Here are Five Things to Know as the No. 1 Wildcats face the No. 8 Badgers on Saturday in KeyBank Center.

The Badgers are fully capable of the upset, but they don't have the depth behind their three best players and predicting them to keep pace with Villanova seems unlikely.

Still, the missed dunks could not take away from the performance turned in by the man Villanova coach Jay Wright dubbed as the, "Michael Jordan of Delaware" earlier in the season.

Butler out-rebounded the Eagles 42-27 and held them to just 40.3 percent shooting from the field. The wildcard here is that the Badgers have three extremely talented stars and at times have looked like one of the nation's top teams, showing they have the potential for a massive upset.

To me, this is a very scary game for defending champs. "But let's hope we learn from those games". We couldn't score. I think [Thursday] night, second half, our defense saved us.

"They just know who they are", Moore said.

Virginia Tech is excited to be back in the NCAA Tournament for the first time in a decade.

COLD HAND: Villanova's Kris Jenkins, who made a now famous 3-pointer at the buzzer in last year's title game to beat North Carolina, is in a deep shooting funk.

Koenig drilled a last-second J over 6'7 Mikal Bridges to give the Badgers a 31-27 halftime lead.

Hayes admits that seeing his college career draw to a close has motivated him to step up his game. "Sometimes there's more made of that type of scenario, in terms of who's loose, who the pressure's on, who's favored". "I'm just glad that we went out and embraced it, and went out and got the "W.' We played hard defense and made some shots tonight".

"They see the sands going through the hourglass, knowing there's not much time left, regardless of how we finish it out", Gard said on the eve of an experience-rich game against Villanova that will match teams that have been to the past two national championship games. Dwayne Bacon scored 25 points with his 9 rebounds to lead them.

"Tell him to shoot", fellow senior Josh Hart said of his advice to Jenkins. Koenig then committed what could have been a killer turnover with 36.4 seconds left when his pass out of a trap to Hayes was stolen by DiVincenzo, who was fouled by Hayes. That's what he does. You're not as anxious or nervous in big games or tough situations. "And he's a great shooter".

"They are similar in a lot of ways with their pack-line defense, their physicality", Wright said. The Wildcats saw a awful performance from Kris Jenkins, who went 2 of 13 from the field and had 7 points in 33 minutes, but still avoided the unlikely upset and soldiered on. "I need to stay aggressive and hopefully the shots go in again". "I want all of our guys to be like that". And they didn't take their first lead until just a minute remained in the first half.

"We fought as hard as we could", Leday said. "And right now, we can't".

It has even happened to Wisconsin, though not often. "I think those guards are smaller and quicker than any guards we played against". "We got to forget about it".
