Twitter goes wild as Wisconsin upsets No. 1 overall Villanova

Worse yet, the senior point guard for the University of Wisconsin men's basketball team had pain in his stomach and felt nauseous. While the Wildcats simply followed script as a No. 1 seed dispatching a No. 16, the win mirrored a January victory over Virginia - a game that stands as proof-positive that Villanova keeps coming for an entire game, no matter how slow the start.

1 overall seed and defending champion Villanova on Saturday afternoon, and everyone on Twitter predictably lost it.

"This is a great day for Gamecock basketball", said Alex English, the Denver Nuggets great who scored 22 points in that long-ago SC win. "Because they have multiple guys who can do multiple things, so we just gotta go out there and play team defense". "We'll have a chip on our shoulder and be ready to go". We take pride in it. When Wisconsin needed a bucket most, Hayes took the responsibility on himself and produced his biggest play of the season. We change up defenses more. "You see how well-balanced they are". 1-seeds were pushed, the old classic 5-12 upset occurred, the Ivy League tried to steal the show for yet another year, and a program making their long-awaited tournament debut advanced because of a wild mistake. They limit opponents to 41.1 percent shooting, and rank eighth in defensive efficiency as compiled by, allowing 91.8 points per 100 possessions.

"[I've learned] how to remain cool, calm and collected during moments of either low points in the game or high points, knowing that you may get up, but it may not be over yet", Hayes said. They responded by blowing the doors off UCLA and Duke en route to a Final Four appearance.

Here's how to watch and follow Villanova vs. Wisconsin. Koenig hit a school-record eight three pointers to score a game-high 28 points. They also were ferocious on the offensive boards, grabbing 17 rebounds there.

"Very unsafe", Villanova guard Josh Hart said in describing the big boys from the Big Ten. If a team is just all post game, and you're able to kind of shut down their post game, you can kind of have an easier route. "It's going to be a challenge".

KEONIG'S KLUTCH: When the clock is ticking down, Badgers guard Bronson Koenig isn't afraid to put it up.

Flushed with pride, Wisconsin coach Greg Gard hugged his wife and children as the Badgers' pep band played their hearts out. "But when you have guys who can do several things, it makes it more hard".

Not one of them is in the least embarrassed about being a senior, despite the common perception that the elite players stay in college only a year or two. Both Villanova and Gonzaga won their matchups, while the lower seeds who did win, Xavier and Middle Tennessee, weren't causing major shocks while doing so. Happ leads in rebounds with 9.1 and in assists with 2.8 per game. "I think the real win will be still playing", Darryl Reynolds said. "I learned over the years that you can try, but against those real good teams, it usually doesn't work".

The margins by which they destroyed their (admittedly weak) competition gives every indication this is, at worst, a top-25 team. This marks the 37 appearance all-time for the Wildcats in the NCAA Tournament and third time they have earned the No. 1 seed .

The matchup against Wisconsin figures to be a grind-it-out affair.
