CHICAGO (AP) -- Wisconsin's reward after a loss in the Big Ten Tournament finals was a Number-Two seed and a trip to a familiar place for the NCAA tournament.

The Badgers are heading right back to the United Center, where they were beaten 66-49 yesterday by Ohio State.

After the loss, the Badgers hung around to watch the selection show.

They found out they'd be playing Texas A&M-Corpus Christi in Friday's opening round of the Midwest Regional.

The Badgers have four days to rest up before playing the tournament champions of the Southland Conference.

Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan says the team doesn't have much time to lick its wounds, but he thinks his players will get themselves ready.

Badgers star Alando Tucker agrees.

He says the team isn't losing confidence and won't lose any sleep.
