Another good week for the Badgers and we are starting to see some opening round games in Milwaukee again!

Let’s hop in and see where Wisconsin, and the rest of the Big Ten, is looking like.

  • Michigan - #4 seed.

Shelby’s Bracket WAG – (February 20)

  • Wisconsin – South #3 seed against Iona (in Milwaukee).
  • Michigan State – Midwest #3 seed against Boston U.
  • Michigan – East #4 seed against UW-Green Bay.
  • Ohio State – South #5 seed against Harvard.
  • Iowa – Midwest #5 seed against winner of Oklahoma State/Providence.
  • Minnesota – West #11 seed against UConn.
  • Nebraska – Also considered

Like we mentioned last week, that win against Michigan was huge. It bumped them into the Milwaukee bracket in a couple of the projections. In the other, where they head to Orlando, Creighton is ahead of them. Where else could they end up? St. Louis hosts, but I would say Wichita State and Kansas pretty much have those two spots locked up.

All the Badgers can do is keep winning, and everything will work itself out.
