ANAHEIM, Calif. -

Baylor and Wisconsin have never met in a men's basketball game, and the exciting Bears have little in common with the disciplined Badgers at first glance.

Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan and Baylor's Scott Drew both recognized one big similarity as their teams prepared for their matchup just down the street from Disneyland.

Although they arrive from different directions, they both know what to do when they get to March.

Sixth-seeded Baylor (26-11) and second-seeded Wisconsin (28-7) went through workouts Wednesday at Honda Center before they play for a trip to the West Regional final Thursday.

While the building is unfamiliar, the stakes are not: The Badgers are in the Sweet 16 for the third time in four years, while the Bears have made it three times in the last five.
