B.J. Raymond scored 15 points and Xavier finally broke through Wisconsin's defense midway through the second half, pulling away to a 60-49 victory Sunday in the second round of the East Regional.
The Musketeers (27-7) struggled as the Badgers controlled the pace for the first 30 minutes, before Xavier pulled away with a 13-4 run and hung on to the lead from the foul line.
Wisconsin (20-13) kept Xavier off balance, but the tight defense wasn't quite enough to overcome 29 percent shooting. The Badgers were just 16-for-56 from the floor and made three of 20 3-point attempts.
Marcus Landry scored 18 and Trevon Hughes had 17 points for the Badgers.
