Badgers sent tumbling

17 February 2017 13:19:19 EST

The Wisconsin Badgers fell for the second consecutive game when they were upset 64-58 by the Michigan Wolverines at the Crisler Center in Ann Arbor.

Ethan Happ led the way for the visitors with 22 points, but was one of only two Wisconsin players in double figures.

Michigan was not much better with three of their own players in double figures although that was enough to claim both the victory and increase the Wolverines' chances of making the NCAA Tournament.

Wisconsin and Michigan are two of seven teams in the Big Ten that currently project to make the Big Dance. Purdue, Northwestern, Michigan State, Maryland and Minnesota are the other five and it is notable that the Hoosiers of Indiana are not in that list.

Indiana has some quality wins over the Kansas Jayhawks and North Carolina Tar Heels, but have struggled of late losing four in a row and six of their last seven to fall on the wrong side of the bubble.

Currently 15-12 overall, but a painful 5-9 in Conference play, the Hoosiers may well have to run the table down the stretch against Iowa, Northwestern, Purdue and Ohio State to push themselves back into the Tournament.

That or a very deep run in the Big Ten tournament and even then, it's hard to see Indiana getting much love from the Committee that has already shown with their top 16 seed projections how much they are down on the Big Ten this season.

Meanwhile, in the NBA, the Boston Celtics are 22/1 to win the title with the Cleveland Cavaliers 18/5 and the Golden State Warriors 10/17.
