Wisconsin Badgers Win March Madness (Virtually)

The Wisconsin Badgers have won the 2020 March Madness – sort of.  ESPN used its “Basketball Power Index” to simulate the basketball tournament that was called off due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

The sports network says its simulated Final Four included Maryland, BYU, Virginia and the Wisconsin Badgers. Coach Greg Gard’s “virtual” team went on to knock off BYU in the national championship game.  Number-one-ranked Kansas entered the fake tournament as the favorite, followed by Duke and Gonzaga.
