The game wasn't a track meet. The score was only 64-63. But this was one of the best games of the college basketball season. The way Wisconsin played last night, they would've crushed just about anybody else. Unfortunately for the Badgers, they played a Syracuse team that had its best offensive performance of the year.
Many thought Syracuse would struggle in this matchup because much of its offense is predicated on creating turnovers and getting easy fast break buckets. Wisconsin turned it over just 6 times in the game resulting in just 2 fast break scores both in the first half. But the Orange were nearly error-free as well and matched the Badgers with just 6 turnovers of their own.
