The Wisconsin Badgers men’s basketball team opens their season in 24 days and on Friday afternoon their practice was open to local media types and, boy howdy, were there Tweets! Here are some updates on Micah Potter’s...whole situation, Kobe King’s confidence and a really sweet poster that Nate Reuvers is now on!

  • First things is that poster.

Samad Qawi is the newest walk-on for the Badgers who also happens to have the best nickname we’ve heard since Professor Smackdaddy.

Oh yeah, he’s also pre-med.

  • A couple of injury updates.

Potrykus is so right about Kobe King. The Badgers are probably a fringe NCAA Tournament with him playing like he did last year. If he takes the next step, they are a top-four in the B1G level team.

  • The NCAA: always and forever the worst.

The Badgers will be woefully thin in the front court until Potter returns, but hopefully he’ll come out with a big chip on his shoulder once he’s eligible.

  • Someone who can maybe take some of Potter’s minutes? True freshman Tyler Wahl.
  • A good story on Alando Tucker’s difficult decision to take the interim assistant coach job in place of Howard Moore.

We are hoping to have a reporter at the Red/White Scrimmage on Sunday to give y’all more info on how the team looks in a more competitive setting.
