Ohio State and Wisconsin are part of a five-team logjam at the top of the Big Ten standings. Both teams are one game behind co-leaders Michigan and Indiana. The Badgers started 4-0 in conference play and lost back-to-back games before edging Minnesota 45-44 on Saturday in one of those contests that displayed the fierceness of the league. The Badgers ended a brief two-game skid with a tense 45-44 win on Traevon Jackson's 15-foot jumper from the right side with 4 seconds left at home to beat no. 12 Minnesota on Saturday. The Buckeyes are playing better, having won four of their last five, including a 65-51 victory at Penn State on Saturday - their second win in a row. Junior forward Deshaun Thomas leads the Big Ten in scoring at 20 points per game. Sophomore junior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. (10.2) joins Thomas as Ohio State's only double-figure scorers. Expect Ohio State to romp at home against a Wisconsin team that struggles to score.
