Top Players

Nate Reuvers

It wouldn’t be a typical Wisconsin team without a strong inside presence and Nate Reuvers filled that role on this year’s badgers. Reuvers led a balanced offensive attack, scoring 13.1 points per game while doing good work on the glass as well. The Badgers got tremendous value from Reuvers on the defensive end as well with the 6-foot-11 forward blocking 1.9 shots per game.

Micah Potter

A former Ohio State product, Micah Potter had to sit out the first ten games of the season before gaining eligibility. Potter energized the Badgers once he started playing, finishing second on the team in scoring and leading Wisconsin in rebounding while also knocking down a ridiculous 45.1 percent of his three-point attempts. The Badgers went 16-5 once Potter was able to play, a sign of how incredibly valuable he will be for the program next season.

Brad Davison

Brad Davison was a solid complementary piece for the Badgers this season. While Wisconsin never asked Davison to carry the load on offense he still managed to be effective by doing the little things like going for rebounds, sharing the ball, and spacing the floor with effective shooting. A true glue guy, Davison was an important part of the Badgers’ most efficient lineups.

D’Mitrik Trice

The younger brother of former Michigan State star Travis Trice, D’Mitrik Trice has continued to develop into a leader for Wisconsin. Trice averaged a shade under 10 points per game while leading the team in assists as he facilitated the Wisconsin offense. The Badgers also benefited from Trice’s sharpshooting as he knocked down 37.6 percent of his attempts from beyond the arc.
