Wisconsin, Ohio State try to avoid another slip

Published On: Jan 29 2013 06:40:02 AM CST

COLUMBUS, Ohio -

It's a long season in the Big Ten. It's particularly long if you're playing catch-up.

Both Wisconsin and No. 11 Ohio State hope to avoid that fate on Tuesday night when they meet at Value City Arena. Each is 5-2 in league, leaving them tied for fourth and a game back of co-leaders Michigan and Indiana starting the week.

Each knows another slip will make the rest of the season an uphill slog against very few creampuffs in the nation's strongest men's basketball conference.

The Badgers (14-6, 5-2) ended a brief two-game skid with a tense 45-44 win at home against Minnesota on Saturday.

The Buckeyes (15-4, 5-2) have won four of five, including a 65-51 victory at Penn State on Saturday -- their second win in a row.
