>The first big game of this campaign for Tennessee basketball. Number 10. Wisconsin hosts Tennessee within the Kohl Center in Madison, Wisconsin on Friday.
>Although Wisconsin appears to be a major wild card this year, a victory here would significantly expand the pool of collegiate basketball leagues. In the opening game of the series, Wisconsin played Arkansas State, and they won with 105 points. It will be necessary to improve Wisconsin’s defense for this match because it wasn’t very strong, particularly in the first half. Wisconsin’s shooting percentages were 50% from behind the 3-point line and 65% from the field. In the opening contest, Chucky Hepburn led Wisconsin with 20 points, 6 assists, and a single rebound. Wisconsin’s 20-15 (9-11 CONF) record was unremarkable in its ninth year of play under head coach Greg Gard. His squad qualified for the NIT as among the initial groups eliminated from the Big Dance. After defeating Bradley (81-62), Liberty (75-71), and Oregon (61-58) in the semifinals, the Badgers advanced to the next round.
>This Tennessee squad is having a strong early season and feels it is capable of winning a national championship. Tennessee defeated Tennessee Tech in their season opener, scoring 80 points along the way. The defense only allowed 12 points in the first half, so they will need to play even better on defense in this match. Tennessee made 40% of its shots from beyond the three-point arc and 46% from the field. Leading scorer Dalton Knecht finished with 17 points and 3 rebounds. Three players had at least eleven points in the final standings. For his 9th campaign leading the Tennessee Volunteers men’s basketball program, Rick Barnes is back. His team just wrapped up a fantastic season in which they went 25-11 (11-7 CONF). The Vols were awarded an at-large bid into the NCAA Tournament. They advanced to the Sweet 16 but lost to Cinderella team Florida Atlantic (62–55) after winning a pair of matches.
