    Game Day Essentials: Game #19 at Wisconsin

      Nebraska Cornhuskers (7-11) vs Wisconsin Badgers (13-4)

       

      Date: Tuesday Jan 21th, 2020
      Time: 8:00 p.m. 

      Arena: Kohl Center (17,287, 18th largest in D-I)

      Broadcast:  BTN

    Wisconsin Info

    ydl01hfj8hw4p1mbg1zd.gif

    Head Coach: Greg Gard
    Location: Madison, WI
    Conference: B1G
    Nickname: Badgers

    Mascot: Bucky Badger
    Line: Wisconsin by 15.5

    Typical Rotation Depth: 9

    KenPom rank: 22

    KenPom home court advantage calculation: Home court advantage: 3.3 (140th in D-I)

    Offensive Style: Slowly shootin' 3s

    Defensive Style: securing offensive rebounds/not fouling

    Key Injuries: None

     

    Players to watch:   Nate Reuvers

    The Junior guard is another in the line of mobile Wisconsin centers who can make 3s. Additionally he's an excellent shot blocker

     

    Players to watch:       Micah Potter

    The Badgers have been integrating Potter into the offense since he became eligible mid-semester and offensively he's been a boost as he takes the load from Reuvers. Typically the two centers don't play together. Like Reuvers, Potter is a capable outside shooter.

     

    Roster points

      PG SG SF PF C Pct
    1
    0 D'Mitrik Trice
    6-0  184  Jr
    23 Kobe King
    6-4  205  So
    34 Brad Davison
    6-4  206  Jr
    2 Aleem Ford
    6-8  217  Jr
    35 Nate Reuvers
    6-11  235  Jr
    17.5
     

     

    The Hoosiers play 10-11 guys so you'll see lot of different lineups tonight

     

    • Trice is the PG but has really struggled from outside in conference. 
    • Charge enthusiast Brad Davison also has struggled from outside. He remains a dead eye FT shooter
    • Kobe King is interesting has the guard almost solely shoots from outside
    • Ford, like most everyone else, hasn't been lighting it up from outside
    • Freshman SG Armaan Franklin started several games to start the season but an inability to shoot has limited his playing time.
    • Sr shooting guard Brevin Pritzl remains an elite 3pt shooter and stout defender
    • 6'7" Freshman Tyler Wahl spells Akeem Ford at the 4 without skipping a beat
    • Jr guard Trevor Anderson is guard depth

     

     

    The Skinny:

    Reuvers and Potter will be the focus of the defense tonight as they are the most aggressive part of the Badgers' swing offense. It seems unlikely that Nebraska has the answer for this offense and even if they do,they have the will to implement it for 25-30 seconds of shot clock.  Wisconsin missing a LOT of threes seems like one of the few chances the Huskers have in this one. Will anything change personnel wise for Nebraska if Potter and Reuvers play at the same time? 

     

    On offense the Huskers will find that Wisconsin is going to run them off the 3pt line towards their shot blockers.  Decision making on those drives will be critical.  Fast break points most likely will be non-existent so the Huskers will need to earn them tonight.

     

    Typically I think the Huskers play harder after a loss but this Wisconsin team seems like a bad matchup.

     

    Prediction: Wisconsin 72 - Nebraska 55

    Haven't watched any Wisconsin games this year.  Have the new flopping rules slowed Brad Davison down at all?  

    Can one of you advanced stats guru's out there post Brad Davison's charge taken averages from 17-18, 18-19, and now 19-20?  Would be interesting to see

    I suspect some cut and paste issues, here. First, the Badgers are 11-7. Second, they are the Badgers, not the Hoosiers, and they will go 9 deep. And Armaan Franklin is not a Badger.

    Kobe King is far from an exclusive outside shooter-he's the slasher-type of player. He is a mid-range shooter, however.

    Appreciate it. I did this late last night and didn't go back over this.

    Matt just likes to hide Easter eggs in his Essentials posts to see if anybody's paying attention.  😉

     

    Dimes is going to add "if anyone is still reading this..." into one of these, isn't he? 🤣

    It's more of a 'cry for help' than 'easter eggs'

    PS, Kobe King (the supposed outside shooter), was the only rotation player for UW not to make a 3...

     

    That was obviously a typo. Why would I go out of my way to mention a guard on Wisconsin who shoots 3s as this describes every other guard who is not King.

    P.S. This was corrected in the original post yesterday after you noted it.
