    Nebraska Cornhuskers (11-6) at Wisconsin Badgers (9-8) Date: Tuesday Jan 9th, 2018 Time: 7:30 pm CST Arena: PBA TV Broadcast: BTN Wisconsin Info Head Coach: Greg Gard Location: Madison, WI Conference: B1G Nickname: Badgers Mascot: Bucky Badger Last time out: Lost to Rutgers Typical Rotation Depth: 6+ Line: Nebraska by 1.5 Arena: PBA Tempo: SLOW Defense: Man Style: Low assist % / Low 3pa% Four Factors Effective FG%: 53.3 84 51.3 199 50.8 Turnover %: 17.6 93 18.1 225 19.1 Off. Reb. %: 29.3 172 24.4 23 29.1 FTA/FGA: 33.7 179 27.8 56 33.9 Wisconsin protects the defensive glass, doesn't foul a ton, and doesn't turn the ball over a ton. They also are shooting well inside the arc. Like Nebraska they're good at taking away 3pt shots but like last year's Nebraska's team a lot of those takes go in. You can keep them off the offensive boards.

Wisconsin with injuries to starting PG D'Mitrik Trice and guard Kobe King essentially plays 6 guys while sprinkling in the rest of their bench. Players to watch: Ethan Happ It's all about Jr Center Ethan Happ who leads the team in points, rebounds, offensive rebounds, assists, and missed FTs. Happ dominates the shots and touches in the offense and can not only score efficiently in the paint but also find teammates when double teams come. Happ can be forced into turnovers and remains a roughly 50% FT shooter. Scouting Wisconsin SubTopic The Skinny Wisconsin is a bit of a wounded animal with guard injuries and a grueling pre-conference in danger of snapping the Badgers' NCAA tourney appearance streak. Gone is the slow 3pt shooting, no turnover teams of Bo Ryan being replaced by the not-so-great 3pt shooting and slightly turnover prone teams of Greg Gard. While it could happen, Wisconsin hasn't lit up anyone on the road this year. Nebraska with their plethora of lineup options will spend most of the night throwing them at Happ, trying to walk the line between double teaming him and not leaving any of his teammates open for 3 for too long as most everyone will shoot them except for Khalil Iverson (Iverson is your classic fake a 3 and go to the hole guy) Freshman Aleem Ford is their most consistent long range shooter but freshman PG (and former Nebraska recruit) Brad Davison is the most dynamic as he can drive and shoot. Keeping Happ, Iverson, and backup center Nate Reuvers off the offensive glass will eliminate the 2nd chance points that most teams get against Nebraska. Offensively Nebraska has been a consistently good 3pt shooting team this year and has to be licking its chops upon seeing the numbers that Wisconsin is giving up. While the Badgers tend to run you off the 3pt line, they aren't going to be quick enough to stop the penetration of Nebraska's guard and keep everyone covered up. Expect some zone in this one but it really seems like we can shoot over it. Thomas Allen has only played 10 minutes in the last two games; expect him to play at least that much in this one. The Huskers are home and are very hungry after seeing some of what could have been. I think they eat. Prediction: Nebraska 74 - Wisconsin 64 View full article

    There is not a team left on our home schedule that you look at them and say "it can't be done." The current Kenpom rankings of our remaining home opponents: 33, 36, 42, 78, 84, 86, 99, 117. If we are good enough to make the dance, then we are good enough to win all of those games; if we're not good enough to win all of those games, then we're really not good enough to dance and might as well not talk about it. Is there a chance we stub our toe against one of those teams? Sure. Will we be underdogs in any of those games? Of course. But if you don't think we can win all of those games, you might as well start talking about who the next coach should be. You know what? In addition to thinking we can win all of the above at home, I also think we can avoid losing to any team on the road outside the Kenpom top 50. How bou dat?

    I don't know. Things are working and the team is gelling. Most all players are comfortable with their roles. Even Isiah said he didn't care if he started or not. Now if we were 6-11 and Jordy had cost us a few games then yes, it would be silly to probably start him. However, we are 11-6 and Jordy isn't the reason we have lost the games we did. At this point in the year, if it is nothing major, messing with lineups and rotations could do more harm than good. That's just my 2 cents and philosophy though.

