Badgers, Pointers & UWGB All In Action Tonight

MADISON, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU) The Wisconsin men's basketball team returns to action tonight, when it hosts Northwestern.  The Badgers whipped the Wildcats 76-to-49 in Evanston on January second.  

Northwestern considered that game a wake-up call, slowing down its offense and tightening its defense to go 3-and-1 at one point.  The Wildcats lost by 26 to Iowa last Saturday, but first-year coach Chris Collins said his team still played stronger than it had been.  All told, Northwestern is 3-and-5 in the Big Ten and 10-and-11 overall.  

The 14th-ranked Badgers also had a bad stretch after their initial rout of the Wildcats.  Bo Ryan's team dropped three straight after a 16-and-0 start -- but Wisconsin lifted itself off the mat last Saturday with a convincing victory at Purdue.  The Badgers come into tonight's contest at 4-and-3 in the Big Ten and 17-and-3 overall.  

Also this evening, the U-W Green Bay men will go for their 13th straight victory when it plays at Valparaiso.

The UWSP mens basketball team hosts UW-Eau Claire and the Pointer women are at Eau Claire.

The U-W Milwaukee women host Illinois-Chicago.  And the Marquette women are at DePaul.
