Wisconsin-South Carolina State basketball preview

Wisconsin has finished in the top four of the Big Ten regular season in each of the last 16 seasons. But many pundits believe that streak could come to an end this season. In a preseason vote of 28 media members who cover the conference, the Badgers were picked to finish seventh.

The Badgers’ team dynamic will change in 2017-18 now that Bronson Koenig, Nigel Hayes, Zak Showalter and Vitto Brown are gone. Those four stalwarts combined to play an astounding 547 college games with 349 starts. They accounted for 55.9 percent of the minutes played last season, 59.7 percent of the points, 41.5 percent of the rebounds and 54.6 percent of the assists. Hayes finished third in school history in scoring (1,857 points), and Koenig set the program’s career 3-point record (270).

Wisconsin’s only returning starter is forward Ethan Happ, who averaged 14.0 points and 9.0 rebounds last season and earned first-team All-Big Ten honors. Happ flourished as a redshirt sophomore, but he also had enough talent around him to not feel pressured into being the best player on the floor every game.

D’Mitrik Trice will assume the starting point guard role previously occupied by Koenig. Trice averaged 5.6 points per game last season, while forward Khalil Iverson averaged 3.9 points. No other returning player averaged more than 2.2 points per game. Included in that group are forward Charlie Thomas (2.2 points), Brevin Pritzl (1.9), Andy Van Vliet (1.3) and Alex Illikainen (1.3).

Those four returning players, along with redshirt freshman Aleem Ford, will be vying for playing time. And each of them will have to demonstrate marked improvement to excel through the grind of a Big Ten campaign.

Wisconsin defeated Northern Iowa 69-38 in an exhibition game Wednesday night and showed that it has several offensive weapons available outside of Happ. Freshman guard Kobe King scored a team-high 15 points, Happ added 9 points and Iverson 9 points. Eight different players made at least one 3-pointer for the Badgers, who connected on 10 of 24 long-range tries overall.

King and Davison are freshmen guards who will see plenty of playing time off the bench. Wisconsin’s bigger questions could come in the frontcourt. Van Vliet earned a start against Northern Iowa but scored only 2 points in 15 minutes. Ford showcased a nice outside touch by drilling two 3-pointers. Freshman center Nate Reuvers scored 6 points late in the game, and Thomas finished with 5 points.

During Wisconsin’s 85-56 exhibition victory against UW-Stout on Sunday night, King again led the team in scoring with 17 points. Davison added 13 points, while Iverson and Van Vliet scored 11 points apiece.
