Northwestern is coming off a huge win over No. 7 Michigan State on Saturday, and a road win against Wisconsin could go a long way to earning the Wildcats their first NCAA Tournament bid in school history. After one half in the Kohl Center, the Wildcats are hanging tough. Wisconsin leads 34-32 thanks to some stellar three-point shooting.
Forward Mike Bruesewitz has been the leading man for the Badgers through the first half, hitting two of the team's five three-pointers and scoring 12 points on 5-for-6 shooting. Guards Josh Gasser and Ben Burst each scored five for the Badgers in the first half.
Northwestern finished the half 12-for-22 from the floor as a team. Wisconsin (12-for-26) shot 46.2 percent as a team.
