It will televised live locally on UPN 14, tape-delayed at 11 p.m. on Wisconsin Public Television, and video streamed live at uwbadgers.com (game day page). The announcers are veteran broadcaster Ken Syke and former assistant coach Dawn Crim. All post game news conferences are also live video streamed at uwbadgers.com.
The Badgers faced two nationally-ranked foes after the holidays losing at No. 22 Boston College 76-60, and opening the Big Ten season at No. 18 Ohio State with a loss, 65-46. UW had a tough 60-39 loss at Indiana Thursday.
There appears to be more strength than ever in the conference as the Big Ten tops the RPI charts which combine success and strength of schedule. All the Big Ten teams began the conference season with .500 or above records. Last year UW was 2-7 when entering league play and this year it was 5-4.
