LIVE BLOG from the Kohl Center: #1 Ohio State vs. #13 Wisconsin

Kohl Center

30 minutes til tip-off: The Kohl Center is absolutely packed for this one. The student section is already full, as expected. This is the second most credentialed game in Badger history, according to the always reliable Twitter.

15 minute countdown: First time seeing Jared Sullinger in person. He is one big boy. The Badgers will really need to do a good job of getting a body on him. On the defensive end, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Ohio State go in a 2-3 zone to keep Sullinger in the paint. If the Buckeyes go man, Sullinger may have a hard time guarding Leur/Nankivil on the perimeter.
