New, 84 comments

Just about a half hour from tip-off, folks!

Hitting the road in three of its next four games, the No. 24 Wisconsin Badgers hope to extend its winning streak on Tuesday night against the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

Wisconsin (14-6, 6-3 Big Ten) has won three games in a row since its upset of then-No. 2 Michigan on Jan. 19. In its most recent win on Saturday against Northwestern, the guard combination of Brad Davison and D’Mitrik Trice combined for 36 points while redshirt senior forward Ethan Happ recorded his second triple-double of the season with 13 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists.

Nebraska (13-7, 3-6) lost not just to Ohio State on Saturday but also its second-leading scorer and rebounder in senior Isaac Copeland Jr. to an ACL injury.

Wisconsin and Nebraska are tied at 14-14 in the all-time series between the two programs, and the Huskers hold an 8-5 edge in Lincoln.
