We all know that the Wisconsin Badgers started the season as hot as anyone, winning their first 16 games as things were looking great for this team.
And then the middle of January came and the Badgers lost five of six games from January 14 to February 1. Two of those losses, Indiana and Northwestern, were hard to take especially.
Now Wisconsin finds themselves in the midst of a five-game winning streak and things are starting to look up again for this squad. The Badgers have one of the better RPI ranks in the nation (5) and their strength of schedule is behind only Kansas in all of college basketball.
Not to mention Wisconsin plays in the Big Ten, widely considered one of the best and toughest conferences in the country. Many like the way the Badgers are playing and have fought through adversity earlier in the year, and now some experts are saying they could make a strong push for a top seed in the NCAA tournament.
Many things would have to go the Badgers way. One would be to win out the regular season and then win the conference tournament. A little help with some of the other top teams losing would also have to happen.
Hypothetically speaking if the Badgers do happen to win the conference tournament, regardless of what happens to other teams in the country, do you think they would be worthy of a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament?
