The Badgers' bus pulled out of Madison on Friday afternoon around 4:30 p.m. CT. The travel party got a slightly later start than planned after remaining in Madison until the conclusion of the UW men's basketball game against Wofford in the opening round of their NCAA tournament. Fortunately, the Badgers pulled off the "W" in the nail-biter, advancing to face Cornell in the second round.

Figuring out whether the University of Wisconsin women's basketball team is in the NCAA tournament has been like walking around like a chicken with its head cut off. The bracketologists all say that the Badgers are in and could be seeded as high as eighth. But those people who have inside connections to the NCAA selection committee say that the UW is still on the bubble and a lot will depend upon how the remaining conference tournaments play out. If the favorites win, the Badgers are in. If there are too many upsets, Wisconsin could drop out of the bracket. Many conference tournaments run right up until Sunday so the Badgers could be hanging by a thread until Monday's selection show.
