Maryland men's basketball takes on Wisconsin at home on Saturday night. Here's a game preview.
The Badgers have won six-straight games, including victories over impressive Michigan State and Indiana teams. They are playing very well right now and are on the bubble to make the NCAA Tournament. Wisconsin might well need this win to ensure a tournament spot for itself.
Maryland eked out a victory in Madison earlier this season when Melo Trimble hit a game-winning 3-pointer in the final seconds. Can Maryland fend off the upset-minded Badgers in the friendly confines of Xfinity Center, where the Terps have won a school-record 27 games in a row?
With a win on Saturday, Maryland would tie the all-time series between the two teams, 5-5, and would stay at least tied atop the Big Ten standings.
Records and rankings
No. 2 Maryland (21-3, 10-2 Big Ten)
Wisconsin (15-9, 7-4 Big Ten)
Odds: Maryland opened as a 10-point favorite.
