    • Forward Tyler Wahl is likely out for this one with an ankle injury
    • This game was originally scheduled for Tuesday, January 25th 2022 but Nebraska had covid issues where they wouldn't have had enough players without pushing it two days later. Players who had covid might have to wear masks which may or may not be pointless but certainly beats last year's scenario of not playing for an entire month. 


    Player to watch: Johnny Davis

    Davis was decent as a freshman but has become a star in his sophomore year.  He's currently top 5 in D-1 in scoring and has become a projected lottery pick in this year's draft.


    Player to watch:  Brad Davison

    Everyone's least favorite Badger is back for a 5th year. With Wahl probably out of this game, it's Davison and Davis as Wisconsin's two big 3pt shooting threats on a team that otherwise is pretty pedestrian from outside.



    The Skinny: 

    Short and sweet here:  Nebraska needs to get out to a double digit lead in this one if they want to win as Wisconsin is too good and too disciplined to give this one away in front of what should be a small crowd.  The keys will be to keep the Badgers off the FT line and to keep committed to working the ball into Walker. 


    Prediction: Wisconsin 74 - Nebraska 67
