Believe it or not, the Wisconsin Badgers athletic program is one of the oldest in collegiate sports, dating back to the turn of the 20th century. The Badgers were one of the most successful basketball teams in the early part of the 20th century, winning the national championship three times- 1912, 1914, and 1916. Since collegiate sports went to a tournament field, the Badgers have only won the NCAA tournament one time, and that was in 1941. They have made the Final Four a total of four times: 1941, 2000, 2014, and 2015. Expanding from that, the Badgers have made the Elite Eight five times, plus 1947 and 2005. Expanding out even further they have made the Sweet Sixteen seven times: 2000, 2003, 2007, 2008, 2011, 2012, and 2014. They also won the Big Ten Tournament in 2004 and 2008.
