    The Ohio State Buckeyes will travel to Madison, Wisc. to take on the Wisconsin Badgers in the Kohl Center Thursday night.

    The Buckeyes (14-9, 6-4 Big Ten) are looking to bounce back from a tough 66-61 loss at home to the Maryland Terrapins last Sunday. Ohio State led for much of the first half until Maryland broke a 31-31 tie with six straight points to close the first half. The Terps and Buckeyes battled back and forth in the second half, but Maryland was able to stave off a late Ohio State run to seal the victory. The Buckeyes were able to win the turnover battle (13-8) but shot a disastrous 58.3 percent from the line (14-of-24). Jae’Sean Tate was the only Buckeye to finish in double figures as he led Ohio State with 16 points.

    The Badgers (13-9, 5-4 Big Ten) have really turned it around since starting out 1-4 in Big Ten play. Since then, Wisconsin has won its last four including a 63-55 win at Illinois its last time out. The Badgers grabbed their first lead with less than five minutes remaining in the first half and would never trail again. Wisconsin won the battle on the boards, 37-25, and was more efficient from the field (44.0 percent) than Ohio State (36.0 percent). Nigel Hayes led the Badgers with a team-high 17 points, while Bronson Koenig (11) and Khalil Iverson (10) were the other Badgers in double figures.

    Thursday’s game will mark the 155th meeting between Ohio State and Wisconsin with the Buckeyes leading the all-time series, 86-68. However, the Badgers hold a 44-29 edge in the series when playing at home.

    Prediction

    The Badgers have hit their stride and are on a roll, winning four consecutive games. Nigel Hayes and Bronson Koenig are two of the best in the conference when playing at the best of their ability. If you add in solid play from Ethan Happ in a game at the Kohl Center, not even a pesky Buckeyes team can stop that. Expect Wisconsin to get it’s fifth straight win in a classic Big Ten battle.
