Wisconsin Basketball Latst Updates 2022: Wisconsin 67, Colgate 60: Badgers turn up the heat on defense and Johnny Davis closes with UW's last 14 points

Cinderella apparently couldn’t score a ticket for Wisconsin’s opening-round NCAA Tournament game. Sure, No. 14 Colgate made it to Fiserv Forum Friday night

And the Raiders, who entered the tournament riding a 15-game winning streak, battled UW for 30-plus minutes before the Badgers turned up the heat defensively and then let Johnny Davis fill the role of closer

Davis scored UW's final 14 points and finished with a game-high 25 and the Badgers held Colgate to two field goals and a total of eight points over the final 10 minutes 39 seconds to rally for a 67-60 victory in front of a raucous crowd

"Colgate's a terrific team," UW coach Greg Gard said. "Saw that from watching all the film that we were able to look at through the week. Credit to our guys, I thought defensively the middle part of the second half on we got really good

"Terrific win. Any win in this tournament's obviously terrific and look forward to moving on to Sunday

The Badgers (25-7) advance to face No. 11 Iowa State (21-12) at 5:10 p.m. Sunday. The game is to be on TNT.  BOX SCORE: Wisconsin 67, Colgate 60

Freshman guard Tyrese Hunter, a graduate of Racine St. Catherine’s High School, hit 7 of 11 three-pointers and finished with 23 points in the Cyclones’ 59-54 victory over No. 11 LSU earlier Friday. Former Penn State standout Izaiah Brockington added 19 points for the Cyclones

By the time UW took the Fiserv Forum court, No. 2 Kentucky, two fifth-seeded teams (Iowa and Connecticut) and No. 6 Alabama had been ousted from the tournament
