NEW ORLEANS (AP) – Matt Howard scored 19 points and Butler sent home yet another higher seed in the NCAA tournament with a 61-54 victory over Wisconsin on Thursday night.

Shelvin Mack scored 13 points and Shawn Vanzant 10 for the eighth-seeded Bulldogs (26-9), who led by 20 points in the second half before withstanding a late rally by the Badgers.

Jordan Taylor scored 22 for Wisconsin (25-9), which shot 30.4 percent (17 of 56). Jon Leuer, normally one of the Badgers’ top offensive forces with 18.7 points per game coming in, was 1 of 12
shooting and finished with three points.

The victory sends Butler into the Southeast regional final, where the Bulldogs meet Florida (29-7) for a trip to the Final Four.
