The 2016 NCAA tourney has been an exhilarating ride so far, with upsets and last-second shots bringing America to its knees while clutching its chest. The Big Ten has three schools that have survived and advanced to the Sweet 16: No. 5 seeds Maryland and Indiana, along with No. 7 Wisconsin.
Purdue freshman Caleb Swanigan has announced his intention to declare for the 2016 NBA Draft, but will not hire an agent, maintaining his amateurism.
In early January, Wisconsin was 9-9 overall and 1-4 in the Big Ten. A ticket to the Big Dance? It seemed to be a longshot at that point. This team looked lost. But, it all changed after a loss at Northwestern that proved to be the nadir for the Badgers in their 9-9 start.
