Baylor vs Wisconsin Sweet Sixteen Matchup Preview and Game Info

The Baylor Bears completely steamrolled the Creighton Bluejays this week on their way to a Sweet Sixteen matchup against the Wisconsin Badgers. The No. 2 seeded Badgers may look like the favorites on paper but they seem to be moving in the opposite direction of the Bears.

In Wisconsin’s win over Oregon they struggled everywhere. Losing at halftime they were able to charge back and pull out a win. But the Badgers will have their hands full against the Bears this Thursday. The Bears play a well-rounded game of intense basketball. They are on an emotional high and seem to hold the momentum advantage.

Wisconsin is an offensive war machine. They spread the ball and are capable of outscoring every team in the tournament. Their defense is their Achilles heal and may make them extremely vulnerable if Balyor can slow the game down and limit Wisconsin’s offensive possessions.

Expect Baylor to do just that and make this game a surprisingly low-scoring matchup.

Prediction

Upset Alert:  Baylor 75 Wisconsin 70
