The University of Wisconsin men's basketball team is back on the court Wednesday taking part in the 2019 ACC/Big Ten Challenge at NC State. After eight games between Monday and Tuesday, the conferences both have four wins. Last year's event ended in a 7-7 tie so this is nothing new for what many consider the two best conferences in college basketball. Because it is so close, the Wisconsin game may decide the result of the overall challenge.
Wisconsin plays great defense, holding most of its opponents this year under 60 points. The problem has been on offense. That offense looked particularly stagnant last week in the Legends Classic when the Badgers dropped two games. Wisconsin will need to find improved ball movement if it hopes to steal a road game against the Wolfpack.
