The Wisconsin Badgers head back to the NCAA Tournament once again, as they received a No. 5 seed in the South regional on Sunday. The Badgers will play Pac-12 Tournament champion and No. 12 seed Oregon on Friday in San Jose, Calif.

Wisconsin enters the tournament with a 23-10 record, a fourth place finish in the Big Ten Conference standings at 14-6—and once again, they have a stake in March Madness after missing the tourney last season. The Badgers advanced to the Big Ten Tournament semifinal after defeating Nebraska on Friday before bowing out to regular season and eventual tournament champion Michigan State on Saturday afternoon.

Oregon finished the season 23-12, 10-8 in conference play, and captured the Pac-12 Tournament championship in defeating top-seeded Washington on Saturday.

Head coach Greg Gard and some select players are expected to talk with the media around 5:30 p.m. CT. B5Q is here in the Kohl Center media room and will provide more coverage throughout the evening.
