How to watch Wisconsin basketball vs James Madison Dukes in NCAA Tournament round of 64

Wisconsin basketball opens its 2024 NCAA Tournament with a tough first-round matchup against No. 12-seed James Madison on Friday.

JMU has been a trendy upset pick since the brackets were released. We at Badgers Wire disagree with that notion, and instead see a comfortable Wisconsin victory. Las Vegas agrees with that sentiment and has the Badgers as sizable favorites entering the contest.

Up next for Wisconsin, if it is to beat James Madison, would be a battle with the winner of No. 4 Duke and No. 13 Vermont with a spot in the Sweet 16 on the line. Badgers fans do not like the team’s draw, but certainly enjoy the thought of defeating Duke on the way to a deep run.

Greg Gard’s team will need to take care of James Madison before any of that becomes a possibility.

Here is how to watch Friday night’s contest:
