The Wisconsin Badgers bounced back from their loss to Arizona with a 75-60 win over Jacksonville State this past week, improving to 8-3 on the season.

It was a tough day behind the arc for the Badgers, as they shot just 5/16 (31.3 percent) from three, but Wisconsin was able to be efficient nonetheless, scoring around 1.2 points per possession, while shooting 54 percent inside the arc on the day.

In the win, the Badgers relied on their forwards, as Steven Crowl scored 19 points on 7/11 shooting, while Tyler Wahl poured in 16 on 7/12 shooting.

Guard/forward A.J. Storr had an efficient night as well, scoring 13 points on 4/6 shooting inside the arc, although he missed both of his three-point attempts.

Following the win, the trio of forwards broke down the win, breaking down the team’s improvements in the finishing category, which was apparent on Thursday.

Next up, the Badgers will face off against Chicago State in their last non-conference game of the season.
