After taking down the defending national champion Villanova, the Wisconsin Badgers went bonkers in the locker room after the game.
For the fourth straight year, the Wisconsin Badgers find themselves in the Sweet 16, and this one might be the sweetest of them all. The Badgers knocked off top-seeded Villanova in a 65-62 stunner that came down to the wire. Nigel Hayes led the team with 19 points and eight rebounds, and scored the go-ahead layup with 14 seconds remaining to give the Badgers the lead that they’d never relinquish.
Understandably, the players and head coach Greg Gard lost it in the locker room after the game.

The Badgers will face off against either Virginia or Florida, who are set to play at 8:40 p.m. E.T. tonight. Once again, they’ll likely find themselves as underdogs, but after beating Nova, it’s not a stretch to believe they can pull off another upset. You can never count out Wisconsin in the tourney.
