Syracuse Sweet 16 Opponent Set: Wisconsin Downs Vanderbilt

After dispatching a Big 12 foe on Saturday, the Syracuse Orange will next get a crack at one of the Big Ten's finest when they take on Wisconsin in the Sweet 16.

The Badgers held on for a 60-57 third round win against SEC tournament champion Vanderbilt, sparked by five double digit scoring efforts. Jordan Taylor, Wisconsin's standout point guard, led the way for the Badgers with 14 points, and played all but one minute in the game. Wisconsin also held Vanderbilt's star guard John Jenkins to just 3-13 shooting and 13 points.

The Badgers - who are coached by Bo Ryan - finished 12-6 in Big Ten play during the regular season and entered the NCAA tournament with a 24-9 record.
