Analyzing the current state of Wisconsin basketball


With Kobe King's departure and Brad Davison's suspension, it has been a difficult week for the Wisconsin Badgers men's basketball program. Jesse Temple of The Athletic joins Mike Heller to take a look at what comes next.

Temple notes that the Davison suspension was only unusual in the sense that the public reprimand involved Big Ten administration.

On the Kobe King front, there's certainly been a lot of chatter about the reasons that led to his decision to depart Wisconsin. Temple says that everyone's had their take on it, but until King or UW release anything new, it's all speculation.

In addition, the entire coaching staff went to La Crosse to check on Johnny and Jordan Davis to make sure they had a chance to talk about the situation.

On the recruiting front, the Badgers have a five-star recruit in Jack Nelson coming to UW, and that's big news for Wisconsin.
