Some tendencies to watch for:

Last year's Wisconsin squad was an elite defensive unit - defending without fouling, defending the three-point line with dogged man-to-man looks, and blocking shots with big man Jared Berggren.

Frank Kaminsky (a Chicago-area player - do he and Phil Greene IV know each other? I believe I saw them both play at an all-star game, but I could be mistaken) now portals the paint at 6'11". He wasn't a very good defensive rebounder, and that's something Wisconsin will be watching for. He does, however, have ability to shoot out to the three-point line.

On the other side, St. John's dominates paint play on defense. But their zones have left room for three-point shooters.

Wisconsin will start a three-guard lineup with shooters.

Maybe that's why Steve Lavin was working on man defenses during preseason play?

We welcome back Chris Obekpa, and we welcome in a new season. Let's get it.
