UW Badgers Youthful Basketball Team is Growing


UW Men’s Basketball team is very young. They currently only have two starting seniors and 4 seniors overall. Coach Bo Ryan says that his team is persevering.
The team is currently riding a four game win-streak that was preceded by a six game skid. The Badgers are hoping to improve upon their 16-9 (7-6 Big Ten) record with their Thursday game against Indiana (6-18; 1-11) in Bloomington.
Bo Ryan said this about his team, “They keep working, don’t put their heads down, they just come to practice every day. If they struggle in an area, they’re still trying to contribute in other areas.”
A standout player on this young team is sophomore forward Jon Leuer. Leuer started in all of the last four games the badgers own and has scored an average of nine points per game.
