Wisconsin-Nebraska basketball preview
Wisconsin is coming off a 64-60 loss at Rutgers in which the Badgers had the score tied with 2:03 remaining after Brad Davison’s 3-pointer. But the Scarlet Knights outscored the Badgers 11-7 down the stretch to earn the victory.
Davison and Brevin Pritzl led Wisconsin with 13 points each. Nate Reuvers, making his second career start, tallied 10 points, 4 rebounds and 3 blocks. Ethan Happ added 10 points and 10 rebounds but committed 7 turnovers.
Wisconsin in the midst of a stretch in which it must play five of six conference games on the road, which doesn’t do any favors for a young and experienced Badgers team. Wisconsin is ranked No. 77 in the KenPom ratings and likely will miss the NCAA Tournament after reaching the postseason event in each of the past 19 seasons.
Happ has been as good as advertised during his junior season after earning All-America honors as a sophomore. He is the only major conference player averaging at least 16 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists per game. Davison has emerged this season as a nice complement for Happ. Davison is averaging 11.9 points per game. Over the past 20 years, Devin Harris, Alando Tucker and Happ are the only Badgers to average double figures in points during their freshman seasons.
Davison has been forced to carry a bigger load this season in the wake of injuries to guards Kobe King and D’Mitrik Trice. King is out for the season, while Trice’s return could come in the next couple of weeks.
Of Wisconsin’s 9 losses this season, 5 have occurred after the Badgers were within minutes of winning. Five times, Wisconsin has been tied or within 2 points with 2 minutes remaining.
Wisconsin is 9-8 this season and 2-2 in the Big Ten but has plenty of time to finish with a winning conference record. The Badgers have done so in each of the past 17 seasons, which is the longest run of success of any team in the 110-year history of Big Ten basketball.
Nebraska lost 74-62 at Purdue on Saturday to drop to 11-6 overall, 2-2 in the Big Ten. Three players are scoring in double figures for the Cornhuskers: James Palmer Jr. (15.6), Isaac Copeland (12.4) and Glynn Watson Jr. (12.1).
