Head Coach: Bo Ryan
Location: Madison, WI
Conference: B1G 10
Last time out: Beat Northwestern
Typical Rotation Depth: 7-8 players
Opening Line: Wisconsin by 10
Fun Fact : Corn is a grain
Fun Fact : Every starter for the Badgers have attempted over 30 3pters this year.
Player to watch: Frank Kaminsky
The 7'0" Senior is a post player possessing guard skills and can shoot from anywhere on the court. The pre-season All-American anchors the Badger offense and defense, leading the team in rebounds and points. Kaminsky came back from a head injury to knock down 4-5 3pters on his way to 22 points in the last game against the Huskers
We like home games and have had fairly good success against Wisconsin at home during our brief B1G career. Before last year's huge win we lost two close games by 5 and 6 points against superior Badger squads. Tonight's Wisconsin team might be Bo Ryan's most potent offensive squad and will undoubtedly test what has been one of the great Husker defensive teams of this century.
The Huskers won last year by shooting over 50% from both 2 and 3 while shooting 25 FTs. They only turned the ball over 5 times. Does this team have that in them? Does this crowd? Will that be enough against a potential Final 4 team?
Prediction: Wisconsin 66 - Nebraska 59 with a 35% chance of Runzas
