The number-15 Wisconsin men's basketball squad closes out non-conference play today at Western Kentucky (Saturday 4:30 P-M). 

The 10-2 Badgers routed Grambling State 84-53 last Saturday at home.  The 6-6 Hilltoppers are coming off a 71-68 victory over Saint Mary's.  Today's game features a matchup of centers expected to be taken in the N-B-A draft next summer.  Western Kentucky's Charles Bassey is averaging more than 14 points, nine rebounds and two blocks and is expected to be a first-round pick.  Bassey will be facing Wisconsin All-American Ethan Happ, who is putting up 19 points, ten-and-a-half rebounds and five assists per night.  The Badgers resume Big Ten play next Thursday when Minnesota visits the Kohl Center.
