When you line up against Wisconsin, you better be ready for their "in-your-jock" defense.
They hold their opponents to a puny 49.6 ppg (No. 1 in the nation), 36.3 percent from the floor (also No. 1), and 26.8 percent from beyond the arc (No. 5).
A year ago, the Badgers ended Ohio State’s hopes of a perfect season with a 71-67 victory over the Buckeyes in Madison.
OSU is a quality offensive team with multiple weapons. They take good care of the ball (11.8 tpg), score well (77.3 ppg), and because of Jared Sullinger, can pound it inside.
Both teams are heading towards this showdown with winning streaks: Wisconsin (five games) and Ohio State (four).
What to watch: The PG matchup between Wisconsin's Jordan Taylor (pictured) and OSU's Aaron Craft will have a major impact on the outcome of this one.
Last year, Taylor went for 27 points, four rebounds, and seven assists in the upset in Madison.
