No. 12 Wisconsin (19-12, 10-8 Big Ten) vs. No. 5 Florida St. (25-9, 10-6 ACC)

Time: Approx. 8:45 PM CT

TV: CBS

Opposing Blog: Tomahawk Nation

More Coverage: Meet the Florida State Seminoles

My Prediction: Wisconsin 61, Florida State 57

If you were around me last weekend you probably heard me say many times: "Whoever gets the Badgers in the first round gets an easy bye to the second round." And then something happened. Florida State got bumped up to a No. 5 seed and Wisconsin was pushed back to a No. 12 seed, creating a decent first round match-up for the Badgers. I don't think Wisconsin can stop Toney Douglas, but I do think the defense is good enough to stop the rest of the team. Douglas has scored 30 or more points in two losses this season, which means he needs help from his team. I think the Badgers' defense does enough to hold the 'Noles under 60 and Wisconsin gets the win.
