The Arizona Wildcats were beaten by the Wisconsin Badgers in the Elite Eight 85-78.  The game was a rematch of last season's Elite Eight and the game was just as exciting as it was the last time the two teams met. 

Brandon Ashley missed last years game with an injury, but got into foul trouble early and had to hit the bench earlier than expected.  Wisconsin started the game off on a 10-2 to run to take the early lead but Arizona wasn't going to be put away that easy.  They shock off an early shooting slump and played great defense to take a 33-30 lead into the locker room.

The second half started like the first with Wisconsin coming out strong and taking the lead.  Arizona tried to come back but 10 second half three pointers by the Badgers never allowed the Wildcats to really get back into the game. 

Brandon Ashley and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson led the Wildcats with 17 points each and senior point guard T.J. McConnell chipped in with 14 in his final game.

Frank Kaminsky led all scorers with 29 points and Sam Dekker came off the bench to have 27 points.  With the win Wisconsin moves on to Indianapolis and The Final Four. 

If they want to get to the championship game they need to get through the undefeated beast called Kentucky.
