Wisconsin vs. No. 15 Michigan State: How to Watch, Projected Starters

Jake Kocorowski

The Wisconsin Badgers hope to take down another Top 25 opponent when it faces No. 15 Michigan State on Friday night.

Wisconsin (11-6 overall, 4-2 Big Ten) comes off a last-minute victory over No. 17 Maryland on Tuesday night. After an extraordinary defensive play to give UW possession, Brad Davison drilled a game-winning three-pointer with 11 seconds remaining that erupted the Kohl Center faithful. Greg Gard's team rides a three-game winning streak over ranked foes when it enters the Breslin Center, a place where the program has not won since 2004.

Michigan State (13-4, 5-1) saw its unblemished conference record end last Sunday in West Lafayette with a 71-42 loss at Purdue. Despite the lopsided defeat, Tom Izzo's program boasts one of the best players in college basketball in guard Cassius Winston and a standout forward in junior Xavier Tillman.
