Current Overall Record: 20-8
Current Big Ten Record: 11-4
Remaining Schedule: March 3 vs. Purdue, March 7 @ Michigan State, March 10 @ Penn State
Prediction: 22-9 (13-5)
Why: Wisconsin has been as hot as any team in the nation as of late, well, besides those pesky Akron Zips. The Badgers have won six of their last seven games, including impressive home wins against Michigan and Ohio State.
Bo Ryan's team probably has the most favorable schedule of the three teams left in contention for a Big Ten regular season title. The Badgers have what should be two very winnable games against Purdue and Penn State, with a tough Michigan State road matchup sandwiched in there as well.
Look for Wisconsin to win at home against Purdue and on the road at Penn State. But that game against Michigan State will be tough, considering the Spartans are the only Big Ten team to already have beaten the Badgers on their own home court this season.
If the Badgers go 2-1 over this final three game stretch, they would finished 11-4 in conference play and should wrap up a top-four seed in the Big Ten Tournament.
