Arizona vs. Wisconsin – Game Time, TV Channel, Announcers, Betting Line, Predictions

For the second straight year, the Wisconsin Badgers and the Arizona Wildcats will meet in the Elite Eight with a chance to head to the Final Four on the line. Last year, it was the 2-seeded Badgers upsetting the 1-seeded Wildcats, 64-63. Can U of A return the favor this year? This is arguably the most intriguing matchup this weekend - both teams have numerous superstars.

Date: Saturday, March 28

Time: 6:09 PM ET

TV Channel: TBS

Location: Los Angeles, CA

Announcers: Kevin Harlan, Reggie Miller, Dan Bonner, Rachel Nichols

Opening Betting Line: Arizona -1.5 (5Dimes)

Prediction: While Kentucky is considered a major favorite against Notre Dame in the late game of the day, Arizona vs. Wisconsin truly is a toss-up. Both teams sit with 34-3 records, finishing 16-2 in their respective conferences. Both teams can light up the scoreboard and play lockdown defense. And both teams have a number of stars who will be playing in the NBA sooner rather than later.

So who gets the edge? We'll take Arizona, like the oddsmakers, by a basket. The Wildcats have the better defense, which matters down the stretch. Keep an eye on Gabe York - if he's hitting, Wisconsin is going to need to figure out a way to keep pace offensively.
