Welcome in to our live game thread for what should be a really good game tonight between No. 13 Wisconsin and Ohio State. Unfortunately we do not have live coverage from Value City Arena tonight, but we'll return with live coverage for four straight games beginning Wednesday in Madison against Michigan.
If you are looking for some pre-game reading, make sure you check out our game preview from yesterday that includes the keys to the game for UW and a not-so-optimistic prediction.
Finally, just a quick note on the broadcasting crew. Tom Hamilton and Jim Jackson are two of the Big Ten Network's best, but they are Ohio guys. Hamilton is a broadcaster for the Cleveland Indians but he is also one of my favorite basketball play-by-play guys. Of course Jimmy Jackson was one of the best players ever to play at Ohio State so there might be a little bias tonight, but I promise you it won't be as bad as the performance Steve Smith gave us at Michigan State Jan. 6.
And since it is a Saturday night game, feel free to play the Tom Hamilton Drinking Game. It's easy. Just take a drink every time Hamilton says "triple". Trust me, you'll have a great night.
