No. 3 Indiana (27-5) will play the Badgers for the second time this season at 1:40 p.m. Saturday afternoon. Wisconsin won the teams’ only regular season meeting, 64-59, at Assembly Hall on Jan. 15. The Badgers beat Michigan on Friday to advance to the tournament’s semifinal round.

Indiana guard Victor Oladipo is arguably the best player in college basketball this season. Whatever the case, I think we can all agree he's the most exciting player in college basketball this season, because he regularly does amazing things like this:
