The University of Wisconsin men will try to move back into second place in the Big Ten tonight (Wednesday) with a win at Indiana.

The Badgers have dropped to third at 9-2 after losing at home to front-running Purdue last Saturday night.

The Hoosiers are in second at the moment at 9-1, while the Boilermakers are 11-1.

It will be up to Wisconsin senior Michael Flowers to try and stop Indiana's Eric Gordon, the Big Ten scoring leader with 21 points a game.

Flowers does a good job of staying out of foul trouble. The only time he sat out for an extended period was on Jan. 26 at Purdue.

Gordon was hampered by a wrist injury when the Badgers beat the Hoosiers by 13 on Jan. 31 at the Kohl Center. It's still not healed, but Gordon is now playing more aggressively.

Indiana is ranked 13 while the Badgers are 15th.
