Badger Basketball Stats: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

We take a look at the Badger basketball stats for the season so far. The good, the bad, and the ugly. See where your favorite team stands and how they’re doing compared to the rest of the league.

The Good

The Badger’s have had a great season so far, with a record of 18-2. They have some impressive stats in both offensively and defensively. let’s take a look at some of the good things they have done this season.

One of the best things the Badgers have done is shoot the three-pointer. They currently rank 4th in the nation in three-point percentage, shooting an outstanding 42.5%. That is almost 3% higher than their opponents. They also average 8.8 threes per game, which is good for 19th in the country. When you can shoot like that, it creates problems for the other team because they have to worry about defending the perimeter, which opens up driving lanes and post play opportunities.

Big men Ethan Happ and Jared Berggren have been dominant in the post this season. They are averaging a combined 18 points, 11 rebounds, and 3 blocked shots per game while shooting over 50% from the field. That kind of production is hard to stop and it has helped the Badgers to be one of the top scoring teams in the nation, averaging 76 points per game (26th in NCAA). With shooters like Brust and Dekker spreading the floor, it creates a tough matchup for any team trying to defend Wisconsin.

The Bad

In basketball, like in any sport, there are good teams and bad teams. The same can be said of individual players. Some players are bad because they’re not very good at the sport. Others are bad because they don’t play well with others. And still others are bad because they’re just plain mean.

The Badger basketball team is currently in the midst of a losing season. They have a record of 9-19 and are last in the conference. Individual stats for the team aren’t much better. The leading scorer is only averaging 12 points per game The leading rebounder is only averaging 6 rebounds per game And the team as a whole is shooting less than 40% from the field.

So why are the Badgers so bad? There are a number of reasons. First, they don’t have any star players They don’t have anyone who can take over a game and carry the team to victory. Second, they’re young and inexperienced. Many of the players are in their first or second year on the team and they’re still learning how to play together. Third, they don’t have much depth. They only have seven players who see significant playing time and several of those players re Playing out of position due to injuries or foul trouble. Fourth, their coach is in his first year with the team and he’s still trying to figure out how to use all of the pieces that he has at his disposal.

So what does all this mean for the Badgers? It means that they’re going to continue to struggle until they can figure out how to turn things around. It also means that their fans will need to be patient as well because it’s going to take some time for this team to reach its full potential.

The Ugly

The Badger Basketball team has had a tough season so far. They have lost several Key Players to injuries, and their record is not impressive. However, there are still some bright spots on the team. Let’s take a look at the good, the bad, and the ugly of the Badger’s season so far.

The Good:
-The team is averaging 71 points per game
-They re shooting 45% from the field.
-They are leading the conference in rebounding.

The Bad:
-The team is allowing 74 points per game
-Their opponents are shooting 47% from the field.

The Good: Players

The University of Wisconsin-Madison has a long-standing tradition of excellence in men’s basketball. The Badgers have won 14 Big Ten regular season championships, the second most in the conference, and have appeared in the NCAA tournament 33 times. The team has also sent 19 players to the NBA, including two-time NBA MVP and former Milwaukee Bucks player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

In recent years the Badgers have been led by a core group of talented players including Senior Ethan Happ, who was recently named First Team All-Big Ten for the third consecutive year, as well as Sophomore D’Mitrik Trice and Junior Brevin Pritzl. These three players have helped the Badgers to a 21-10 record this season, good for fourth place in the conference.

The Bad: Schedule
Although the Badgers have had a successful season overall, their Conference Schedule has been difficult, with games against some of the top teams in the country such as Michigan State Purdue, and Iowa. As a result, the team has lost six of its last eight games and will likely need to win its first two games in the Big Ten Tournament to receive an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament

The Ugly: Attendance
Despite having one of the best basketball programs in the country, attendance at home games has been disappointing this season. The Kohl Center which seats over 17,000 people, has averaged just over 12,000 fans per game this season. This is down from last season’s average of over 14,000 fans per game and is one of the lowest averages in recent years

The Bad: Players

In the 2017-2018 season the Badgers had a losing record of 15-18. They also had a losing record in conference play going 10-8. One of the main reasons for their struggles was the lack of production from their players. Below is a list of the Badgers’ leading scorers and how they fared in comparison to the rest of the team.