    BIG 10 Satndings.

    Illinois will be a tough game..maybe tougher than it might seem. They're a little like us. They've now won more games than they did all of last year. And they too have a new coach, but she's no rookie...very experienced and has brought Ill. out of the basement quickly.. Before the season started I thought Ill. would have issues., but...their improving with new guidance. It's an away game in their house....we'll need to be ready at the tip off and not (seemly) wait until the last qtr to try to win it. Our youth shows when we don't come out of the chute like a house a fire. As said, we've got to win it because of the schedule coming up right behind it. Watched Iowa play twice.....Gustafson is their key...they go as she goes.....and she's picked it up a bunch this season.. It will be a good example, and experience, for Cain to play against her..

    My hope/expectation is that we should expect to win all the remaining Q3 games, of which all are at home except Rutgers. We gotta sweep Rutgers. They're really our only potential for a bad loss left on our schedule and represent our best chance for a road win. Q1 is going to be tough. Not sure there's a win there. Maybe we surprise an Ohio State who will have just gotten done with Minnesota, have a 1-day prep for us before facing PSU. That might help us, but still ... not a gimme. At all. Q2? I think we should win at least 2 (home) and possibly sneak a third (road at Illinois or maybe at Wisconsin.) I think you're right that 10 more wins should be our goal at this point: 8-9 yet in the regular season and 1-2 in the BTT.

    Yes. But the Michigan I've watched the past couple weeks has started to look like a vintage Beilein team. and NU's never beaten Michigan under Miles. That's gonna be the toughest game left on the schedule, regardless of location, IMO.

    If I get this quadrant thing, a WIN in Q1 does great things for you and a loss doesn't really hurt (except that you might have been better off getting a Q2 win than a Q1 loss, amiright?) Q2 wins help also, but not as much as Q1s (of course) but a Q2 loss probably doesn't really hurt that much either as long as you win more of them than you lose. A Q3 win doesn't help much but a Q3 loss would really leave a mark? And a Q4 win is probably no better than a Q1 loss but a Q4 loss would be devastating. Does that kind of capture the idea behind the quadrants? Or is there a more official explanation for it?

    I remember watching that W. Kentucky game....they should have lost. W. Kentucky ran a trapping 1-3-1 that game them fits. I wonder if we'll throw some at them other than in emergency situations. This feels like a game where we throw McVeigh out there for a few.

    Sure, but if it's going to be *only* 15 remaining games that means 0-1 in the BTT. To get to over .500 in those 15 means we must go 8-6 minimum in the 14 regular season games. KenPom has us at 6-8 or 7-7 at best in those. One should avoid including conference tournament games in one's W-L total when making predictions because winning or losing them affects your total number of games played and makes predictions difficult at best. What @TimSmiles should have said instead is he thinks we need to go 8-6 the rest of the regular season at a minimum for coach to keep his job. (I'm not necessarily agreeing with his assessment on that, BTW)

    Surprised at the line. 1.5 to 2 most places. Vegas still doesn't think much of our team. Huge game tonight. Have to find a way to win this one.

    At this point it's a pretty fair assessment. We need to win some games we're not expected to win in the future.

    The big thing I see in regards to the starting lineup is that Miles talks a lot about the importance of playing from in front, especially on the road. However, our current lineup has opened some games with some large deficits early on, much like Saturday. I would love to see what Roby, Copeland, Gill, Watson, and Palmer could do fresh out of the gate, possibly allowing us to jump all over of teams from the get-go. Having said that, our end-of-game lineup is probably of equal importance.

    Compare that to Gill's... "I'm not into moral victories because those don't get you into the dance." We could have very easily said "well the refs at Purdue... yada yada, but we didn't." Our team is hungry and they want it. I can see it. That's a good thing.

    Yeah, that's probably true too. It's a silly joke to convey to millions of people no matter what. And tagging the NCAA doesn't make it any better. Ufffft.

    My only theory on why Jordy starts is that Miles wants to find out what he has that day as quickly as he can. He'll play him accordingly from there.

    One and done in the NIT is way better than no postseason at all.
