Badgers Move Back into First Place

Congrats to Bo Ryan and the Badgers for another 20 win season. The Badgers head into Illinois and come out with another victory, improving to 22-4 on the season and 12-2 in the Big Ten. This puts them into a tie for first place with Purdue, although Purdue did beat them twice this season.

Nevertheless, it was a good win for the Badgers. They started off cold, but managed to win this game because of turnovers. The Badgers only turned the ball over 7 times, compared to the 20 turnovers Illinois had. For the Badgers, Trevon Hughes led the way with 18 points, Marcus Landry added another 17.

The race for the Big Ten Season Title is down to essentially three teams, and let's take another look at their schedules here on out:

Wisconsin: @ Ohio State, Michigan State, Penn State, Northwestern

Purdue: Minnesota, Northwestern, @Ohio State, @ Michigan

Indiana: @ Northwestern, Ohio State, @ Michigan State, Minnesota, @ Penn State
