Badgers Clinch the Big Ten Championship
Your Wisconsin Badgers have won the Big Ten Championship in Men's Basketball. UW beat Northwestern on Saturday 65-52 to clinch the title outright after Purdue lost to Indiana earlier in the week.
The Badgers also jumped 2 spots from 8 to 6 in the Coaches poll. UW will play the winner of the Michigan vs Iowa game in the Big Ten Tournament. The Badgers are the #1 seed and also get a first round bye taking on the winner of Thursday' game. UW will play on Friday at 11.
The Big Ten title and a deep run in their conference tourney could make the Badgers a #2 seed for the NCAA tourney. A loss early could drop them to a #3 or even a #4 seed.
