If the Sioux can find a way to rebound against the much bigger badgers they can keep this game close. Go Sioux

We couldn't rebound against something called Waldorf College so don't get your hopes up.

If we would win this game we need the D to step up big time, Mitchell and Huff to absolutely go off, and then some luck.

Regardless of the odds, Go SIOUX! This will be an interesting benchmark to see where we are compared to last year's abortion.

The Badgers beat La Crosse by 35, Mankato by 34, Prairie View by 44, Sioux by 32. Looks like we have aways to go.

Our 3 Freshman look great! But Yes work to do for sure.

1. Huff is great. Long athletic and can SCORE! Needs some work on D but should be starting over Spencer Goodman no doubt.

2. We have no post presence. Bunch of stiff-steve's that barely see the floor. We will get outrebounded every game starting 5 G/F. Jones needs to figure this out.

3. Sac St. game will be a real benchmark to see what we can expect from this team going forward.
