While most people are looking at several of the younger faces to step up and determine Wisconsin's level of success this year, the Badgers are going only as far as their senior backcourt takes them.
Fox Sports' Jeff Goodman posted his list of the country's top 20 backcourts in 2009-10, but UW's Trevon Hughes and Jason Bohannon missed the cut. Perhaps it was simply the relatively unknown depth behind the starters that allowed schools like Seton Hall and Xavier to make the list instead. When I asked Goodman where he thought the Badger duo would place in the rankings, he tweeted back:
"Wisconsin's guards were in the next five - somewhere in the 20-25 range. Very underrated."
