Ole Miss earns No. 12 seed to NCAA Tournament

Posted: Updated:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Wisconsin Badgers will face Ole Miss on Friday in the NCAA West Region in a matchup of teams that are on impressive late-season runs.

The Badgers (23-11) lost to Ohio State 50-43 Sunday in Chicago but still earned a No. 5 seed in the West. They'll face the 12th-seeded Rebels (26-8), who won the Southeastern Conference tournament title for the first time since 1981.

Wisconsin had advanced to the Big Ten final with a pair of impressive victories over No. 6 Michigan and third-ranked Indiana, which earned 1 of the top seeds in the NCAA tournament.

Behind Murphy Holloway and Marshall Henderson, Mississippi gave seventh-year Rebels coach Andy Kennedy his first NCAA tournament berth by upsetting 13th-ranked Florida 66-63 Sunday for the SEC crown.
