Well, we knew it was going to be a tough opener to the trip.
Carleton is a perennial powerhouse in Canada and the Badgers are still trying to figure this new-look team out. That was evident in the first half, as Carleton jumped out to a 51-36 lead on its way to a 95-82 victory.
Even though the loss is disappointing, the results are not the most important idea on the trip. Bo is able to mix and match with the line-up and see who plays well together. I was not surprised with the starting line-up as it makes sense, but it’s a smaller line-up. One of the big guys off the bench is going to have to come through to beat some of the tougher Big Ten teams.
Overall, a win would have been nice, but it really wasn’t expected, especially since Carleton has already knocked off TCU and Towson by twenty points each this summer.
Now let’s dive into the box score.
