MADISON, WI - So, let the madness begin. The bracket is set with the number one seeds going to Louisville, Kansas, Indiana and Gonzaga.

Wisconsin was given a 5 seed in the West region. The Badgers will be taking on 12th seeded Ole Miss in Kansas City on Friday.

Bucky finished the season 23-11 and is making their 15th straight tourney appearance.



Ole Miss is led by junior Marshall Henderson, who averaged 20 points per game. And the Rebels upset Florida to win the SEC title earlier today.

If the Badgers advance, they'll play the winner of Kansas State and either Boise State or LaSalle.

Marquette is a number 3 seed in the East region. That matches its best seed ever.

The Golden Eagles will face the Davidson Wildcats on Thursday in Lexington.

Fun fact, Marquette has reached at least the Sweet 16 each of the last 3 times it was a number 3

If Marquette beats Davidson, it will get the winner of the Butler-Bucknell game.
