No. 4 Florida

Coach: Mike White, second year

Overall record: 26-8

Scoring leader: KeVaughn Allen, sophomore (13.4)

Rebounding leader: Devin Robinson, junior (6.3)

Assists leader: Kasey Hill, senior (4.5)

Famous non-athlete alum: Erin Andrews, Fox Sports sportscaster

Why Florida can win:

Despite losing post manJohn Egbunu, Forida boasts a physical lineup that can hit 3-pointers and punish teams in the paint. Junior forwardDevin Robinson has emerged as a double-double threat andJustin Leon has added a great outside shot to his arsenal.

The Gators have multiple players who can step up and take over games. It's hard to game plan against them, which is why they punished Virginia's stingy defense.

No. 8 Wisconsin

Coach: Greg Gard, second year

Overall record: 27-9

Scoring leader: Bronson Koenig, senior (14.5)

Rebounding leader: Ethan Happ, sophomore (9.1)

Assists leader: Ethan Happ, sophomore (2.8)

Famous non-athlete alum: Frank Lloyd Wright, architect

Why Wisconsin can win:

This veteran group struggled a bit down the stretch in the Big Ten, but that conference has provedto be deep and talented with a number of good performances in the tournament. A few small injuries and lackluster play are in the rear-view mirror, so the Badgers are ready to live up to theirpreseason expectations.

Ethan Happ and Nigel Hayes are loads in the paint. They get a lot of offensive rebounds, which allows them to often score near the basket. Bronson Koenig has been inconsistent this season, but he is playing his best basketball right now.
