Instant Analysis: What To Do About The Badger Home Loss By Providence

Junior striker Tyler Wahl, with a total of seven points in his first two games, added a record 16 for the UW.

But these two did not receive much help and the Badgers finished with 32.8% of the game and left 5 of 27 with a three-point range. Davison and Wahl combined 14 of 29 from the field. All Others: A total of 6 out of 32, including 1 in 10 from sophomore center Stephen Crawl.

Unsurprisingly, there have been highly productive droughts without Davis.

The Badgers conceded six consecutive shots after Val scored in paint on their first possession. They conceded 10 of their last 11 shots from the field in the first half after Davison built an 18-12 lead after Davison’s three-point lead 9:11 before halftime.

Providence beat UW 22-5 by the end of the half.

A big problem

Defending the post was one of the biggest questions I had with this team entering the season, and it was a major issue against Providence and his 6-10 senior center Nate Watson.

Failure to comply with the rules of the game, of course, did not help. Crowl served the last 9:51 of the first half after receiving a second foul. Reserve Chris Vogt won his second with 8:37 to finish and third in just 41 seconds, sending him to the bench for the rest of the half.
