Greg Gard and the Wisconsin Men’s Basketball team have the odds stacked against them, if you ask Big Ten media members.
They have picked the Badgers to finish 10th out of the 14 teams in the conference.
If it were to come to pass, it would be the lowest finish for the Badgers since the 1997-98 season when they finished 10th. (This comes with the caveat that the Big Ten had only 11 teams until adding Nebraska in 2011, then expanding to the current 14 in 2015.)
Perhaps, one of the main catalysts for the lack of confidence is the fact that the Badgers lost 5 seniors who accounted for just under 47 points per game.
The young Badger team will begin their season tonight when they host the St. Francis Brooklyn Terriers at the Kohl Center. Coverage on ESPN La Crosse 105.5 will begin right after the Sports Lead at 6pm.
