Wisconsin (20-9 SU, 11-15-1 ATS) is coming off one of their worst losses of the season, falling at home to Purdue on Sunday, 69-56, giving 14.5. Michigan State (22-7 SU, 11-13-2 ATS) has lost three straight games including a 58-57 road defeat at Michigan on Sunday, getting 5. Both teams are in the Big Dance so they are fighting for seeds. Wisconsin wins or covers with defense. They are led by Jared Berggren (11.6 points, 7 rebounds) and junior guard Ben Brust (11.3 points, 5.4 rebounds). Freshman backup Sam Dekker has added scoring punch lately, averaging in double figures in six straight games. But Wisconsin wants to win a game in the sixties or maybe fifties. They hold opponents to 55.8 points per game (ninth in the nation) and 39.4 percent shooting (42nd). Both teams are solid defensively but Michigan State is in a bit of a rut and Wisconsin will bounce back from a bad game.
