Badgers pay attention to Tournament upsets

When Wisconsin's Badgers weren't on the court at the CenturyLink Center, they were watching other games from the opening round of the tournament. Seeing major teams like Iowa State and Baylor fall on the first day helped ensure that Bucky Badger wouldn't look past 16 seed Coastal Carolina.

No 16 seed has ever beaten a one seed in the tournament, but Coastal Carolina had a second half lead against Virginia as a 16 seed last season. Racine native Josh Cameron is one of the Chanticleers' top scorers and has extra motivation to play well against the team from his home state that didn't recruit him out of high school.

The Badgers say they'll approach Coastal Carolina like any other tournament opponent, which means they'll try to exploit a size advantage and get the ball to Frank Kaminsky often. Kaminsky, the national player of the year finalist, hopes to end his college career with a second straight Final Four appearance.

The Badgers play Coastal Carolina at approximately 8:20PM Central in Omaha. That game can be seen on TBS.
