The Badgers are armed with one of the stingiest defense in the nation. They are seventh in Division I ball with only 61.1 points allowed per game, which is mainly a product of a deliberate tactic to slow the game down in order to limit their opponents’ possessions. Per KenPom.com, the Badgers are 333rd overall in adjusted tempo. While Wisconsin doesn’t have a single imposing rim protector, the Badgers are merciless against their opponents’ two-point jumpers, which they hold down to only 32.8 shooting percentage.
The Badgers can’t shoot free throws. The team shoots just 64.3% from the foul line, 336th in the nation. Apart from their performance from the charity stripe, the Badgers are also not known for their efficient outside sniping, as they are 148th in three-point percentage (35.5) and 143rd in threes per game (7.6).
