Didn't see a thread dedicated to tomorrow's game yet...While my rooting interests will be slightly torn, I"m thrilled to finally see my alma maters match-up in...anything!
Obviously should be an interesting contrast in styles - the key from Gators perspective will be how do they handle the disciplined, methodical approach that is a given from a Bo Ryan team. A lot teams - even extremely talented ones - get frustrated/rattled and play right into the Badgers' hands...
As far as the UW line-up, they're in a bit similar boat in that starting PG (Josh Gasser) is out, lost for the season with ACL.
Brust is the most experienced perimeter scorer - while he typically doesn't create much for himself, he is active and can get very hot from the outside. Him versus KB will probably be the key guard battle to watch.
Marshall is new starting G replacing Jordan Taylor - obviously haven't seen much of him yet, but high expectations for him longer-term.
Badgers strength really comes from the bigs -
Ryan Evans is a good athlete and versatile scorer. I'd expect he'll matchup with WY?
Berggren is a big who is very comfortable stepping outside, and is far more athletic than perhaps you'd expect just looking at him. I assume he'll guard PY inside on defense.
Bruesewitz is sort of a scrappy, hustle-type player who does a bit of everything. He's still working his way back from injury, so expect Kamisky to also play quite a bit. He's similar to Berggren in style, but not as developed yet.
Their wild card is true freshman Sam Dekker, one of the biggest recruits in UW history and expected to be one of the top frosh in the Big10 this year. Expectations are sky-high for him, but not sure how big of an impact he'll make right out of the starting gates.
