    This isn’t what I need to know. What about the basketball team?

    Good shooting, good defense, takes decent care of the ball, terrible rebounding, no depth, and played in one of the weakest conferences in college basketball. Only got a 13 seed because of one decent win against Long Beach State, otherwise probably would have been a 15. If they hit a bunch of 3s (certainly possible) could give Wisconsin a game. But really, Badgers are lucky to play these guys… probably the weakest of all the 13/14 seeds.
