As discussed earlier today, Wisconsin completes its welcoming party duties tonight in Lincoln after already baptizing Nebraska into the Big Ten in football earlier this fall. The basketball matchup doesn't carry the same luster though.
The big concern for the host Huskers are the injuries to several key players. At best, starting center Brian Jorge Diaz (feet) could play spot minutes off the bench if necessary. Sixth man Dylan Talley (thigh) will be absent on the wing, while senior guard Caleb Walker (back) is going to attempt to play tonight.
Jordan Taylor looked much better against Mississippi Valley State last week after getting some rest for his ankle during finals week, so I anticipate a solid Badger effort across the board in this one. Comment away!
