We have a showdown in Madison, WI, that has major Big Ten regular season championship implications tonight as the No. 8 Purdue Boilermakers pay a visit to the No. 10 Wisconsin Badgers.
Purdue (24-5, 13-5 Big Ten) was one of seven Top 10 victims this past Saturday, falling to Michigan State in a 68-65 heartbreaker. The game was tight until the very end when Tyson Walker buried a step-back three in the final moments of the game to put the Spartans on top. Zach Edey led the Boilermakers with 25 points in the loss.
Wisconsin (23-5, 14-4 Big Ten) has won four straight heading into tonight’s showdown and could be in the driver’s seat for the Big Ten regular season title with a win tonight. The Badgers last bested Rutgers in a 66-61 victory on Saturday, a game where they withstood a second-half surge from the Scarlet Knights. Johnny Davis led UW with 19 points and eight rebounds.
