Tonight is step two of the 2012 Las Vegas Invitational and the last stop before departing to the desert itself. Wisconsin will try to keep the momentum going into the road trip that it built the other night during the Cornell game. It will be hard to keep focused on the Blue Hose with a showdown with Creighton looming in Vegas, but if anyone's is up to the motivational task, it's Bo Ryan.
Expect senior Mike Bruesewitz to once again start for the Badgers, who looked dominant from start to finish with the redhead's return to the starting lineup last time out. Freshman phenom Sam Dekker announced himself with an exciting series of plays against Cornell, and has started his push for major minutes as well. The Badgers have many options to go to up front against another undersized opponent. And that's not even counting little man Ben Brust, who currently leads the team in rebounding (8.3 rpg).
Keep it lively in the comments and let's get this thing started!
