Wisconsin hosts Eastern Kentucky at noon Saturday going for its 12th straight win. That'd be the Badgers' best start to a season in the modern era, though Zach Bohannon has already been ruled out and Frank Kaminsky will be a game-time decision.

Luckily, as Phil pointed out in the preview, Wisconsin's guards have proven more than capable of picking up the slack.

Traevon Jackson continued to show off his improved all-around floor game against UWM. He and Sam Dekker were both very efficient. Ben Brust was the latest Badger to break out in the scoring department, hitting on his first four 3-pointers in the first half, en route to 16 of his game-high 18 points.

This one's online only (ESPN3), but it'll be a good one. Our Parker Gabriel will have updates below and on Twitter, as usual.
