NCAA Basketball: Big Ten Conference Tournament-Maryland vs Wisconsin Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

One down, three to go for the Wisconsin Badgers as they attempt to run the table in the Big Ten Tournament and clinch an automatic spot among 67 other teams for March Madness.

In their way, well, are the No. 1 overall seed Michigan State Spartans.

The Spartans and Badgers will match up for the second time in five days after Tom Izzo’s team came away with a 68–63 win at the Kohl Center last Sunday despite a career-high 30 points from true freshman guard Brad Davison.

In its opening tournament game in New York City on Thursday, Wisconsin struggled shooting, but its defensive performance and clutch pivotal plays from Brevin Pritzl, Ethan Happ, and Khalil Iverson in the closing minutes guided the Badgers past Maryland in a 59–54 win.

When and where is the game?

Wisconsin and Michigan State will tip off at 11 a.m. CT at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

How can I watch?

The game will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network with Brian Anderson, Shon Morris, and Mike Hall. You can also watch on BTN2Go (iOS/Android) and FOXSportsGO (iOS/Android).

How can I listen to it on the radio?
