The Badgers are much a different team than the one that began Big Ten play against Purdue back on December 29. Even so, Wisconsin is an underdog in this battle to lock up a double-bye in the conference tournament. The Badgers (20-10, 12-5 Big Ten) have a tenuous piece of second place in the standings, one game ahead of the Boilermakers (23-7, 11-6).
