With their win, the Badgers will advance to the Sweet 16 in the East region.

"I even mentioned to the guys having to being willing to die for the opportunity to play in a national championship", Hayes said. The Wildcats saw a awful performance from Kris Jenkins, who went 2 of 13 from the field and had 7 points in 33 minutes, but still avoided the unlikely upset and soldiered on.

Wisconsin on the other hand had a tougher time with the Virginia Tech Hokies in their opening round matchup Thursday night. That certainly happened Thursday night. That offensive outburst was a key reason the Badgers advanced and Wisconsin could use another strong outing from their senior leader.

It was Hayes who had kept Wisconsin from crumbling. It's no coincidence that in their previous three losses, the Wildcats were outrebounded every time.

Stat of the day These two NCAA games mark the first time Jenkins has failed to hit at least one three-pointer in consecutive games since December of 2015, when he was 0 for 4 vs. DE and 0 for 2 vs. Penn.

That's the reality the Wildcats will have to endure, at least in the short term, as March moves on without them. "He's now gone three straight games with double doubles". If Wisconsin's strong defense can create problems for Jenkins, they could definitely put themselves into position for the massive upset.

Netanyahu, Greenblatt Meet Again to Discuss Security of Israel, Lasting Peace
Peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians have been frozen since 2014 and settlements are one of the most heated issues. However, Israel disagrees with Palestine, citing historical and political links to the land, as well as security interests.

After holding off No. 13 Bucknell with an 86-80 win, No. 4 West Virginia will face No. 5 Notre Dame on March 18, at 12:10 p.m. ET. The Wildcats also have the nation's second best free throw shooting percentage (79.2%), which could be huge if the game is close down the stretch.

The Wildcats vaunted backcourt is comprised of Kris Jenkins, Jalen Brunson and Josh Hart. Worse yet, the senior point guard for the University of Wisconsin men's basketball team had pain in his stomach and felt nauseous.

Wisconsin vs Villanova basketball scores and results will be posted here. They have serious NCAA tournament experience (starters Nigel Hayes and Bronson Koenig both played in Final Fours in 2014 and '15) and were ranked in the Top 15 nationally a few weeks ago. For that reason alone, it felt like against the wrong team, on the wrong night in the Big Dance, they could be beaten.

Flushed with pride, Wisconsin coach Greg Gard hugged his wife and children as the Badgers' pep band played their hearts out.

London Perrantes rebounded from a slow first half to finish with 24 points on 9-for-14 shooting to lead the way for the Cavalier (23-10), who shot 50-percent as a team from the floor. "(Andrew) Rowsey, the transfer, has come in, and the freshman, Markus Howard, have really stepped in to those roles and played very well this year", he said.

Tied at 62 with the defending champions and No. 1 overall seed, Hayes received the ball at the baseline and made a gorgeous fake before tip-toeing along the baseline before putting in a reverse layup to give his team a two-point lead with just 11.4 seconds left to play.
