GAME THREAD: Wisconsin Badgers vs. Temple Owls

Wisconsin begins a seven-game home stand against Temple, a team which already took down Minnesota earlier this year and has played its last two ranked opponent tough.

Hoping to fan its Syracuse win into the full-blown flame of a winning streak, the Wisconsin Badgers (5-3) return to the friendly confines of the Kohl Center. In theory, the Temple Owls (3-3) should be the toughest opponent UW has hosted so far, having lost all three times to ranked teams. The Owls will have no problem playing at the slower pace that the Badgers prefer -- this could be the slowest game of the season for both teams.
