke a school record for most victories in a season.
Several pundits in the national media predicted the No. 11-seed Wildcats (21-12) would upset Wisconsin, but the Badgers held Kansas State to its lowest scoring output of the season.
Wisconsin will play 10th seeded Davidson at 6:10 pm on Friday in Detroit. GO BUCKY!!!!!!!!!
