Wisconsin and Pittsburgh took two very different routes to their first-round matchup in the 2016 NCAA Tournament.

The Badgers, who entered the season with 17 consecutive trips to the Big Dance, looked dead in the water around mid-January when a loss to Northwestern dropped them to 9-9. But Greg Gard, who took over for the legendary Bo Ryan about a month earlier, finally got things figured out, leading his team to an 11-3 record down the stretch to earn a No. 7 seed.

Pittsburgh, the anti-Wisconsin, began the year 14-1 and 3-0 in the ACC, only to go 7-10 from mid-January on. The Panthers aren’t short on talent, but they haven’t won more than two games in a row in the last two months.

The differences make for an intriguing matchup, as the Badgers are favored by just two points.
