The Wisconsin Badgers look to bounce back after two rough losses in the 2017 Hall of Fame Classic earlier this week, as they face a familiar in-state foe in the Milwaukee Panthers on Friday night.
Wisconsin (2-3) lost games to No. 22 Baylor and No. 23 UCLA by a combined seven points. Though on a three-game losing streak to teams ranked in the AP Top 25 poll, Wisconsin actually is ranked No. 33 in the KenPom ratings system (No. 24 defense, No. 49 offense).
Forward Ethan Happ continues to showcase his skills against the competition, while true freshman guard Brad Davison started his first collegiate game against UCLA on Tuesday night, scoring 14 points.
Milwaukee (4-1) is under its first year with new head coach Pat Baldwin, with three players currently averaging double-digits in points to start the season. Redshirt junior guard Brock Stull leads the team in points per game (14.0), while sophomore forward Bryce Nze has tallied 12.2 points and eight rebounds per game.
