Michigan vs. Wisconsin: Live stream info, game preview, picks and predictions & more

Wisconsin will look to move into the top spot of the Big Ten standings when they host Michigan on Sunday afternoon.

NCAA Basketball: Wisconsin at Indiana Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

The 15th-ranked Wisconsin Badgers will return home for a matchup with the Michigan Wolverines on Sunday afternoon.

Wisconsin (20-5, 11-4 Big Ten) won three of their last four games including Tuesday night’s 74-69 road victory over the Indiana Hoosiers. The Badgers still do not rate well by the metrics like KenPom, but they continue to beat good teams. Johnny Davis is one of the top players in the country, averaging 20.7 points and 8.3 rebounds.

After a rocky start to the season, Michigan (14-10, 8-6 Big Ten) also won three of their last four matchups. The Wolverines went on the road and knocked off the Iowa Hawkeyes on Thursday night, and their biggest strength comes on the offensive end. Michigan could be without reserve forward Terrance Williams, who missed Thursday’s game against Iowa with an ankle injury.
