The Badgers went cold today, but their seeding for March Madness remains up in the air. Can they grab a No. 4 seed, or are they stuck at 5?
Well, dang. Wisconsin played Ohio State on Sunday, and at several moments seemed poised to win the Big Ten Tournament championship. Alas, a brutal cold streak over the final eight minutes or so and some killer turnovers allowed the Buckeyes to pull away with a 60-53 victory.
Depending on who you ask, the Badgers were possibly playing for a No. 3 seed vs. the Buckeyes. Now that they've lost, do they hold onto a No. 4 seed or fall to No. 5? Twitter's already chirping (sorry) about the inevitability of Wisconsin getting the 5 seed and being pegged as the likely 5-12 upset pick. For my money -- Monopoly money only this month -- the Badgers deserved a four seed for the regular-season resume (big wins over Indiana, Ohio State, Michigan, etc.) and this weekend's surge in the conference tournament.
