5th Quarter Consensus: Upset alert in Happy Valley

First off, here's proof that J-Bo can dunk. Go to the 9:30 mark in the video. The dunk at 10:00 looks very similar to the dunk he tried Thursday against Illinois.

As far as today's game at Penn State goes, apparently they are hoping for a rare sellout at the Bryce Jordan Center.

Personally, I doubt it.

My prediction:

I feel like ruining my 4-game win streak so I'm going with Wisconsin today. Once again, the key will be for Marcus Landry and Jon Leuer to get their points in the paint. When either of those two disappear offensively, UW struggles.

Trevon Hughes shut Talor Battle down last month when Wisconsin survived at the Kohl Center, but that's not realistic in State College where Battle and Stanley Pringle can hit any shot within halfcourt.

But I think all Wisconsin needed was a little shot of confidence. They could have won five of the six games on the 6-game losing streak, so now it's time for the Badgers to win a couple of the close ones.

Wisconsin 74, Penn State 72

This is a big game for Wisconsin. If they want to have a realistic shot at the NCAA Tournament they need to steal a win at either Penn State or Minnesota. Let's take care of that today.
