Keep an eye on Jared Berggren, who is only shooting 29.5% in Big Ten play, attempting only one free throw in those four games. The Badgers realistically could have the overall edge up front, despite Robbie Hummel's healthy return, because Purdue's bigs are so inexperienced. Wisconsin's backcourt may have it's hands full containing the perimeter quickness of the Boilermakers.
