The Wisconsin Badgers and Houston Cougars face off in a college basketball showdown in the second round of the Maui Invitational at the Mandalay Bay Events Center. 

The Wisconsin Badgers come into this game with a 3-1 record overall and they had a nice win in their first game of this tournament. The defense was strong against the Texas A&M Aggies giving up only 58 points and that was enough for the 11 point victory. The only loss for Wisconsin was against Providence and they could only manage 58 points in that game. The Badgers are averaging 70 points while their defense is giving up 53.3 points per game. Wisconsin is led by Brad Davison who is averaging 16 points while shooting 45.5 percent from the field. Johnny Davis is also having a big season averaging 15 points and 5.3 rebounds per game. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Houston Cougars who sit with a 4-0 record and they had a solid win over the Butler Bulldogs. The defense was elite giving up only 52 points and that was enough to come away with the 18 point victory. Houston has been strong on both sides of the ball. The Cougars are averaging 74.8 points per game while their defense is giving up 55 points per game. The 55 points given up per game is the 18th best in college basketball. Guard Marcus Sasser has been the best player for Nevada averaging 23.3 points while shooting 46.8 percent from the field. Kyler Edwards has also had a big season averaging 15.3 points while shooting 39.5 percent from the field. Houston needs to get out to a fast start with their offense in this game, and really try to put the pressure on the Badgers to attack their defense.

The Badgers and Cougars both care a lot about their defense and it’s going to be no different in this game. I expect both offenses are going to struggle to score, and the Badgers are going to make sure the pace of this game is slow. Look for this game to finish around the 120 mark and the under is going to cash.
