Wisconsin is one of just two teams (Iowa) that have found a way to beat Michigan this season. The Wolverines will be looking for some revenge here as the Badgers knocked them off a few weeks back, a game where the Badgers posted 39 points in the second half and shot 45 percent from the floor for the game.
Michigan leads the Big Ten with a 10-2 mark, Wisconsin comes in tied with Michigan State for third place in the league at 9-3. The top five spots in the Big Ten are separated by just a game and a half, which makes this one a big contest as the Wolverines look continue winning at home.
Wisconsin forced 16 turnovers by Michigan in the first contest, which is absolutely uncharacteristic for John Beilein’s group. Michigan ranks third in the country at just 9.4 turnovers per game, which coincidentally ranks just behind Wisconsin’s 9.3 turnovers per game.
Zavier Simpson has posted three consecutive games of at least 10 points, seven rebounds and seven assists. He can really make a difference for the Wolverines on the floor and he is an absolute lock-down defender. Michigan has no problem playing this game at a slower pace and that’s what Wisconsin wants to do as well. For Michigan’s sake, at least they get a shot at beating the Badgers here at home.
