- Point Guard: D’Mitrik Trice
- Shooting Guard: Brad Davison
- Forward: Aleem Ford
- Forward: Micah Potter
- Center: Nate Reuvers
There are some spots on the Wisconsin basketball starting lineup for the 2020-21 season that won’t change. That, of course, starts with the big-man in the middle in senior center Nate Reuvers. He led the Badgers in scoring (13.1) and rebounds (4.5) among qualifying players last season and should be a focal point of the offense.
Meanwhile, senior guards D’Mitrik Trice and Brad Davison have firmly entrenched themselves as the starting backcourt for this team with a blend of experience, talent and grit between them. While there could be some challengers for playing time, Gard is likely to stick with the known commodities, particularly in the case of Davison and the leadership he brings to the team.
Where things get trickier is at the forward spots. Redshirt senior Aleem Ford seems close to a lock to start after the improvements he showed last year. He’s somewhat of an undersized stretch-four, however, which can make him hard to place.
The interesting commodity is Micah Potter. He missed time last season, playing only 21 games and in only 17.5 minutes per game. Yet, the big man was productive in that time with 10.1 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. In the best-case scenario, Gard is confident in giving him more minutes given his previous absences from the floor.
