Why Wisconsin Will Win
The Badgers have finally been able to get this whole thing going … maybe.
They’ve been rocky and inconsistent all season long, but they’ve been able tp get back into the NCAA Tournament hunt with a four-game winning streak with – shocking for this program – great defense to do along with a whole lot happening from three.
As always, this is a tough team that doesn’t make a whole lot of mistakes – it leads the Big Ten and is fifth in the nation in fewest turnovers – and Michigan’s defense is among the worst in the country at forcing mistakes. However …

Michigan’s defense is terrific, especially against teams that need to hit from three like Wisconsin does.
This isn’t a strong-shooting Badger team overall, and generating easy points is a painful grind at times which all fits right into the gameplan of the Wolverines.

What’s Going To Happen
Michigan is the Big Ten’s best shooting team. It’s great at moving the ball around, and it should be able to own the boards against a Badger team that doesn’t come up with a whole slew of second chance points.
Before beating Nebraska last week, Wisconsin lost its previous three games on the road. It’ll start a new streak.
