Wisconsin and Nebraska have met on the court once already this season, a little under a month ago in Madison, with the Badgers winning 82-68. In that game, Wisconsin knocked down a school-record 18 three-pointers. Brevin Pritzl was lights out from behind the arc in the Badgers’ last game. It’s not a guarantee, but the conditions are right for Wisconsin to bombard the Cornhuskers from deep again.
Wisconsin enters the game at 7-6, in the middle of the pack of a Big Ten conference defined by parity. Michigan is 12th at 6-7 with Illinois fourth at 8-5. Win or lose, Wisconsin is almost guaranteed to move significantly in the standings. Nebraska is in 13th place in the conference, losers of nine straight games.
