Mike McGinnis/Getty ImagesBo Ryan's Wisconsin Badgers are among the most efficient offensive teams in the nation.The Wisconsin Badgers are undefeated as they head to Bloomington, Ind., to play a young, athletic and talented Indiana Hoosiers team Tuesday (7 p.m. ET, ESPN). It's still the sound, fundamental basketball and structure Bo Ryan demands, but the Badgers can score, as evidenced by the 76.4 points per game they put up even without pushing too much pace.
Ryan knows basketball, and he knows how to prepare, how to get his players to compete, how to develop his players and how to win the right way. His system works all game long and all season long -- but it works even better when he has the right personnel. He does this year.
Let’s take a look at what is driving the Badgers’ success this season, both in terms of the X’s and O’s behind the swing offense and the players who are doing such a good job of executing it this season.
