Image unavailable osqizb
Since suffering a three-game losing streak earlier in league play, the Wisconsin men's basketball team has reeled of three consecutive wins. A fourth at Illinois would be pretty impressive.
Before this afternoon's tip-off, BadgerBlitz.com analyzes the potential matchups between the Badgers and Illini to provide a closer look at UW's key Big Ten matchup.
Quick Notes:
-Wisconsin continues to play defense at an impressive rate. So far opponents are scoring just 49 points per game against the Badgers, good for a nation's best in scoring defense.
-The Badgers are 5-2 away from the Kohl Center, including three wins in true road environments. UW's most recent road win came at Purdue, marking just the second win in the past 37 years inside Mackey Arena.
-Taylor is Wisconsin's leading scorer and ranks 2nd in the Big Ten with a 2.7-assist-to-turnover ratio.
