Happy holidays y'all. Tonight's men's basketball tilt features Wisconsin taking on the Bradley Braves on a neutral court in the Chicago Invitational Challenge semifinals. For the second game in a row, fans can enjoy the game on the Big Ten Network. Bradley and Wisconsin share two common opponents already this young season. The Braves fell to Wofford, 70-66, on Tuesday and opened the season with a 68-58 win over UMKC. The Badgers have rolled over both Wofford and UMKC by a combined score of 146-64 in the past two games.
You might notice some interesting Badger connections on the Bradley roster. Pay attention to 6'9" redshirt sophomore Jordan Prosser, who is averaging a double-double for the Braves. Wisconsin recruited Prosser fairly heavily when he was an Illinois prep in the class of 2009. One-time UW commit Devon Hodges is a freshman for Bradley but he appears to be redshirting. Comment away and enjoy the game!
