Following yet another heartbreaking defeat against Purdue, the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team looks to end its five-game losing streak tomorrow evening at Welsh-Ryan Arena against the Northwestern Wildcats.
Wisconsin’s loss on Jan. 27 marked the first time in Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan’s career at UW that he has lost five in a row and the first time he has lost consecutive home games.
The Badgers (12-8, 3-5 Big Ten), whose last victory came against the Wildcats (10-7, 2-5 Big Ten) Jan. 7, will be looking to shut down a Northwestern team that has won three of its last four games, including a huge upset over previously No. 7 Michigan State in East Lansing.
Leading by five points with just under five minutes left against Purdue, the Badgers broke down again, leaving them with another distressing loss against a conference opponent.
The Badgers return to the Kohl Center on Feb. 5th. I look forward to the Badgers resuming their winnings ways and regaining their home court advantage
