It’s the Big 10 championship game from the Verizon Center in Washington, featuring the Michigan Wolverines taking on the Wisconsin Badgers.
Following a scary accident where their plane slid off the runway (thankfully, no one was injured), Michigan has played some terrific basketball this week to make a run at a conference title. They followed up a big win over Purdue on Friday with another over Minnesota on Saturday. One more and they’ve got themselves a conference title. And perhaps a four or five seed in the Tournament.
Wisconsin sputtered to the finish line in the regular season, dropping five of their last seven. But they’ve recovered nicely in the conference tournament, and appear to be primed for a solid tourney run. A win over the Wolverine would provide some strong momentum.
Tip-off is at 3:00 p.m. ET. The game will air on CBS, with Jim Nantz, Grant Hill, and Bill Raftery on the call. CBS will stream the game via its All Access platform (which costs $5.99 per month, but does offer a one-week free trial to new customers). Certain cable providers also offer the ability to stream CBS online.
