4 teams Wisconsin does not want in their NCAA Tournament region

Wisconsin is sitting comfortably knowing they are fairly safe when it comes to the NCAA Tournament. However, when they get there, here are four teams they would not want in their region.

Florida Gators

Florida is the best rebounding team in the nation. They average 43.3 rebounds a game compared to Wisconsin's 33.8 per game. The Gators are amazing on the offensive boards averaging 15.6 per game while Wisconsin only 9.9 per game.

Florida would have the ability to get more second-chance possessions and take time away from Wisconsin. Even if the Gators can't score on those second and third possessions, they are taking time off the clock, not allowing Wisconsin to have that time of possession.

When the game runs down, rebounds and defense win championships so in turn it wins games and I think Florida would have Wisconsin beat in that category. The Badgers should hope they can avoid the Gators at all costs.
