Once again, Bo Ryan has his Wisconsin Badgers ranked in the Top-10 in the country and they’ll put that ranking on the line on Tuesday when they take on the St. Louis Billikens in Cancun as part of the Cancun Challenge.
The Badgers are off to a great start and are on the verge of the best beginning to a season in 20 years. Their offense has been a big part of that as the Badgers have averaged just a little over 80 points per game en route to the 6-0 start, which is a little uncharacteristic of a Bo Ryan team, which is usually based around defense.
But, as good as the first six wins were, Ryan knows that this St. Louis team may present their toughest test yet.
“Well whether happy or not, the team’s going down the same way: bussing to Chicago and flying directly,” Ryan said of the trip to Mexico. “Those were the six on the schedule. Three in a short burst here at the end. Record says what it is. We know Saint Louis is better.”
St. Louis also comes in unbeaten at 5-0 on the season. They sport a tough defense that will indeed provide the biggest issue so far for this surging Wisconsin offense.
