Bears. Beets. Battle star Galactica. Notice Badgers wasn't part of that.

Badger beat down.

Hold Wisky under 50 while scoring 78+ please, Bears
That which does not kill me, will try again and get nastier

Baylor is favored to defeat Wisconsin by 6 points. The Badgers shot very well in their 1st Round win over the Tarheels. Not going to be the case today in the 2nd Round against a tenacious Bears defense. Baylor needs to continue having 4 players in double figure scoring: Butler, Mitchell, Teague and either Flagler or Mayer. I expect Baylor's 3-Point shooting percentage to be better today. SIC 'EM, BEARS!

Defend ferociously, rebound dominantly, shoot the 3 precisely, turnover rarely, play inspired both ways = WIN!

In the 10 minutes leading up to the tip, let's see if CBS pumps up a Badger upset.

Not playing great so far but even with wisky. I think we will be alright once we get going.

Horrible foul call against JTT - he did a tremendous job of staying in front

Such crap calls

Yep, should just be one bc the first call on him was horrible

VB - how do we end up in so many switches that leave our 5 guarding a 3 from a fast guard and our shortest guards on the opposing teams big. Fault of the 5 or the guard that gets caught in the switch?
Adriacus Peratuun

Dumb fouls FAR from the basket are going to come back to haunt. And why does Butler not understand that we need him to NOT commit early fouls?

Yeah... when both your hands are up in the air and you don't initiate any contact and it's only caused by a lunge and forearm from the offensive player you can't call that *****

This whole tourney is being called ticky tacky. Makes it tough when you're used to Big 12 BrawlBall.
