Another team that the Badgers are familiar with, Baylor has the potential to meet up with Wisconsin and knock them out of the 2015 NCAA tournament on their way to the Final Four. They have been battle tested and finished just two games back of Kansas in a very tough Big 12 conference.

Baylor has an RPI of 10 and played the their strength of schedule ranks third according to ESPN. They have quality wins over Oklahoma, Texas, Iowa State twice and West Virginia three times.

The Bears have four players that average double figures in scoring, led by junior forward Taurean Prince and his 13.8 points per game. Rico Gathers is a force to be reckon with, averaging 11.7 points per game and an impressive 11.6 rebounds per game. In fact the Bears rank 13th overall in the country in rebounds with 39.2 per game.
