Wisconsin Vs. Butler: Shelvin Mack Keying Bulldogs Offense Early

After an early scoring drought, the game has opened up a bit in New Orleans in the Sweet 16. Shawn Vanzant hit a three from the corner to give Butler its first lead, 6-5. Shelvin Mack followed that up with a steal and fast-break lay-in as both teams appeared to finally begin to settle in and find a few easy buckets.

The Badgers answered from long-range again as Keaton Nankivil drilled a contested three to knot the game at eight. Mack has been everywhere for the Bulldogs, converting a lay-in and the free throw after working hard inside for a bucket and drawing another foul in the paint on the next time down.

After missing his first two shots, Jordan Taylor finally got on the board, stroking a pretty two from the free throw line to bring the Badgers to within one, 11-10, at the under 12-minute timeout.
