Which Wisconsin team will show up tonight, the efficient Badgers from the first half of last Wednesday's game versus Green Bay or the sloppy gang from the second half? It better be the former if Wisconsin (8-5) wants to have any chance of avoiding an 0-1 start in conference play. Purdue (12-1) rebounded nicely from its first loss of the season with a win over Vanderbilt and will attempt to snap a four-game losing streak to UW.

Projected Starting Lineups

Purdue Pos. Wisconsin
Isaac Haas, So. C / F Ethan Happ, Fr.
