The gritty Big Ten schedule continued last week for the Wisconsin men, who find themselves one spot lower in this week’s AP poll but still in the Top 10.
The drop one spot from ninth follows a week including a 23 point loss at #7 Michigan followed by a hard-fought 60-54 win at Rutgers highlighted by a strong second half for D’Mitrik Trice.
This week, the Badgers will have their hands full once again; Wednesday they take on a Northwestern team eager to end an absolutely brutal stretch against seven ranked teams with their first win since a 71-70 victory over Ohio State on December 26th. Then on Saturday the Badgers host the 15th ranked Buckeyes who have won three straight after falling to Minnesota.
