Wisconsin reaches Sweet 16 at buzzer

Bronson Koenig hit the game-tying 3-pointer with 14 seconds left, then hit the game-winning 3 at the buzzer to give Wisconsin a 66-63 win over Xavier to reach the Sweet 16 for the fifth time in six years. Box score

Brian Bennett ESPN Staff Writer 

Terrific game so far between Wisconsin and Xavier. The worry for the Badgers down the stretch is that they have three starters -- Nigel Hayes, Ethan Happ and Vitto Brown -- saddled with three fouls.
