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.

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.
