Most Wisconsin Badgers basketball fans by now are currently going through withdrawals from the NCAA Tournament, which was canceled amid health concerns surrounding COVID-19.

In an attempt to lighten the mood, and hit us all in the memory feels, we at B5Q have put together a tournament challenge to determine the player that is the biggest fan favorite from the past 20 years of Wisconsin basketball.

Each day we will breakdown the matchup, and at the end of the article, you the fans, get to vote and ultimately decide who moves on, and who is eliminated.

That is completely for you to decide, so make sure to cast your vote each day, as we look to crown a champion in the coming weeks.

Check out the initial bracket below, and be prepared to vote, starting Monday as the first matchup is released!
