Badgers to face Cinderella


Some have coined Friday’s Sweet 16 matchup between Davidson and Wisconsin, “David(son) vs. Goliath,” but the UW men’s basketball team has spent the week preparing for a team that hardly resembles a small, weak team that on paper has no chance to slay the Badgers.
Davidson might be a small school—its enrollment barely exceeds 1,700—but it is an academic powerhouse and this year its basketball team is anything but a Cinderella.
“We realize that (Davidson) is a good team,” senior forward Brian Butch said. “You know, people look at the seeds and make a big deal about it. But for us, they’ve beaten two great teams to get where they’re at now.”
The Wildcats’ wins over Gonzaga and Georgetown last weekend were two of the biggest wins of the season for Davidson, a main reason why its 22-game win streak entering the tournament only resulted in a No. 10 seed. I sure hope that Bucky can advance to the Elite 8. GO BUCKY!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm going to have to keep saying it until it changes; you cannot lift paragraphs from the Daily Cardinal story without their consent, or without quoting or linking to them! That is plagiarism, which is illegal. If you continue to illegally use these stories, I am going to have to inform the editors at the Daily Cardinal of this infringement.
