NORTHWESTERN: The Wildcats got great news on April 20 when F/G Drew Crawford was given another season of eligibility, giving the Wildcats their best player back for the season. Crawford (13.5 PPG, 4.6 RPG) is a menace on both the offensive side, as well as on defense. With his 6-foot-5 size and length, Crawford has the ability to shoot over defenders, as well as harass opponents when they try to score on him. PG Dave Sobolewski (9.8 PPG, 2.8 RPG, 4.0 APG) emerged as a solid ball handler last season, while not having the luxury of playing with the talented Crawford in conference play. Big things are expected from 7-foot sophomore C Alex Olah (6.1 PPG, 4.1 RPG in 22.2 MPG) this season too. The Wildcats have never been in the NCAA Tournament, and are hoping new head coach Chris Collins, a former Duke assistant, will bring them to the Big Dance with his faster-paced offense.
WISCONSIN: The Badgers are coming off a season that ended in disappointment, falling in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. However, Wisconsin has some very talented players coming back, including 6-foot-7 stud sophomore SF Sam Dekker (9.6 PPG, 3.4 RPG, 39% 3-pt FG). He is one of the most versatile scorers in all of the country with the ability to hit from the outside, but all use his size to finish over smaller defenders in the paint. The Badgers will also get back PG Josh Gasser, who missed all of last season because of a torn ACL. Two seasons ago, Gasser (7.6 PPG, 4.2 RPG, 45% 3-pt FG in 2011-12) was a huge part of the Badgers offense as a shooting guard, but will man the point this season in a backcourt pairing with senior SG Ben Brust (11.1 PPG, 5.1 RPG, 39% 3-pt FG). While the Badgers will be missing the majority of their post scoring from last season, they will remain one of the top three-pointing shooting teams in all of the country. Head coach Bo Ryan has been very difficult to beat because of his team's slow-paced style of play, and that figures to be the case this season as well.

*Northwestern-Wisconsin Preview* ================================


Northwestern (10-11) at Wisconsin (17-3), 9:00 p.m. EDT

Wisconsin appears to be back on track after pulling out a much-needed win over the weekend.

A visit from Northwestern could help coach Bo Ryan's team take another step in the right direction.

The No. 14 Badgers go for a 15th consecutive home win over the Wildcats as these Big Ten rivals square off Wednesday night.

Wisconsin (17-3, 4-3) gave up an average of 61.1 points in opening a school-record 16-0, then surrendered 77.7 per game in losing its next three. The Badgers got back to their defensive ways Saturday in a 72-58 win at Purdue, holding the Boilermakers to their second-lowest point total of the season.

"The fashion in which we lost those games is not characteristic to what this program is about," associate head coach Greg Gard said. "We had to get back to some things defensively and part of that was being more efficient offensively."

Frank Kaminsky had 16 points as every Wisconsin starter scored in double figures, and Sam Dekker and Traevon Jackson added 15 apiece. Wisconsin made a season-high 27 free throws in 33 attempts.

"We knew what we had to do," Dekker said. "We took it into the paint more, shot more free throws. In some of those past games, I don't think we were being aggressive enough going to the rim. And when you shoot 33 free throws, you know you're doing something right."

The Badgers have done everything right against the Wildcats of late, especially at home. Wisconsin has held Northwestern to an average of 50.1 points and 38.9 percent shooting during a 14-game winning streak in Madison.

The Badgers have also taken 12 of 13 in the series overall, including seven straight by an average of 19.9 points. Wisconsin won 76-49 at Northwestern on Jan. 2 behind a season-high 19 points from freshman Nigel Hayes.

"Since then they have done a lot of things where they know they can play better than what they did," Ryan said of the Wildcats. "So they're much improved. They're playing well. ... People will tell you in the league they're playing as well as anybody. We know what we have coming in here."

Northwestern (10-11, 3-5) has defeated then-No. 23 Illinois and won at Indiana over the last two-plus weeks, but was overmatched in Saturday's 76-50 defeat to then-No. 10 Iowa. Leading scorer Drew Crawford had 20 points but reserve Tre Demps was the only other Wildcat to reach double figures with 11.

Northwestern, averaging 61.4 points to rank last in the league, was limited to 36.4 percent shooting and allowed the Hawkeyes to make 51.9 percent from the field. The Wildcats are 0-9 when allowing more than 64 points, and they had 18 turnovers Saturday.

"Our margin for error is slim," coach Chris Collins said. "When we play a team this good we're going to have to shoot well and we're going to have to not turn over. We're going to have to hope they miss some shots that they normally hit."

Crawford, averaging 15.6 points, has scored 9.5 per game in six meetings with Wisconsin. He finished with 10 and shot 3 of 11 on Jan. 2.

Center Alex Olah, who scored a career-high 23 points in that game, has averaged 6.0 while shooting 7 of 29 in the last three.

Northwestern has dropped 45 of its last 48 on the road against Top 25 foes.
