Wisconsin

Seed: 5

Location: Madison, Wis.

Record, RPI: 23-11, 31

Best player: 6-10 post man Jared Berggren (11.1 points, 6.9 rebounds) will be a test for K-State’s Jordan Henriquez in the third round.

How far can they go: The Badgers are hot and already have a reputation as a K-State killer. Get past Kansas City and they’d be a rough-and-tumble test for Gonzaga.

Mississippi

Seed: 12

Location: Oxford, Miss.

Record, RPI: 26-8, 47

Best player: Junior Marshall Henderson (6-2 guard) is averaging 23.4 points during the team’s winning streak.
