The Prairie View A&M Panthers take the hardwwood with the #6 Wisconsin Badgers.
Prarie View has the typical problems one would expect for a team that is 2-9 and the obvious is not enough offense or defense on a consistent basis. That trend continued in a 92-53 loss Western Michigan as the Panthers trailed by 16 at the break and never challenged with 34% shooting and 17 turnovers while the Broncos sank shots at 57%. When the final buzzer sounded the Panthers didn't have enough scoring options with Demondre Chapman the game's high scorer with 23 points and seven rebounds with John Briscoe the next closest with seven points.

Wisconsin looks as good as ever with great scoring ability and suffocating defense combining to build a 12-0 record. The Badgers have been involved in a number of one sided affairs with an 86-61 decision over Eastern Kentucky last time out being the rule rather then the exception. Wisky raced out to a 19 point lead after 20 minutes behind 60.5% from the floor and never looked back with advantages throughout including a 25-9 edge at the foul line. Ben Brust paced the scoring with 20 points and six yanks with Nigel Hayes netting 17 followed by Sam Dekker with a 16 point effort while Frank Kaminsky tossed in 13 points and snagged six rebounds.
Prairie View really has struggled defensively so I would say Wisconsin wins big but the spread is simply out of this world. The Badgers do have it in them to cover but this is not for the feint of heart...
