For the first time this season, Michigan has fallen. 

The Wisconsin Badgers bested the second-ranked Wolverines with a final score of 54-64. Ignas Brazdeikis, the team's leading scorer, failed to register a single point in the affair. Wisconsin's Ethan Happ contributed 26 points. No other Badger scored more than ten.

Michigan has relied on its three-point shooting for most of the season. Today, it failed them; the Wolverines converted on just 27.8% of their shots from deep. 

The loss puts Michigan at an abysmal 2-14 in the Kohl Center. It was Michigan's second loss in the past 33 games, the former coming in the national championship game last April. 

Ohio State will travel to Ann Arbor on Tuesday, January 29.
