Powers: Inconsistently Consistent
Illinois has looked fantastic at times this season, but is has also been frustratingly inconsistent, writes Scott Powers. Story
• Wisconsin spoiled senior day for Illinois and avenged a loss earlier this season at home to the Illini.
• Jordan Taylor and Jon Leuer combined for 40 of the Badgers' 72 points, making up for the fact the Badgers' bench accounted for just five points.
• The Badgers have won seven of their last nine against Illinois.
