The Wisconsin Badgers make the short trip to Champagne to take on Illinois.
This a key game in the Big 10 conference standings and if Wisconsin wants to win the Big 10 championship they need to win this game.
This is the first meeting between the two teams. The Badgers won both games last year.
The Wisconsin Badgers once again look like a team that will make a deep run into March, and are in good shape to win the Big Ten Championship.
The Badgers come into this game with an 18-3 record and currently sit in first place in the Big Ten.
They are 14-1 in their last 15 games. They come into this game having won five straight games.
Under Bo Ryan Wisconsin always played a very slow paced game. Now that Ryan is retired though the Badgers actually play a much faster pace. They still only give up 60 points a night, but they do score 75 points per night.
Ethan Happ leads the Badgers in scoring putting up 14.5 points per game. He shoots over 60 percent from the field and pulls in nine rebounds a game.
Wisconsin is the better team in this match up and for them to win they just need to play their game.
Illinois Fighting Illini
The Illinois Fighting Illini have had a good season from their standards. They come into this game with 13-9 record and sit in 13th place in the Big Ten.
They are only 3-5 in conference play and are coming into this game having lost their last game against Penn State 71-67.
This is a huge game for the Fighting Illini. They don’t have a signature win on their schedule yet and the Badgers could provide just that.
The Illini are led by Senior guard Malcolm Hill. He is averaging 17.5 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game.
For Illinois to pull the upset they need to figure out Wisconsin and their defense. They need to be able to score more then 60 points to have any chance to pull the upset.
