MADISON, Wis. (AP) - No. 5 Wisconsin appears close to getting its senior point guard back with postseason play just a few weeks away.

The Badgers haven’t missed a beat with sophomore Bronson Koenig running the offense while Traevon Jackson has been sidelined with a right foot injury. They’re 9-0 during that stretch going into Saturday’s game against Minnesota.

Soon, coach Bo Ryan could have two tested floor generals ready to handle the pressure at tournament time.

First there is the matter of taking care of the Big Ten. Wisconsin (24-2, 12-1) enjoys a three-game lead going into weekend play with five games on the schedule.

Jackson got hurt on Jan. 11. There was a rough four-to-six week timeline for his return, which would put him on target for the next week or so.
