Forward Franz Wagner currently leads the team in points though as he has 11 with four rebounds. Guard Mike Smith also had a strong half with seven points and two assists.
Michigan comes into this game undefeated this far this season at 10-0 while Wisconsin is 10-2. The Badgers will need a lot more from everyone in their lineup if they’re going to climb back into it. They have no one in double figures as their two leading scorers (D’Mitrik Trice and Micah Potter) only have seven points each.
The game is being televised by ESPN.
