SYRACUSE, N.Y. — When fourth-seeded Wisconsin meets top-seeded Syracuse in the semifinals of the East Regional in Boston on Thursday, the Badgers (26-9) will face a team that relies heavily on its bench.
Syracuse (33-2) has six players averaging at least 22.5 minutes and 10 averaging at least 10.3. In its two tournament games, the Orange's bulging bench, led by 6-foot-4 sophomore guard Dion Waiters and 6-8 junior forward James Southerland, has outscored opposing reserves, 61-16.
Southerland was 5 of 6 from the field in the second half in Saturday's win over Kansas State, while Waiters was 5 of 9. Each has scored 30 in two tournament games.
