Big Ten Tournament Quarterfinals Picks: Michigan Wolverines vs. Wisconsin Badgers
Date: Friday, March 15th, 2:30 ET
Location: United Center, Chicago, IL
Michigan vs. Wisconsin Live TV: ESPN
The Badgers and the Wolverines are both going to the NCAA Tournament, and the truth of the matter is that this game really doesn’t mean a whole heck of a lot. Of course, the Wolverines still have a case to become a No. 1 seed in the dance, but it is going to take them winning the Big Ten Tournament to have a shot. We aren’t so sure about this Michigan outfit, though. The team has the guards that can take the big time shots with G Trey Burke and G Tim Hardaway Jr., but on the inside, there are some issues. F Glenn Robinson III continues to be a disappointment in the Big Ten season, and he is going to have to step it up in this game if the team is going to ultimately win this game. The Badgers are flat out awesome in the paint, and they can rebound the basketball well enough to take down Big Blue. On top of that, Michigan had to play yesterday, albeit against the lowly Penn State Nittany Lions, while Wisconsin was sitting on the sidelines, watching, and waiting. It seems a bit ridiculous that the Badgers are underdogs in this game.
Michigan vs. Wisconsin Pick: Wisconsin Badgers +3
Big Ten Quarterfinals Prediction: Wisconsin 61 – Michigan 57
