Projected seed: 6

Wisconsin's resume has a solid foundation with a notable mix of wins that elevate their profile. Notching a victory against a powerhouse like Marquette showcases their potential to tangle with the nation's best, while handling business against Michigan State solidifies their standing in the competitive Big Ten. However, there’s an anchor weighing down their resume with that heavy loss to Arizona – a game that could have been a marquee win but turned into a red flag considering the lopsided score. The loss to Illinois is a missed opportunity but understandable given Illinois' high level of play. Securing wins in their final games, especially taking another crack at Purdue, could provide a significant boost, yet even with a robust close to their season, past missteps will likely prevent them from climbing much higher in the seeding. The loss to Michigan, a team near the bottom of the conference, is a blemish they can't erase. Defensive prowess, indicated by stifling performances against teams like Ohio State, is a definite strength, and they'll need this tenacity in the pressure-cooker of March Madness.
