More About Wisconsin

Stuckey: Wisconsin was one of the most fortunate teams in the country this season. The Badgers got almost every bounce to go their way late in close games, but that also means the Badgers were in position to win a lot of close games. That speaks to their extremely disciplined defense.

It also helps to have a potential player of the year in Johnny Davis, who can take over a game at any time.

While Wisconsin won’t beat itself with turnovers (second nationally in that department), it could easily shoot itself out of the tournament, especially if it runs into a team that can keep Davis somewhat in check. For the season, Wisconsin is shooting just 31.2% from 3 — a percentage that’s even worse in league play. That’s not ideal for a team that doesn’t get a high percentage of second looks due to its lack of offensive rebounding prowess, which is by design to prevent teams from getting out in transition and speeding the game up.

Unless the steaks Brad Davison is having one of his good nights from beyond the arc, the shooting just isn’t good enough for a deep run.

More About Iowa State

Doug Ziefel: Iowa State has everything you look for when trying to identify Cinderella teams in tournaments.

First, the Clones are excellent defensively, ranking 10th in adjusted defensive efficiency, sixth in turnover percentage and 15th in 3-point percentage allowed during the regular season.

Secondly, they have a guy who can take over games and lead them to victory. That guy is Izaiah Brockington, who transferred from Penn State for his senior season and became the heart and soul of this team. We saw his magic early on in the year, as he burst onto the scene with two big performances against Xavier and Iowa. However, the Cyclones managed to beat Texas Tech, Memphis and Creighton — even when Brockington wasn’t at his best.

This is a very dangerous team when it all comes together.
