Go B1G?

On Wisconsin?
On Wisconsin?
Mary Langenfeld-USA TODAY Sports

Two nights after Wisconsin produced a thrilling upset win over the undefeated Kentucky Wildcat juggernaut, they're back in action against another kinda sorta juggernaut sporting a handful of future NBA Draft Lottery picks.  Do they have enough left in the tank to do it again?  Then again, maybe the more apt question is whether or not Duke and their much-improved defense can stop the very real juggernaut that is the Wisconsin offense.  Wisconsin's offense has been operating at absolutely historic levels of efficiency and potency all season long and it just ripped through two of the best defenses in the sport this year (Arizona and Kentucky).  Do the Dukies have the answer for stopping Wisconsin's offense?  With the way Frank Kaminsky and Sam Dekker have been playing over the last few weeks... probably not.

But Duke does have their own very potent 1-2 punch in Jahlil Okafor and Justise Winslow (who, like Dekker, has been balling out of control in the tourney so far) and Coach K and the Blue Devils probably won't be as arrogant as Calipari and Kentucky were in not watching film of the Badgers.  This should be fun.

Who are you rooting for?  Does Duke hate and/or a desire to see the Big Ten claim its first hoops national title in 15 years compel you to root for the Badgers?  Or does antipathy for Bo Ryan and Co. run so deep that you'd rather see Coach K and Duke win (again)?  Hit up the comments with your responses.
