  • This is the lone regular season meeting between the two teams who played three times in a less than a three-week stretch at the end of last season. Ohio State won the two regular season meetings but Wisconsin got revenge in the Big Ten Tournament with a 73-63 victory.
  • The Buckeyes come into the day at 6-5 in the conference and are looking for their first three-game winning streak of the season.
  • Wisconsin is 3-9 in conference play but the Badgers have been right there in most games as their scoring margin in Big Ten contests is just -5.0.
  • The Buckeyes have found their stride from long range as they have made 10 or more three-pointers in five of the last eight games. They are coming off a season-high 12 makes from deep in the win at Illinois.
  • Since the turn of the calendar year, the Buckeyes have made 82 three-pointers for an average of over nine per game which is tops in the Big Ten.
  • Dorka Juhasz has been part of the recent success. She has made multiple three-pointers in each of the last four games.
  • Juhasz averaged 13.7 points and 15.0 rebounds in the three games against the Badgers last year.
  • Freshman Kierstan Bell has scored in double-figures in six of the last eight games.
