Wisconsin coach Greg Gard talks about facing VT in NCAA Tourney

BUFFALO, NY (WSET) - Virginia Tech's opponent Thursday night in Buffalo in the NCAA Tournament, Wisconsin, fell to Michigan Sunday in the Big Ten championship game.

The Badgers, though, have had a strong season, 25-and-9 overall. Wisconsin is making its 19th straight NCAA Tournament appearance.

Here's what head coach Greg Gard said Monday about facing the Hokies.

Greg Gard, WISCONSIN HEAD COACH, said "They're a little smaller in terms of across the front line but they do different things to compensate for that. And like I said, they've had a really good year, too. I think that's the first time that program's been back in the Tournament since 2007 so they're excited about it."
