The Wisconsin Badgers look to get back on the winning track as they face the rival Minnesota Golden Gophers on Thursday evening at the Kohl Center.
Now jumping back into Big Ten play, Wisconsin (10-3, 2-0 Big Ten) comes off an 83-76 loss at Western Kentucky on Dec. 29. The combination of Ethan Happ and D’Mitrik Trice struggled from the field while the Hilltoppers got hot in the second half.
On the other side, Minnesota (11-2, 1-1) have won five straight games—all at home. The Gophers have lost their only two contests on the road, the last being against Ohio State in Columbus on Dec. 2.
Minnesota leads the all-time series 102-100, but Wisconsin has won the last eight contests. In their last Border Battle on the court, the Badgers defeated the Gophers 73-63 last February at the Kohl Center.
