Rutgers vs. Wisconsin: How to Watch, Game Previews, Projected Starters

Jake Kocorowski

The Wisconsin Badgers look to make it four in a row when they host Rutgers inside the Kohl Center on Sunday afternoon.

UW (16-10 overall, 9-6 Big Ten) currently sits tied for fifth place with Illinois in the conference standings, one-half game ahead of Rutgers (18-9, 9-7).

The Scarlet Knights dominated the glass and in the paint during a 72-65 win over the Badgers in the programs’ first regular season matchup on Dec. 11. Now with redshirt junior forward Micah Potter eligible to play, can Greg Gard’s team bridge the gap in rebounding? More importantly, can it extend its winning streak during this crucial stretch?
