WISCONSIN: Last season: 22-13, lost in regional semifinals of NCAA Tournament.
Nickname: Badgers.
Coach: Greg Gard.
Conference: Big Ten.
Who's gone: Little-used reserve G Jordan Smith.
Who's back: Almost everyone else, including top nine scorers. F Nigel Hayes (15.7 points) is the preseason player of year in the Big Ten; G Bronson Koenig (13.1 points) can hit clutch shots; and F Ethan Happ (12.4 points) worked on his jumper to complement a strong inside game.
Who's new: G Brevin Pritzl is healthy after redshirting his freshman season with a foot injury. He was thought to be Wisconsin's best outside shooter. An eligibility issue sidelined Belgian native Andy Van Vliet last year. The 7-footer adds size and a shooter's touch behind the 6-10 Happ.
The Skinny: A Big Ten favorite, Wisconsin is a contender to make the Final Four for a third time in four seasons. Badgers have a mix of star power, experience and depth to go with the meticulous Gard, entering his first full year as head
FLORIDA: Last season: 21-15, lost in quarterfinals of the NIT
Nickname: Gators.
Coach: Mike White.
Conference: Southeastern.
Who's gone: F Dorian Finney-Smith, G DeVon Walker, G Brandon Francis-Ramirez.
Who's back: SG KeVaughn Allen, who started 32 games as a freshman and averaged 11.6 points despite shooting 31.5 percent from 3-point range; C John Egbunu, a former South Florida transfer who was dominant at times in his first season in the SEC; PG Kasey Hill, who averaged a career-best 9.1 points a game as a junior and had the most 3-pointers, rebounds, steals and blocks of his career; F Devin Robinson, a 6-foot-8 junior who has failed to meet expectations in two seasons.
Who's new: G Canyon Barry, a graduate transfer from College of Charleston and the youngest son of NBA Hall of Famer Rick Barry. Before needing season-ending shoulder surgery last season, Barry averaged 19.7 points in 13 games for the Cougars; F Keith Stone, who added size and strength while redshirting last season and could be a factor off the bench and in the paint.
The Skinny: The Gators have more depth and experience in White's second season, probably enough to get back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2014. One must: They have to shoot better from behind the arc and from the free-throw line.
Wisconsin looks to keep run going versus Florida

Wisconsin owns more NCAA Tournament wins than any other school over the past four years.

The Badgers look to add to that total Friday after delivering the tourney's biggest upset by sending defending champion Villanova home.

The eighth-seeded Badgers (27-9) are the only team to reach the Sweet 16 in each of the past four tournaments, and they seek to reach the Elite Eight for the third time in four years when they face fourth-seeded Florida in the East Region semifinals at New York's Madison Square Garden.

The Gators (26-8) easily handled Virginia in their second game, but even that convincing 65-39 victory doesn't rate with what Wisconsin accomplished in the second round.

Top-seeded Villanova led by seven points with just over five minutes remaining Saturday and seemed intent on finishing off the Badgers. Instead, Wisconsin closed with a decisive 15-5 burst for a 65-62 victory. Suddenly, Badgers senior guard Bronson Koenig was envisioning reaching the Final Four for the third time in his career.

"We talked about the legacy we want to leave," Koenig said. "Getting to the Final Four is one of the goals we talked about since the end of last season."

The Badgers didn't appear like a team capable of going on a tourney run when they lost five of six games late in the regular season. But they have turned it around by winning five of their past six games, defeating Virginia Tech in the first round before the attention-getting upset of Villanova.

Now they are looking for their 14th NCAA win over the last four years against a gritty Florida squad that won its first two tournament games by an average of 20.5 points.

The upset of Villanova elevated the Badgers into the trendy pick to also knock off the Gators, and Florida coach Mike White is just fine with rounding up the information to use as excess ammunition.

"I'd rather that than the alternative, I won't lie to you," White said. "I don't know how much of a factor it plays, but I said it the other day: If you have (something) to get you angry, might as well use it.

"I understand why a lot of people would pick Wisconsin. Totally understand that. Our guys do too. Maybe it's motivation, maybe it's not."

Sophomore guard KeVaughn Allen is Florida's leading scorer at 13.4 points per game, but averaged 5.5 points on 3-of-21 shooting in the victories over East Tennessee State and Virginia.

Senior swingman Canyon Barry (11.8) is the team's second-leading scorer but junior forward Devin Robinson (11.4) is serving as the difference-maker.

Robinson set the tone by averaging 19 points (on 15-of-25 shooting) and nine rebounds in the tournament.

"I think me getting an early start, it gets everybody going, and I'm not a selfish guy," Robinson said of his strong play. "So I'm fired up, and I'm giving my teammates the ball. When we're all sharing the ball, it's going to be a positive outcome."

The Badgers are also known for sharing the ball behind a well-balanced attack.

Koenig averages a team-best 14.5 points and made a school-record 100 3-pointers. Koenig also holds the school mark of 267 career 3-pointers and drained 31 in NCAA tourney play.

Sophomore forward Ethan Happ averages 13.8 points and a team-best 9.1 rebounds, and senior forward Nigel Hayes contributes 13.8 points and 6.6 boards.

The extensive tournament experience of Koenig and Hayes gives the Badgers a comfortable feeling entering Friday's contest.

"They understand it's one game at a time," Wisconsin coach Greg Gard said. "You're working for 40-minute segments. If you don't play well enough in that 40 minutes in front of you, you don't have another one.

"We have another 40-minute opportunity on Friday night. If we're good enough, we'll have another one."

This is the fifth meeting between Wisconsin and Florida. The Badgers won the most recent encounter 59-53 early in the 2013-14 season when Bo Ryan (Wisconsin) and Billy Donovan (Gators) were the coaches.
