Can you feel it Badger fans? The NCAA Tournament is so close and an appearance is this team's to lose. The Badgers have lost back-to-back games against Indiana, a team they should have beat, and Illinois, a tough matchup. As long as they can get the win against a struggling Rutgers team, they shouldn't slide too much. Their final game of the season will be tough at Purdue.

While Wisconsin still has to get through the Big Ten Tournament, they are still prepping for the bigger challenge ahead. In the latest Bracketology, the Badgers are projected to be a 6-seed in the West Division in Los Angeles.

Going into March Madness, there are things the Badgers need to work on, such as defending the three-point shot and rebounding. Teams that are better at rebounding and shooting from behind the arc could be a problem for Wisconsin.

So that being said, here are four teams that Wisconsin does not want in their region of the NCAA Tournament.

BYU Cougars

BYU could be Wisconsin's worst nightmare from behind the three-point line. The Cougars may not have the highest three-point percentage in the nation, but they are top five in three-pointers taken and if you take enough shots, eventually they will start to fall.

The Badgers have a 0.371 opponent three-point field goal percentage, the last in the Big Ten. This team struggles to defend the three-point shot and BYU is one the better teams from behind the arc. The Cougars' offense runs on the three-point shot and if Wisconsin has to play this team, they could have trouble keeping the game close.

The Badgers don't want to see BYU in their region because it could be raining threes all day and that just might send Wisconsin packing either early or in a critical time of the NCAA Tournament.
