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.

Kentucky Wildcats

Like BYU, Kentucky is a great three-point shooting team. This team leads the nation in a three-point field goal percentage with a 40.8 percentage. This team would be an even tougher test for the Badgers than BYU would be because not only do they shoot a lot behind the arc, they know how to sink them.

The Badgers would struggle to keep the Wildcats' big shots at bay and with how good Kentucky is at the three-point shot, they could run the score up fast. The Badgers would have to give a lot of their attention to Antonio Reeves, who is top five in three-point percentage in the nation.

If Wisconsin wants to make a deep run in the tournament, they should hope not to have Kentucky in their region. The Wildcats are projected to be a four-seed right now, so these teams could see each other in the Sweet Sixteen or Elite Eight is they make it.
