Wisconsin (14-6, 5-2 Big Ten) and Ohio State (15-4, 5-2) head into tonight’s Big Ten
matchup in Columbus tied for 4th place in the conference standings, but just a game behind co-leading Michigan and Indiana.
The Badgers are 3-3 against ranked opponents this season, including a 3-1 record against the Big Ten.
Every time Wisconsin hits the floor, they’re trying to get out of what’s been a season-long shooting slump. The Badgers are hitting just 40% of their field goals in Big Ten play, to go along with a conference worst 52% from the free throw line.
Nobody understands the word slump more than Badger big man Jared Berggren. After averaging 13.7 points and 5.3 rebounds and shooting 51% from the field in Wisconsin’s first three Big Ten games, Berggren has fallen to 6.0 points, 6.3 rebounds and 29% shooting from the field in the last four games.
Berggren is trying to keep the faith with his shooting.
While the Berggren and the Badgers try to shake out of their shooting slump, they know they can count on their defense.
