After knocking off No. 10 Pitt Friday night in ugly-but-it-counts fashion, No. 7 Wisconsin will face No. 2 Xavier Sunday night in St. Louis. As B5Q's Curt Hogg noted on Twitter Friday night, tip is expected to be around 7:40 p.m. CST. It's officially scheduled for 30 minutes after the conclusion of Middle Tennessee State vs. Syracuse.
Xavier opened as a 6.5-point favorite on Wisconsin, and current odds range from 4.5 to 5 according to OddsShark. ESPN's national bracket (an aggregate of its Tournament Challenge entries) sees only 20% of the country picking the Badgers against the Musketeers.
Below is the full TV schedule for Sunday's games (thanks to SB Nation's Andy Hutchins for compiling the chart). As always, the games can be live-streamed on NCAA March Madness Live site and mobile app.
