At the half CBS talked about the Tourney Selection Committee's top 4 seeds in each bracket. And there were the Badgers at #16.  They are the #4 seed in the Midwest with Virginia, Kentucky and Houston ahead of them in the bracket.  And Michigan, MSU and Purdon't were also in the top 16.  And before anyone says that doesn't mean anything 13 of the 16 in 2017 remained in the top 16 and in 2018 15 of 16 remained on selection Sunday. And no team in either year dropped below a 5 seed.

Pritzl and Ford really need to step up their game.  In 16 minutes Pritzl had 1 shot, a miss and 1 rebound. That is not enough effort.  And Ford in 13 minutes had 2 misses, zero points and zero rebounds.  Again, not good enough. 

And the Badgers next opponent, MSU clobbered Minnysoda 79-55 at MSU. 

Pritzl is a 22 year old redshirt junior. He is what he is at this point. He'll be back next year, play his 8-10 minutes a game and stretch a defense in spurts. He'll never be able to handle the ball well enough to get heavy minutes at guard and he's a defensive liability. 

Ford still has a chance. 

Davidson won't ever get the benifit of the doubt, so he might need to start playing that way.  He drives looking for contact and isn't getting those calls and plays defense looking for charges and stripes are not giving him that either.  He's a solid defender and a great shooter, love to see him focus on that.  

Ford wasted minutes

Ultimately, this was a winnable game but they shit the bed in the last few minutes, starting with the bunny Happ missed.  This team is pretty good, but not good enough to overcome those kind of things on the road.  

Iverson also, he had 2 chances at the end and never got the ball out of his hands, add the 3 times in the first half and that equals dreadful.  His 2 unopposed dunks were great but one would think he could make a contested shot once in a while, at least get fouled.  And what was Trice doing when he dribbled the clock away and threw up a prayer?  And why not foul with a minute left instead of wasting clock?

CBS, ( Jerry Palm ) has real time updates on his bracketology.  

Little Joey Lunardi  needs to step up his game at  ESPN.

It would be nice if the Badgers get a 1st round game at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines . 

Some in the MATRIX have Bucky on the 3 line
