Game Thread: Michigan State-Wisconsin

Arbitrary, half-clever prediction that will make me look like an idiot a few hours from now: The outcome of tonight's game will hinge on the first foul call made involving Raymar Morgan. If Morgan gets called for a foul on defense (likely trying to guard a smaller Badger player going to the hoop), we lose. If a Wisconsin defender gets called for a foul trying to guard Morgan near the basket, we win. (I don't even want to consider the possibility that Morgan gets called for an offensive foul right out of the gate.)

To add to the excitement, the word on the street is that Ed Hightower will be officiating the game. You may have some sense that I don't particularly like talking about officiating. Tonight, that seems all but inevitable.
