Last Meeting: Wisconsin won 67-63 (1/22/12)

Good morning, and welcome to senior day at the Kohl Center. Jordan Taylor and Rob Wilson will try to close out their final game at the Kohl Center the right way with a win over Illinois, which would give the Badgers a three-game winning streak heading in to the Big Ten Tournament at the end of this week.

The Illini, on the other hand, are fighting to stay in the conversation for an at-large berth in the NCAA Tournament after skidding to a 1-7 finish in the Big Ten after beating Michigan State in late January. The Badgers have already locked up the four-seed and a first round bye for the tournament, while the Illinis are looking at a 9-seed or worse.

It should be a good one from the Kohl Center today, so be sure to leave your questions, comments, and predictions in the thread below. If you're on Twitter, you can follow my live game updates: @JohnVeldhuis.
