On today’s episode of Bucky’s 5th Podcast we first take news of the day and recap the latest in Wisconsin football’s COVID-19 situation. Fun! After that we do our usual Big Ten picks for the week before switching gears into some Wisconsin basketball.

To help celebrate episode No. 200 of B5P we are joined by Ken Pomeroy, creator of college basketball’s KenPom rankings, to get an expert’s opinion on Wisconsin Badgers basketball. In our conversation we touch on his rankings which are now an integral part of college basketball and then dive into Wisconsin’s high ranking as we head into the 2020-2021 season.

Following that we discuss the depth of the Big Ten, and what he expects will shake out as we get closer and closer to the opening tip of the college basketball season. We’ll be back with you next week, hopefully with a return to normalcy!
