Brian Mason: 
It's the Big Ten opener for both schools and a chance to get the conference season off on a good start

Brian Mason: 
Both teams finished up the non-conference portion of their schedule on a strong note, with Ohio State (10-2) riding a three-game win streak and the Badgers winners of four straight

There isn't quite the buzz surrounding this game today that last year's matchup between these two teams drew ... that was an all-day affair that began in the morning with the filming of ESPN College GameDay
Thursday December 31, 2009 12:50 Brian Mason
12:51
Brian Mason: 
Still, the opener of the Big Ten season with a pair of ranked teams and a chance to get an early start on your New Year's celebration gives this one plenty of appeal

If the preseason polls that had Wisconsin finishing 8th/9th were repeated today as conference play starts, where would Wisconsin fall?

Brian Mason: 
Good question. Let's pose that to the fans reading along. I konw the Badgers' stock has certainly risen since then, along with Northwestern, while teams like Michigan have slipped

[Comment From Tim W - MNTim W - MN: ] 
Eddie works an OT game in Champaign last night and he is on the floor this afternoon already? Yikes! Is that unusual for a Big Ten ref? Is the Big Ten that short of qualified referees?

The Badgers are blistering the nets early on, shooting almost 56% and 5-of-8 from downtown. Like a senior captain should... Hughes is taking it upon himself to make things happen. Leuer is sitting with foul trouble, so Hughes it the horse right now with 13 points already.
Thursday December 31, 2009 1:31 Brian Mason

8 assists on 10 baskets is great production for UW. Throw in just two turnovers and Bo has to be pleased with this start.

Taylor tried to take Diebler off the dribble and thought better of it (maybe the 5-inch height advantage for Diebler...) dishing to Leuer who draws a foul on Buford
Thursday December 31, 2009 2:40 Brian Mason
2:40
Brian Mason: 
Now J-Bo called for a block ... his third foul ... OSU plays it in under their own basket
Thursday December 31, 2009 2:40 Brian Mason
2:41
Brian Mason: 
Diebler gets to the rack and flattens Leuer ... it's Jon's third personal on the blocking call

Good shooters have to shoot their way out of slumps and J-Bo is doing that. He's too good to pass up open threes and now he has a couple in the last few minutes.
