No. 12 Wisconsin (20-12, 10-8 Big Ten) vs. No. 4 Xavier (25-7, 12-4 A-10)

Boise, Idaho

Time: Approx. 1:20 PM CT

TV: CBS

My Prediction: Wisconsin 58, Xavier 55

I originally had Wisconsin in the Sweet 16 because I had them playing Portland State in the second round. That didn't work out, but there's no reason to think that Wisconsin can't beat Xavier... as long as the Badger offense operates like it did in the second half against Florida State. The defense will be there so who will step up and make shots? I think Jason Bohannon will have a big game and that will be enough.
