Wisconsin continues to try to fight to put together a solid resume as they welcome in the Illinois Fighting Illini on Sunday.
While a win over lowly Illinois won’t give them a creditability win, it is a potential to add a bad loss to their resume. As for the Illini, it’s pretty much win the title or go home for them.
The Badgers sit 8th in the Big 10 and with just a 16-10 record as they continue to try and impress the committee.
After going on the road to defeat #2 Maryland, the Badgers went into Michigan State had fell flat in a 12 point defeat. The loss was just the latest chance to add another quality win to their resume.
The Badgers still have a pair of ranked opponents left on their schedule, along with the tourney obviously. They’ll go on the road to #4 Iowa and on the road again for #17 Purdue.
If they can grab one of those wins, it’s likely they will have enough with that Maryland win, Indiana win, and Michigan State (at home) win to solidify a solid resume.
Back on 1/31, the Badgers went into Illinois and grabbed an 8 point win.

The road also hasn’t been kind this season to the Illini. They have gone just 2-5 SU while getting outscored 78-71. Their two wins on the road in Big 10 play have come against Minnesota and Rutgers.
G Malcolm Hill has been the lone bright spot for this team. He’s averaged 18.5 points per game to go along with 3.5 assists per game. He’s also added nearly 7 rebounds per game, as he has done a little bit of everything for this team.

The Badgers know this win won’t really help them for a tournament resume, but it can certainly lose them a spot in March. They had no problem really in Illinois and this one should be no different. Look for the Badgers to really dominate the pace of the game here and attack the bucket, where Illinois is very weak.
