5th Seed Wisconsin Ready For NCAA Tournament Play

The fifth-seeded Badgers begin March Madness in Kansas City on Friday. Tip off is set for 11:40 AM.

They will face the 12th seeded Ole Miss Rebels, who knocked off Florida in the SEC title game Sunday.

This will be the Badgers 15th straight NCAA bid since.

Wisconsin is 25-17 all-time in the big dance, including a 16-11 record in 12 seasons under head coach Bo Ryan.

"Not a big list in front of us that have gone to more consecutive NCAA tournaments, so we're extremely proud of that, " said Ryan.

"Our young men are proud to be carrying the banner for Wisconsin and they certainly earned their right into it," said Ryan.

"We have a great opportunity ahead of us. This is the big dance, this is what everybody lives for, " said Badgers Senior Forward Ryan Evans.

"We're not going into the tournament with the idea of making it to a Sweet Sixteen. We're going down there with the intentions to win every game that we can play," said Freshman Forward Sam Dekker.
