Wisconsin and Marquette moved their annual men’s basketball clash to November this season because of the Big Ten’s expanded conference schedule. While the intensity was still there between the state rivals, the Golden Eagles were definitely not ready for a game of this magnitude this early.

The Badgers took advantage of the sloppiness and pulled away in the second half for a 77-61 victory on Sunday at the Kohl Center.
