Badgers headed back to Final Four

For many reasons, Wisconsin-Arizona II—the teams met in a regional final last year—should be must-see TV. The Wildcats (34-3) and Badgers (34-3), who meet at 5:09 p.m. Saturday at the Staples Center, share so many traits they appear to be built by the same architect.
