The Badgers are coming off a great run to the National Title game in which they defeated previously-unbeaten Kentucky before losing to the Duke Blue Devils in the finals. They finished the season 36-4.
The Orange and Badgers last met in the 2012 Sweet Sixteen. 1-seed Syracuse outlasted a three-point onslaught by Wisconsin to eek out a 64-63 victory. This will be only the fourth meeting between the two schools, Syracuse currently leads the all-time series 2-1.
Syracuse is 1-1 in ACC/B1G Challenge play, defeating Indiana in 2013 but losing to Michigan last year. Wisconsin is 7-9 all-time in the Challenge, losing to Duke (ironically) last season.
