Welcome to the Gameday Blog for tonight's Big Ten matchup between the Badgers and Michigan live from the Kohl Center!

Brian Mason: 
We're a little more than 15 minutes out from the opening tip, but the student section is already full on the first level of the Kohl Center
Wednesday January 20, 2010 7:18 Brian Mason
7:20
Brian Mason: 
The Badgers ( 14-4, 4-2 Big Ten) are looking for some home cooking tonight after dropping a road game to Ohio State over the weekend, and the Wolverines carry some big-time momentum after knocking off UConn over the weekend.
Wednesday January 20, 2010 7:20 Brian Mason
7:21
Brian Mason: 
Michigan (10-7, 3-2 Big Ten) is also looking to keep pace in the Big Ten race and is in the midst of a stretch of four straight against ranked opponents

Huge win for the Wolverines
Wednesday January 20, 2010 7:21 grampabucky

Brian Mason: 
A good win for the Big Ten as a whole, too ... those out-of-conference wins tend to help everyone in the RPI department

[Comment From Mike UsedToBeFromMonroeMike UsedToBeFromMonroe: ] 
I think the Badgers have the best backcourt in the Big Ten, is that a valid comment? Maybe top ten in the country?
Wednesday January 20, 2010 7:22 Mike UsedToBeFromMonroe
7:22
Brian Mason: 
I'm not going to tell you it's not valid! I don't think you're alone in that thinking. Between what Trevon has been able to bring just about every night and the contributions from J-Bo and Jordan Taylor, it's hard to complain about the backcourt production
Wednesday January 20, 2010 7:22 Brian Mason
7:23
Brian Mason: 
Taylor is ranked No. 4 right now nationally in assist-to-turnover ratio at 3.4

mike, i think as a whole a few more inches each would help
Wednesday January 20, 2010 7:23 apache jct badger
7:23
Brian Mason: 
Wouldn't hurt. The Badgers are missing Jon Leuer in the front court, but have already shown an ability to win in his absence.
Wednesday January 20, 2010 7:23 Brian Mason
7:23
[Comment From MasonMason: ] 
Any news on Leuer?
Wednesday January 20, 2010 7:23 Mason
7:24

First of all, awesome name. Second of all, no. No timetable has been set for Jon's return.

Brian Mason: 
Holding serve on your home court goes a long way this time of year ... Badgers already have a couple of solid road wins in conference play, but making the most of your opportunities at home is key
Wednesday January 20, 2010 7:25 Brian Mason
7:25
[Comment From Mike UsedToBeFromMonroeMike UsedToBeFromMonroe: ] 
Do you see the Badgers using a zone at all with Leuer out for awhile?
Wednesday January 20, 2010 7:25 Mike UsedToBeFromMonroe
7:25
Brian Mason: 
Um, no. The old adage around the program is that Bo tried playing zone once and lost, and that was the end of that.
Wednesday January 20, 2010 7:25 Brian Mason
7:25
[Comment From Jeff from CPJeff from CP: ] 
I don't think zone is in Bo's vocabulary.....
Wednesday January 20, 2010 7:25 Jeff from CP
7:26
[Comment From Mike UsedToBeFromMonroeMike UsedToBeFromMonroe: ] 
Is Tim Jarmusz considered a solid defender? I noticed he was on Evan Turner a fair amount.
Wednesday January 20, 2010 7:26 Mike UsedToBeFromMonroe
7:27
Brian Mason: 
Turner was a step ahead of Tim a couple of times on Saturday, but hasn't he done that to just about everyone in the league? Tim has done a nice job of staying tough defensively despite having some struggles on the offensive end. Plus, he adds some size the Badgers lack without Leuer.

[Comment From apache jct badgerapache jct badger: ] 
do you see improvement in bruiser
Wednesday January 20, 2010 7:27 apache jct badger
7:28
Brian Mason: 
Of course! I -- and a lot of UW fans, probably -- already feel pretty comfortable with him on the floor. He's averaging about 8 minutes a night and providing some fire defensively and on the glass.
Wednesday January 20, 2010 7:28 Brian Mason
7:28
[Comment From apache jct badgerapache jct badger: ] 
why do you think bucky has to play the silence game re leuer's return
Wednesday January 20, 2010 7:28 apache jct badger
7:29
Brian Mason: 
Because I think it's still up in the air. He's only a week removed from surgery, and now it's all up to how fast he can heal.
Wednesday January 20, 2010 7:29 Brian Mason
7:29
[Comment From Mike UsedToBeFromMonroeMike UsedToBeFromMonroe: ] 
I like Jarmusz. I think he gets everything out of his ability and he does a lot of things well - not great
Wednesday January 20, 2010 7:29 Mike UsedToBeFromMonroe
7:30

Not going set the building on fire, but he's effective. That's what Bo asks of his players.

Didn't know you could take a media timeout between free throws ... the fact that there were no dead balls for such a long stretch had the usual under-16:00 and under-12:00 timeouts stacked up, though
