Wisconsin readies for methodical American offense

Posted-March 19th, 2014 4:18 pm

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- If any team can adapt to American and its Princeton-style offense, it might be No. 2 seed Wisconsin.

The Badgers (26-7) have been prepping for the 15th-seeded Eagles (20-12) and their methodical scheme since the brackets were announced on Sunday. They'll face off in an NCAA tournament game Thursday in Milwaukee, barely a 90-minute drive from Wisconsin's home in Madison.

The talent difference between the Big Ten powers and Patriot League champion figures to be wide. Jump-shooting big man Frank Kaminsky (13.6 points) should be a challenge for American center Tony Wroblicky, the Patriot League defensive player of the year.

The Eagles hope their patient offense might be an equalizer against the disciplined Badgers.
