After dispatching an overmatched North Carolina squad on Friday night, the Wisconsin Badgers men’s basketball team move on to face the top-seeded Baylor Bears in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The game tips off at 1:40 p.m. CST on Sunday and will be aired live on CBS.

The game will be played at historic Hinkle Fieldhouse, the home of the Butler Bulldogs, in Indianapolis. Kevin Harlan, Dan Bonner and Dana Jacobson will be on the call.
After getting off to a slow start, Baylor walloped 16-seed Hartford on Friday, winning 79-55, led by MaCio Teague’s 22 points and Jared Butler’s nine assists. They also, and this is important, have a man named Flo Thamba on their team and that is just a wonderful name. The Bears entered the tournament having lost to Oklahoma State in the Big 12 Tournament and playing worse defense than they had all season, but a game against the Hawks was apparently just what the doctor ordered.
We will, obviously, have much more coming throughout the day on the Bears.
