After a nice little pregame appetizer of Jimmer, the Badgers will take on Butler in the Sweet 16. There's little doubt that this isn't the same Butler team that wen to the Final Four last year, but it's obvious the Bulldogs have gotten better thoughout the year and have learned how to win without Gordon Heyward.

This game will feature a battle of two duos as Jordan Taylor and Jon Leuer face Shelvin Mack and Gordon Heyward.
