The Badgers finished one game short of a third consecutive Big Ten title after Illinois claimed the crown with a 64-63 win over Ohio State Sunday.


Wisconsin finished tied with Michigan State with a 12-4 conference record, but will enter this week's Big Ten Tournament with the second seed due to its season sweep of the Spartans.


The Badgers will play a conference quarterfinal Friday at 5:40 p.m. CST against the winner of the game between No. 7 seed Purdue and No. 10 Minnesota. That game tips off at 1:30 p.m. Thursday.
