Wisconsin backup guard to miss fourth straight game
Wisconsin will be without a reserve guard for a fourth straight game.
Lorne Bowman III will miss Tuesday night’s heavyweight bout against Purdue. A B1G regular season title hangs in the balance in Madison as the two teams go head-to-head.
Bowman hasn’t played since Wisconsin’s Feb. 15 trip to Indiana. He has missed games against Michigan, Minnesota and Rutgers before being ruled out on Tuesday night.
No surprise but #Badgers will not have Lorne Bowman tonight.

This season, Bowman has appeared in 22 games for the Badgers and is averaging 3 points and 1.1 rebounds.
Wisconsin enters Tuesday night’s game with a 14-4 record in B1G play, owning possession of first place. The Badgers could guarantee at least a share of the conference title with a win. A loss, and there will be a tie with Purdue at 14-5 with 1 game remaining.
The Badgers are on a 4-game winning streak while Purdue is looking to bounce back from a road loss to Michigan State.
