In the Battle 4 Atlantis, Wisconsin is the only team that came in as a top ranked team that hasn’t been upset yet. Georgetown is looking to be that team and to give the Badgers their first loss of the season. The Badgers are been lead by Frank Kaminsky, who has been scoring a team-high 16 points on 7-of-12 shooting with eight rebounds.

Rhode Island beat then-No. 21 Nebraska 66-62 in overtime at home on Saturday to finally end a 26-game losing streak against Top 25 opponents. They will face the No. 11 Kansas Jayhawks who are just coming off their first loss of the season.
