With the Wisconsin Badgers men basketball primed to tip-off in their first regular-season game of the 2021-2022 season on Tuesday night, it is time to take a look at what players might be contributing this year for the team. Over the weekend, we at B5Q broke down the guards that figure to have a role in the rotation, and today we take a look at the big men. Seven players from the Badgers 2020-2021 team moved on to either play professionally or play elsewhere via the transfer portal after the team finished with an 18-13 record (10-10 Big Ten). This massive amount of turnover opens up opportunities for many young players to see the court this season. Let start with who is expected to start Danny Vanden Boom Jersey. Junior Tyler Wahl has taken a leadership role this season and is once again penciled in as a starter.Photo by John Fisher/Getty ImagesTyler Wahl is one of the few primary contributors that return from last year team. The 6-foot-9 forward is very versatile and is a great defender and all-around hustle player. He has the ability to guard nearly anyone in the lineup and has steadily improved on the offensive end. He is not known for his shooting prowess, but he brings an energy that can be infectious. Last season he averaged 5.2 points, 4.3 rebounds, and one steal per game. According to head coach Greg Gard, Wahl has taken it upon himself to be more of a leader this off-season https://www.wboutletstore.com/Jack_Pugh_Jersey-107, and he is the type of gritty playmaker that good Wisconsin teams generally have. If he can improve his scoring numbers and free throw shooting this year, he could be an x-factor for this young team. The other big man projected to start on Tuesday is sophomore Steven Crowl. The 7-footer out of Minnesota played sparingly last season but did earn minutes in the NCAA Tournament against North Carolina Ross Gengler Jersey. In that contest, Crowl held his own, and he is a player that the coaching staff and team consistently talked about as a player to watch.Crowl has a prototypical build for a Wisconsin big man, and he has the ability to hit shots outside and maneuver in the paint. He is still getting stronger, and will likely struggle at times with some of the experienced post players in the conference, but he is talented.In This Stream Wisconsin men basketball 2021-2022 season preview hub B5Q Roundtable: Wisconsin men basketball season preview Wisconsin men basketball preview: forwards/center Wisconsin men basketball preview: guards View all 30 stories More FromBucky's 5th Quarter Badgers in the NFL: Jonathan Taylor and T.J.
