Wisconsin has historically gone 1-18 against No. 1 ranked teams in program history and that one win came nearly 50 years ago against the very same Ohio State University. Can UW pull off the upset and knock off the undefeated Buckeyes?
Before tonight's tip-off, BadgerBlitz.com analyzes the potential matchups between the Badgers and Buckeyes to provide a closer look at UW's key Big Ten matchup.
-UW's currently riding a 16-game winning streak at home. In fact, UW's only loss in the past 35 games inside the Kohl Center came against Illinois last season.
-Ohio State has never beaten a Ryan coached team inside the Kohl Center. It's the only venue Thad Matta hasn't figured out and gotten a win.
-Taylor's 3.89 assist-to-turnover ratio is tops in the nation. UW's 1.78 assist-to-turnover ratio as a team also ranks No. 1 in the nation. He also ranks second in the big ten with 20.3 points per game in conference play.
