NCAA Tournament: Wisconsin holds off Pitt in opener

Clank! Clank! Clank! It wasn’t pretty. In fact, at times, it was downright ugly with a combined 66 missed shots doting the St. Louis skyline. But to No. 7 Wisconsin, its 47-43 win over No. 10 Pitt was a thing of beauty.

This was the first time a team won an NCAA game by scoring fewer than 50 points since 2003. (The last team to score 47 points and win an NCAA

NCAA tourney at a glance: No. 7 seed Wisconsin

At one point this season, an NCAA bid seemed like a long shot for Wisconsin, which was 9-9 overall and 1-4 in the Big Ten after a loss at Northwestern on Jan. 12. But the Badgers, who lost to the likes of UW Milwaukee and Western Illinois early on, rallied under Greg Gard to secure an 18th consecutive trip to the Big Dance after he took over a 7-5 team following the retirement of Bo Ryan on Dec. 15. Late in the year, Gard inked a five-year deal, taking the "interim" off his title.
