GAME THREAD: Penn State vs. Wisconsin

‘90s Day at the Kohl Center! WHOOMP! There it is.

NCAA Basketball: Illinois at Wisconsin Mary Langenfeld-USA TODAY Sports

MADISON—We are just about 90 minutes away from No. 19 Wisconsin hosting Penn State at the Kohl Center.

Wisconsin (19-9, 11-6 Big Ten) sits one-half game behind No. 17 Maryland for fourth place in the Big Ten Conference standings. A win for the Badgers on Saturday propels them into a tie with the Terps for the coveted No. 4 spot that would give that respective program a double-bye in the conference tournament.

Penn State (12-16, 5-12) recently defeated Maryland on Wednesday to extend its winning streak to three games. After dropping eight straight in January, the Nittany Lions have won five of seven contests entering Saturday’s conference matchup.
