Welcome into the Kohl Center for UW's 15th Big Ten game of the season. We'll have live coverage throughout the day as UW goes for its 10th Big Ten victory of the season and 20th overall.

It's been a rough couple of weeks for both of these teams as each has lost two of its last three games. Northwestern has seen its NCAA Tournament hopes fade away with losses to Iowa and Penn State.

The biggest question for Wisconsin going into this game is the health of Jon Leuer who returned Thursday night at Minnesota but only scored four points. Will he return to the starting lineup and will he return to the form we saw earlier in the season when he was arguably the best big man in the Big Ten?

Wisconsin beat Northwestern 60-50 in Evanston Jan. 13 without Jon Leuer. It was the first game UW played without their star forward.

Predictions:

Sippin' On Purple: Wisconsin 66, Northwestern 47

Welsh Ryan Ramblings: Northwestern, 61 Wisconsin, 60

Our prediction: Wisconsin 62, Northwestern 49
