Fans hoping to see both Wisconsin and Marquette play in the NCAA Tournament this weekend won't have to decide between the two teams.

Both the Golden Eagles and Badgers play first-round games Friday in Boise, Idaho.

Marquette (24-9), the No. 6 seed in the West region, face No. 11 seed Utah State -- regular-season and tournament champion of the Western Athletic Conference -- at 11:30 a.m.

Wisconsin (19-12) received the No. 12 seed in the East and takes on No. 5 seed Florida State at approximately 8:55 p.m. The Seminoles (25-7) lost to Duke Sunday in the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament championship game Sunday.

The Badgers make a school-record 11th consecutive apperance in the Big Dance while the Golden Eagles play in a fourth consecutive NCAA Tournament for the first time since ending a 10-season streak in 1980.

All tournament games will be carried by CBS (Channel 58 in Milwaukee).
