It's a must-win in Madtown when the Buckeyes take on the Badgers for a rematch. Will the winning team crack 60 points?

Those looking for a more exhaustive preview of today's game should check out our actual preview, but you already know the gist of this game. The Buckeyes are without a quality road win this year, and with only Northwestern and Indiana left on the regular season schedule, this may be their last chance to do it. Wisconsin is hoping to stay afloat in the Big Ten standings to give themselves a quality B1G tourney seed, if not still an outside chance at the regular season title if Indiana does some stumbling.

You know what this game is going to be like. It's going to be Red and Loud in Madtown, and the Badgers are going to slow down the game, defend with tenacity, and shoot a lot of threes. Can Deshaun Thomas put the team on his back in the second half like he did in the first Buckeye/Badger matchup? Will Amir Williams build off of a strong performance against Northwestern and make his presence known? Will the winning team even score 60 points?

Who knows? As they say, ain't nothing to it but to do it. Let's see what kind of performance well get today from Ohio State. This game will say a lot about whether Ohio State is a top 4 seed, or a 6.
