CHICAGO (AP) -- It looks like another nail-biter for Wisconsin fans.

The third-ranked Badgers enter the Big Ten Conference men's basketball tournament later today by taking on Michigan State, after splitting two regular-season games with the Spartans.

Coverage will begin at 5:30 p.m. and go until approximately 8 p.m.

As a result, the "CBS Evening News," "NewsChannel 7 at 6," "According to Jim," and "Ghost Whisperer" will be preempted.

"Ghost Whisperer" will air at 12:37 a.m. Saturday, preempting "Everyone Loves Raymond" and "King of the Hill."

Michigan State, you will remember, defeated Wisconsin the day after the Badgers reached the Number One ranking in The Associated Press poll.

Then, last weekend, Wisconsin beat the Spartans in the final regular-season game, but only on a last-second 3-pointer by Kammron Taylor for a 52-to-50 win.

Michigan State beat Northwestern 62-57 yesterday to advance.
