Wisconsin's reputation as road warriors will be put to the test in hostile Carver-Hawkeye Arena tonight as the Badgers try to atone for an earlier loss to Iowa this season. That game sent UW into a three-game tizzy, but Bo Ryan's crew has responded by going 8-2 in conference after the bad start.

Will Ben Brust finally break out of his slump on the floor he once destined to be his home? Stay tuned. Whichever team can enforce this pace will likely win this matchup, as Bo Ryan and Fran McCaffery employ vastly different styles of play. Iowa got the best of Wisconsin in transition last time, and avoiding those mental lapses that Jordan Taylor spoke about earlier this week will be key. Of course, shooting a little better this time would help too.
