Merry Madness! Sixteen down and 16 to go. There’s been plenty of upsets so far in the round of 64 of March Madness 2015, and there’s sure to be more on Day 2 – aka Friday, March 20 – of the NCAA Tournament. One the games taking place on Day 2 in the West bracket is No. 1 Wisconsin vs. No. 16 Coastal Carolina.
Wisconsin is coming off a season that ended in the Final Four with a loss to Kentucky. But that didn’t stop the Badgers from dominating the Big Ten to become both regular season and conference tournament champions. Wisconsin not only earned the automatic bid to the Big Dance, but also finished out the season 28-3 overall and 16-2 in the Big Ten.
The Badgers will be facing-off against Coastal Carolina in the round of 64 in the NCAA Tournament.
Coastal Carolina University returns to the NCAA Tournament for the second-straight year. Last year, as a No. 16 seed, Coastal Carolina caught the nation’s attention by leading at the half against Virginia, a No. 1 seed – a 16-seed has never knocked off a 1-seed in tournament history. But the second half wasn’t as successful for the Chanticleers as they fell to Virginia, 70-59.
This year, Coastal Carolina punched its ticket once again after winning the Big South Championship – earning them an automatic bid to the tournament. They head into tournament play with a record of 24-9 overall and 12-6 in the Big South.
