The Wisconsin Badgers and Arizona Wildcats basketball game this evening is the first time one and two seeded teams meet in the 2014 NCAA Tournament. Only one of these strong squads can move on to the Final Four when we watch Wisconsin vs Arizona online free live streaming.
The Badgers of Wisconsin have never beaten a top-four seeded team before and this season they have yet to face a higher seeded team. Their record under coach Bo Ryan against top-four seeds is 0-6. On the bright side, three of those losses came by six points or fewer so tonight’s AU vs Badgers game should be a tight scoring affair based on Wisconsin’s recent history.
It has been nearly 15 years since the Badgers have reached the Final Four so they and their fans feel they are due. They have reached the NCAA Tournament for 13 straight years, though only one of those years have they managed to reach the regional final. The odds are even when considering that in Elite Eight history, the number two seed has won 23 and lost 22 battles against a number one team.
Tonight’s Arizona Wisconsin game almost didn’t happen when the Wildcats fell behind on Friday against San Diego State University. It took Nick Johnson getting hot in the second half for Arizona to pull through with the win and advance to the Elite Eight. AU would rather not have to play from behind today.
On paper the Wildcats Badgers game looks pretty even. Both teams average around 73 points per game and both hold their opponents south of 42 percent shooting per game. The big difference is in style where Arizona plays a much flashier game with a lot of dunks in transition, while the Badgers play a more methodical game.
The match up to watch in tonight’s Arizona Wisconsin basketball game is between the two seven-foot centers, Frank Kaminsky of Wisconsin and Kaleb Tarczewski of Arizona. Tarczewski had a rough game due to foul trouble in the previous round and can ill afford similar struggles today.
