It may seem like a broken record early on this 2017-18 season, but the Wisconsin Badgers look to get back on track against the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers inside the Kohl Center on Wednesday night.
Wisconsin (4-7, 1-1 Big Ten) pulled with six points in a 46-40 game before ultimately falling apart in an 82-63 loss to Marquette on Saturday afternoon. The Badgers will have to do without the likes of guards D’Mitrik Trice and Kobe King, the latter of whom is out for the year after having surgery on his left knee on Monday.
Western Kentucky (6-3) boasts six players averaging at least 10 points per game, granted their statistics show only eight players who have played. Guard Darius Thompson leads the Hilltoppers in scoring (13.8 points per game) while forward Justin Johnson (11.7 points, 9.6 rebounds per game) averages nearly a double double per contest.
