Wisconsin vs. Michigan Prediction, Game Preview

Wisconsin vs. Michigan Prediction, Game Preview

Freshman D'Mitrik Trice, starting in place of Koenig, had nine points, five rebounds and four assists (all in the first half) but had an terrible night shooting. Granted, the Wolverines are only 3-2 in that span, but Walton will need to control the matchup with Koenig and keep the Badgers on their toes defensively.

Over the past five games, Wisconsin has lost only once but its effectiveness obviously waned as Koenig fought through the injury that initially occurred in the January 28 Rutgers game and then was aggravated the next time out against IL.

Anyone who has been paying attention to MI basketball knows that Derrick Walton Jr. has been on fire lately. Wagner drilled a 3-poimter with 1:09 to play to give MI a nine-point lead; it was essentially the dagger. Here's my take on Michigan, The Wolverines have shocked Wisconsin. He had started 84 consecutive games for the No. 11 Badgers (21-4, 10-2), including runs to the 2015 NCAA Championship game and 2016 Sweet 16.

Sophomore Ethan Happ scored 22 points to lead the Badgers, but only four came after halftime when MI employed more double-teams on him in the second half.

Happ finished with a game-high 22 points to go along with six assists, and sophomore swingman Khalil Iverson added 10 points off the bench. Freshman point guard D'Mitrik Trice will take Koenig's place in the starting lineup. "But I just tried to stay within (myself) and hopefully hit another shot".

Seemingly stuck in an offensive rut for weeks, No.11 Wisconsin broke free in the second half, shooting 51.5 percent after halftime to knock off No.23 Maryland at the Kohl Center.

A major storyline throughout the first half was defense. After getting doubled often in the second half, Happ was held to four points and four shots.

MI has lost five straight meetings with Wisconsin - including a four-point loss in January - but a home victory Thursday would be a big boost to its Tournament chances.

Instead, he hit a midrange jumper with 11:56 left in the first half and felt it all come back.
