Fresh off their first-ever Maui Jim Invitational Championship, the Wisconsin basketball team sits at 5-1 and is now the 23rd-ranked team in the country. Their next game will be tonight when they travel to Atlanta and will take on Georgia Tech as a part of the annual ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
The Badgers have a lot of momentum, but traveling for the ACC/Big Ten Challenge is never an easy thing. But from what I’ve seen out of this young Badger team, they aren’t going to back down from a challenge. Even while being down double-digits twice in the Maui Invitational, they still clawed their way back and won their games.
I think we are in for a great game tonight.

Wisconsin vs Georgia Tech Prediction Tonight
It’s hard to look at Georgia Tech this early in the season and really know a whole lot about them. They haven’t played the highest level of competition to date. Their toughest game was probably Georgia, who has been down this year. In that Georgia game, however, Georgia Tech guard Michael Devoe dropped 37 points on the Bulldogs, something that will be very difficult for him to do against this Wisconsin defense.
In their six games played this season, the Yellow Jackets are averaging 75.8 points per game and allow 66.2 points per game. Another stat that stands out is that they average 16.8 assists per game, compared to Wisconsin’s 8.5 assists. They move the ball and set each other up for good shots.
Prediction time. I think it’s going to be tough for the Badgers in their first true road game. But something that really encourages me is the Wisconsin defense. I think they are going to limit and frustrate the Yellow Jackets and slow down Devoe.
My guess is this will be another close game throughout, but the Badgers have shown that they can win close games, even when they are down late. I think that experience is going to pay dividends tonight.