Led by freshman stud Brad Davison Wisconsin’s starting five averaged a combined 41.4 points per game which was good for second worst in the conference. The starters also shot a combined 39.5% from the field and 29.5% from three-point range which were both worst in the conference. In addition, the starters only averaged 2.8 assists per game which was last in the conference.

Davison was the only player on the team that averaged double figures in points with 10.5 points per game. He was also first on the team in Three-point shooting percentage at 33%, but he only made 1.6 threes per game. Davison was second on the team in assists with 2.7 per game and third in steals with 0.9 per game.

Junior forward Ethan Happ was second on the team in scoring with 9.3 points per game, but he shot a dreadful 49% from the field and 46% from the Free Throw Line Happ did lead the team in rebounding with 6.8 per game and he was second on the team in blocked shots with 1.3 per game, but his inability to score consistently hurt Wisconsin all season long

The rest of Wisconsin’s starting five consisted of sophomore guard D’Mitrik Trice (9 points per game), junior guard Brevin Pritzl (6 points per game), and senior center Andy Van Vliet (6 points per game). Trice and Pritzl were both streaky shooters all season long, while Van Vliet struggled to find any sort of offensive rhythm and wound up averaging just 4 points over Wisconsin’s final 18 games after averaging 11 points over their first 16 games

The Ugly: Players

The Badger basketball team has struggled mightily this season, and a large part of that has been due to the play of their players. Let’s take a look at some of the numbers and see just how bad things have been.

First, let’s look at scoring. The Badgers are averaging just 60 points per game, which is good for last in the conference and second-to-last in the nation. They are shooting a putrid 29% from the field and an even worse 20% from three-point range. And it’s not like they are taking a lot of threes, either; they are averaging just 11 attempts per game, which is also last in the conference and second-to-last in the nation.

What about individual players? Senior guard Bronson Koenig is the team’s leading scorer at 12 points per game, but he is shooting just 31% from the field and 23% from three. Junior forward Nigel Hayes is next at 11 points per game, but he is shooting an abysmal 25% from the field and 21% from three. Freshman center Ethan Happ is averaging 10 points and 7 rebounds per game but he is shooting a mediocre 43% from the field. The rest of the team is averaging less than 10 points per game.

In short, it has been a tough season for Badger Basketball Fans The team has been woefully bad on offense, and there seems to be no end in sight.

The Good: Coaches

The Badger Basketball team has had some great coaches over the years. Some of the most successful include Bo Ryan, who led the team to four Final Fours, and Dick Bennett, who took the team to two Sweet Sixteens. But there have been some less successful coaches as well. Dave Bliss, who coached the team from 1996 to 2001, had a losing record in conference play and was fired after six seasons. Gary Darnell, who coached the team from 2002 to 2005, also had a losing record in conference play and was fired after four seasons.

The Bad: Coaches

In recent years the Badger basketball team has had some success, but there have also been some disappointing seasons. One area that has been a source of frustration for fans is the coaching.

In the past few years, there have been a lot of changes on the Coaching Staff and it seems like each season there is a new coach. This can be disruptive to the team, and it can be hard for the players to adjust to a new coach’s style.

The coaching staff has also been criticized for not being able to develop talent. There have been some Great players who have come through the program, but they have not always reached their potential. This is especially frustrating for fans because it seems like the team could be so much better if the coaches were doing their jobs correctly.

There is no easy solution to this problem, but it is something that needs to be addressed if the Badgers want to be contenders in the future.

The Ugly: Coaches

In basketball, as in any sport, the quality of a team’s coaching can be the difference between winning and losing.

And while it’s easy to point to a team’s record as evidence of a coach’s success or failure, there are other factors to consider. For example, how well do the players on the team respond to the coach’s methods? How successful is the team in terms of player development?

Ultimately, though, it boils down to winning and losing. And on that front, our coaches have not been successful. In fact, they’ve been downright bad.

The Good: Fans

The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s men’s basketball team the Badgers, have had a rough start to their season. As of December 18th, they have a record of 4-8, which puts them at the bottom of the Big Ten Standings However, there is one bright spot in all of this: the fans.

The Badgers have one of the best home-court advantages in all of college basketball Their fans are some of the most passionate and loyal in the country, and they make sure to show it every game. Even though the team has been struggling this season, the fans have still been packing into the Kohl Center to support them. In fact, attendance is up 3% from last season.

The Kohl Center has been sold out for every Home game so far this season, and it doesn’t look like that is going to change anytime soon. The fans are still behind this team, no matter how bad they might be playing.
