MADISON - Greetings from the Kohl Center, where the Badgers will try and extend their winning streak to three games against the Wildcats of Northwestern. If Wisconsin is successful, it will head into a crucial showdown with Illinois on Sunday with a conference record above .500.

While four of the Badgers' five losses on the season have come at the hands of teams ranked in the top 16 of either poll, the team's performance against Nebraska last weekend left a lot to be desired. Another half shooting 6-of-28 from the floor won't cut it against a Northwestern team that knocked off Michigan State last week.

Despite UW's offensive struggles, its defense has been consistently stellar. The Badgers lead the nation in allowing just 48.5 points per game.

The Wildcats have never won at the Kohl Center. Could that streak come to an end tonight?

As always, your comments, questions and predictions are welcome. We'll be here all game long.
