Wisconsin hosts McNeese State

Wisconsin men's basketball is 1-1 on the season but there has been no doubt about the defensive intensity the Badgers have brought to the floor in either contest. They hope to continue that trend against McNeese State. The Cowboys enter Wednesday's game 1-2 on the year with losses to Western Michigan and Louisiana-Lafayette. The Cowboys can score though. They're averaging over 80 points a game and feature a dynamic back court that is comfortable with the three-point shot. It should be an interesting matchup for a Badgers defense stout in the middle. Nate Reuvers tied a school record with nine blocks last Friday.


Offensively, look for the Badgers to pound the paint again against an undersized McNeese State team. There is a danger in that though. Trading twos for threes can work against a team if the opponent is seeing a particularly good shooting night. That is the recipe for an early March national tournament exit and it applies just as easily in mid-November.
