Wisconsin is in must-win mode in Evanston if its postseason goals are to remain alive. The Badgers will try to snap a two-game losing streak and pick up a sixth consecutive win at Northwestern.

If there was ever a time for Wisconsin's outside shooting to pick up, tonight is the night. Northwestern will throw a lot of 2-3 zone at the Badgers, so UW won't have much of a choice. Plus the Wildcats are one of the best three-point shooting teams in the conference in their own right.
