Loss didn't hurt UW in ESPN's Bracketology

Even the though the Badgers lost to Illinois in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten tournament Friday afternoon, ESPN's Joe Lunardi isn't punishing them. In his latest Bracketology prediction, Lunardi still has Wisconsin as a No. 4 seed, which is the same position he had them prior to Friday's game.

Lunardi has projected Wisconsin as a No. 4 seed in the West bracket. In that scenario, the Badgers would play No. 13 seed Rhode Island in the first round out in San Jose, Calif. The winner of that game would then face the winner of the 5-12 game between BYU (5) and Siena (12). By the way, Duke is the No. 1 seed in that bracket.

The Sporting News dropped Wisconsin from a No. 3 seed to a No. 4 seed. Bracketology 101 also has Wisconsin as a No. 4 seed, this time playing in the Midwest Bracket in which Kansas is the No. 1 seed. According to Bracketology 101, the Badgers would travel to Spokane, Wash. to face No. 13 seed Murray State.
