The 14th ranked Wisconsin Badgers can’t afford to let up now. Coming off of a
63-60 win over Ohio State in Columbus on Sunday, the Badgers are back home to host Minnesota at the Kohl Center tonight.
Wisconsin (21-8, 10-6 Big Ten) is looking to lock down 4th place in the Big Ten standings, which will earn them a first round bye in the upcoming Big Ten Tournament.
Minnesota is headed in the opposite direction. In fact, since the Badgers beat the Gophers 68-61 in overtime in the Twin Cities on Feb. 9th. Since that game, the Gophers have lost four more in-a-row, which makes for a 5-game losing streak.
Minnesota (17-12, 5-11) lost at home to Indiana on Sunday.
Following tonight’s 7pm tipoff, the Badgers will get a few more days before they close out the regular season against Illinois at the Kohl Center on Sunday.
