The answer isn't turning to a couple of walk ons that were added to the roster in order to have more bodies to practice against. Adding Micah Potter will be a big help in a few weeks, but until he is eligible, no one else is seeing minutes. It comes down to offensive philosophy. We all know it, have watched it for years, and know that it is not going to change. To rely on grinding out every offensive possession without any early attack is very difficult today. Basic basketball of outlet, run someone to the corners, someone rim run, and then the big man trail to reverse the ball appears to be a foreign concept to this team.
Think about it - putting names to it - Reuvers outlets to Trice - Davison and King run the wings to the corner - Ford rim run - Reuvers trail and either reverse the ball, shoot or attack from the top of the circle. Go back a few years - Bo did it a lot. What is going on now isn't acceptable. Playing at a snails pace and hoping someone will make a shot late in the clock has led to 92 points the last two games.
Two bad, bad losses. Yes they shot terribly, but that is a product of many of the shots they have to take late in possessions.
Wisconsin's adjusted tempo on KenPom is faster this year than any in the KenPom era (dating to 2002). But, 🤷🏻♂️
