The Badgers will need a massive crowd on Thursday, and the good news is that the Kohl Center is already sold out for what feels like a must-win matchup.

Wisconsin’s tournament hopes hang in the balance after Sunday’s loss to Michigan and there are just to regular-season chances left to make a statement to the committee.

The best chance to make that statement? This Thursday, as No. 5 Purdue heads to the Kohl Center.

The Badgers are currently tied for tenth in the Big Ten with two games left. Wisconsin finishes up the season on Sunday at Minnesota. Thursday is sold out, and the Badger crowd has to bring it.
