Badgers Beat Michigan

The University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team added an important game to its postseason résumé yesterday afternoon in a 60-55 home win against the Michigan Wolverines.
Going into the game, the Badgers were just one game ahead of the Wolverines (8-8 Big Ten, 18-11 overall) in the Big Ten standings with a record of 8-7 in conference play and 17-10 overall. With their win over Michigan, Wisconsin pulled into a tie with Penn State, whom they have swept this year, for the number four spot in the conference.
Despite getting the big win, the Badgers are not thinking about the postseason but solely concentrating on their next opponent, who happens to be Minnesota. If the Badgers can win their final 2 games of the regular season I believe they will secure a bid to the NCAA tournament. GO BUCKY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
