You might remember Texas A&M-Corpus Christi from the much too uncomfortable first half they played against Wisconsin in the first round of the 2007 NCAA Tournament, before the Badgers came through with a 13-point win. Much like that team, these Islanders (7-2) are very experienced. They already have some road and neutral site wins this season. Meanwhile, Wisconsin (6-5) needs to drum up some momentum any way it can to regain that ol' Kohl Center magic.
