Freshman Lifts Badgers to Victory

Badger fans may remember a 6’8” Forward named Mike Wilkinson who could hit some 3’s and also seize rebounds out of all the scuffling in the paint. Well 6’10” Forward Jon Leuer reminds me a bit of old Mike. Its a 70-54 win over Michigan to open the Big Ten season.
Leuer lifts Wisconsin past rival Michigan: Freshman Jon Leuer scored a career-high 25 points … shot 8-of-9 from the field and connected on all five of his 3-point attempts in the contest. The 6-10 forward is now 9-of-10 from the arc this season and has not missed a three since November 16.
There is a whole lot of sloppy play after the Badgers run the lead up to 20 points early, so Bo will have plenty of teaching to do next practice. I imagine he might have some Coach thoughts about the undesirability of 17 turnovers.
