John Beilein searches for his first ever win over Bo Ryan today in a crucial match up for both teams. The Badgers stole one in Ann Arbor last season on Josh Gasser's banked 3-pointer at the buzzer. Don't think the Wolverines have forgotten. This one is on national television on a day when Michigan will dedicate it's new Player Development facility, so the crowd will be lively.

Wisconsin is reeling after two consecutive home losses and must make up some ground by stealing a win on the road. Michigan nearly stole one on the road from Indiana on Thursday, falling 73-71. Expect a slow pace in this game, with an emphasis on protecting the defensive glass. The best shooting team will likely claim the victory.
