Winning on the road in the B1G seems to be a tough proposition this year.

No idea what Badgers team will show up but it stands to reason that a win isn't likely?

at Minnesota (12-10 Overall, 6-6 Big Ten)  70
Wisconsin  (13-10, 6-6)  52

Final Score


Carbon copy of recent UGLY road wins at Michigan St & at Purdue ... stone-cold shooting from the field (19 of 67, 28%) and from behind the arc (7of 29, 24%). 

UW struggled mightily at or near rim, missing several tip-ins, lay-ups & other near point-blank bunny shots.  On the other end of the court, Bucky did not do a very good job of defending the low post.

Gopher center Daniel Oturo eventually fouled out of the game with just under 2 minutes remaining, but not before committing somewhere in the neighborhood of 8-9 fouls.  Once he reached his 3rd personal foul early in the 2nd half, the officials protected Oturu, ad nauseum.  At one point, Oturu fouled UW's Nate Reuvers twice on the same play, with both fouls going uncalled.

Meanwhile, Badger guard Brad (Cajones) Davison,  who will likely play with a target on his back for the remainder of his college hoops career, was twice called for blocking fouls on plays that one could make a very strong argument for a charging call on the offensive player. 

For the game, UW and the U of M were both whistled for 15 personal fouls.

15 fouls each sounds fair. not a high number of fouls called.
