Big Ten Tournament: Michigan vs. Wisconsin Recap

The Wolverines played Wisconsin to a 54-54 tie for 34 minutes, but – as we’ve seen all season – just couldn’t finish off their bigger, older and better opponent. Wisconsin answered Michigan’s valiant effort and closed the game on a 17-6 run and potentially ended Michigan’s season.

Game 29: Michigan at Northwestern Preview

Northwestern has lost quite a few games since the last meeting — the loss in Ann Arbor was game four of a 10 game losing streak — but it also put together its longest Big Ten winning streak in decades.
