Can the Badgers bring their recent success back to the Kohl Center?

NCAA Basketball: Fort Myers Tip-Off-Virginia at Wisconsin Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports

The Wisconsin Badgers are set to face off against the Western Illinois Leathernecks on Monday, fresh off a two-win week at the Fort Myers Classic, where they beat the Virginia Cavaliers and SMU Mustangs en route to winning the Championship.

With the two weeks, the Badgers stand at 4-2, which they’ll look to improve on Monday against Western Illinois, with tipoff scheduled for 6:00 P.M. CT.

The Badgers cruised past Virginia last week, easily winning 65-41, thanks to a strong defensive performance and a 15-point, 10-rebound game from Steven Crowl.

Then, it took a collective effort to defeat SMU in a comeback victory last Wednesday to ultimately come out of Florida with some hardware.

In Monday’s game, the Badgers are seen as 27.5-point favorites, with the over/under set at 136.5 points.

They’ll face a Western Illinois team that stands at 2-4 on the season with blowout losses to SMU and Illinois.

Can Wisconsin bring back their success to the Kohl Center and earn a victory on Monday?
