There was little drama in the second meeting between the No. 6 Michigan Wolverines and No. 22 Wisconsin Badgers on Friday afternoon. After a dismal first half for both teams, Wisconsin shot 60 percent from the field in the second half to top Michigan 68-59 at the United Center.

The Wolverines were unable to defend the three-point line, and allowed the Badgers to make 8-of-22 attempts from beyond the arc. 

Sophomore point guard Trey Burke's shooting woes also cost Michigan in this rematch with Wisconsin in the Big Ten Conference Tournament. Burke knocked down just 8-of-22 shots for 19 points. The league's player of the year dished out seven assists, but had four turnovers as well.

The Badgers' big men, Jared Berggren and Frank Kaminsky, combined for 16 points, which helped them establish an inside and outside presence.

The Maize and Blue will now look forward to the NCAA tournament, where it will hopefully face a less defensive-minded team.

On the other hand, Wisconsin will move on to face the No. 3 Indiana Hoosiers in tomorrow's first semifinal.
