Wisconsin reached the Fort Myers Tip-Off championship game after a dominant performance against the Virginia Cavaliers. The Badgers used a stifling defensive effort to defeat the Cavaliers 65-41. Just a few days after UW head coach Greg Gard criticized his team’s defense against Robert Morris, the Badgers responded incredibly.
SMU advanced to the title game with a 70-58 victory over the West Virginia Mountaineers. The Mustangs, led by head coach Rob Lanier in his second season at SMU, finished last season with a record of 10-22.
