Wisconsin isn't out of the woods yet. The Badgers (12-9, 4-4 Big Ten) could undo the momentum from their overtime win over Indiana with a loss to Illinois in Champaign. The Illini (10-11, 2-6) are coming off two straight OT games, the latest a home setback to Ohio State on Thursday.

Jordan Hill will be starting in place of a hobbled Vitto Brown for the Badgers, though Brown is expected to play.
