GAME THREAD: No. 17 Maryland vs. Wisconsin
MADISON -- Be sure to stay informed with all the action inside the Kohl Center on Tuesday night as Wisconsin looks to upset another Top 25 team in the No. 17 Maryland Terrapins.
Wisconsin (10-6 overall, 3-2 Big Ten) comes off an impressive nine-point win over Penn State on Saturday thanks in part to Micah Potter's career-high 24 points and 13 rebounds.
Maryland (13-3, 3-2) fell on the road at Iowa last Friday, but the Terps hope to assert themselves away from the XFINITY Center with help from guard Anthony Cowan, Jr. and Jalen Smith.
