Game Recap: Out of the Fight

Jared Berggren, UW committed 17 turnovers

An opportunity to win a share of the Big Ten title was on the line at the Breslin Center. Somebody forgot to tell that to No.22 Wisconsin. With poor post defense and even worse shooting, the Badgers were blown out by No.10 Michigan State, 58-43, Thursday night.
