Emotions will likely be at a fever pitch inside the Kohl Center ... both on the court and in the bleachers ...

Badgers' make-shift line-up does not match up well, what-so-ever, with the Spartans big, talented & deep roster ...

This could get very UGLY and out-of-hand, score-wise & other-wise, unless the Big 10 officiating crew is partial to Wisconsin, as they have been to the vast majority of Big 10 home teams this season.

Final Score


Wisconsin jumped out to a 43-27 halftime lead on the strength of 58% shooting from the field.  However, UW came out cold as ice to start the 2nd half as well as playing poor low-post defense, allowing the Spartans to climb back into the game, cutting the Badger lead to 3 pts on a few occasions late in the contest. With an opportunity to ice the game in the closing minutes, Badger point guard D'Mitrik Trice, who up to that point had played a very good all-around game (14 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists), left 3 free throws (and a potential 4th) on the floor.  MSU All-American point guard Cassius Winston turned Trice's last missed FT (the front end of a 1and 1) into a made 3-pointer with :02 remaining on the clock for the final 64-63 score.  Bucky was out-scored 36-21 in the 2nd half.

With their lack of depth for the day, Wisconsin. Let them keep the guys on the floor they needed on the floor.
