KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The NCAA matchup between 12th-seeded Mississippi and fifth-seeded Wisconsin will be a collision of style as much as will.
The Rebels (26-8) love to run, rang up almost 80 points a game and are led by one of college basketball's most flamboyant players in Marshall Henderson.
The button-downed Badgers, in contrast, are known for their deliberate approach and lock-down defense. While Ole Miss was averaging 78.2 points, seventh-highest in the country, the Badgers were allowing only 56. That was tops in the powerful Big Ten Conference and 10th nationally.
The toughest defensive assignment Friday for Wisconsin (23-11) will probably be Henderson. A free spirit, the 6-2 junior led the Southeastern Conference with more than 20 points a game and was third in the nation with 131 3-pointers.
