Badgers-Wolverines: Michigan Gets Swept

Bleacher Report Senior Analyst IMarch 1, 2009

The Badgers continued down their path of redemption with another win over the Michigan Wolverines on Sunday.

This time it came in 60-55 form, in a game where the Badgers constantly took a big lead, let Michigan back into the game, only to then take a big lead again.

The win puts the Badgers in a fourth-place tie in the Big Ten, neck and neck with Penn State (meanwhile, Northwestern is third-to-last, which is a little higher than where they belong).

Trevon Hughes led the way for the Badger with 19 points, followed by Marcus Landry with 13, and Jon Leuer with 10.

Also in the box score, I noticed that Keaton Nankivil only saw three minutes of action. I know that as the writer of this blog, I'm supposed to be the one giving you information, but could anyone tell me why this was?

I couldn't watch the game on account of the whole serving brunch thing I've been reluctantly doing.

Next up for Bucky, a Wednesday night matchup against the Golden Gophers in Minnesota.

Game time is 7:30, and will be shown on the Big Ten Network.
