Wisconsin Badgers prospects
Wisconsin got off to a really hot start and everybody was ready to declare them back for good, and then they fizzled down the stretch. They lost four of five down the stretch, with their one win in that span coming by just one point over Penn State. They’ve got some nice players, but at 13.7 points per game Trice isn’t a true alpha scorer who can take over a game. All that being said, there are plenty of reasons for optimism. They’ve got the kind of defense necessary for a deep run in March, and each of their top five scorers are seniors, which is pretty rare. That experience will be invaluable.
