March Madness 2012, Syracuse Vs. Wisconsin: TV Schedule, Game Time And More

The East Region's top seed Syracuse faces a stiff task on Thursday as it takes on the Wisconsin Badgers, a tough, defensives-minded team with ample tournament experience.

The Orange arrive in Boston for the Sweet 16 after escaping an historic upset at the hands of UNC-Asheville and then upending Kansas State in the round of 32. Wisconsin, meanwhile, narrowly edged Vanderbilt in the third round of tournament play after romping Montana to start the tournament.

Senior guard Jordan Taylor leads the way for the Badgers with 14.7 points and 4.0 assists per game. The Badgers strength rests in their defensive-minded approach, and they'll need to clamp down on a Syracuse team that can hurt you in a number of ways.

The Orange remain without center Fab Melo, who was ruled ineligible in the days leading up to the tournament. His absence has been felt most on the glass, where he led Syracuse with 5.8 rebounds per game.

Game Time: 7:15 p.m. EST

TV Coverage: CBS
