The Badgers are a top-10 team once again.
Wisconsin sits in fourth-place in the Big Ten standings, but there might not be a team in the conference with a better NCAA tournament resume than the Badgers.
With 12 seconds left in Sunday’s game, Adreian Payne gave Michigan State all the momentum.
No Keith Appling. No Branden Dawson. Adreian Payne playing in just his second game after sitting out seven straight with a foot injury.
It wasn’t the blowout it was in the first meeting this season between Illinois and Wisconsin, but just like that Jan. 8 matchup in Madison, the Badgers were simply the better team.
