College Basketball Game of the Week (Week 14 Edition)

This week I am going to be very hypocritical. Or maybe not. I picked the game Wednesday between the #12 Purdue Boilermakers and the #14 Wisconsin Badgers as the game of the week. I actually think that the Badgers have a good shot at beating #1 Ohio State today at home. I do think though that they will lose in West Lafayette Wednesday. I just think that it is that tough to play in the Kohl Center. If Ohio State can pull that game out, then I think they are poised to run the table in the regular season. That should be an interesting game that I hope the Badgers can pull out. That leads to Wednesday when they turn around to play Purdue. Wisconsin is a very tough team. Purdue had them on the ropes up in Madison, but could not finish the game. DJ Byrd scored five straight points near the end that I thought sealed the game for the Boilers. That was not the case though, and they lost. I think that the crowd at Mackey will be the difference here, and the Boilers will get the win. With only a couple more opportunities to see Smooge and JJ at home we will have to enjoy these games.
