The Wisconsin Badgers continue their dive back into Big Ten action as they welcome the Purdue Boilermakers to the Kohl Center on Friday evening.
Wisconsin (11-4, 3-1 Big Ten) recorded a blowout win at Penn State on Sunday evening and enters a stretch where it will face Purdue (9-6, 2-2) on Friday, Maryland (13-3, 4-1) next Monday the 14th and undefeated Michigan (16-0, 5-0) on the 19th.
The Boilermakers suffered a rough defeat on the road at Michigan State on Tuesday night, and All-American candidate Carsen Edwards and Matt Painter’s squad will now have to bounce back quickly in this tough sequence of contests.
For that matter, Purdue has not won a true away contest this season heading into Friday night’s match-up (they are 2-2 at neutral sites).
The Boilermakers lead the all-time series 108-71, but the Badgers won the last match-up—a 57-53 contest where Wisconsin celebrated “Frank Kaminsky Night” with a victory.
