Column: Wisconsin must build its identity around its defense

It was 23 degrees in Madison at tip-off, with the wind-chill pushing that number well into the teens. It’s part of a nation-wide arctic blast, plummeting temperatures around the country.  Somehow, Wisconsin’s (2-1) offense started even colder Wednesday night in its 83-63 win over the McNeese State Cowboys (1-3).

There’s no doubt there is an Ethan Happ-shaped hole in Wisconsin’s rotation heading into this season. The dominant big man averaged a double double last season with 17.3 ppg and 10.2 rpg as Happ was named to the First Team All-Big Ten Team for his third straight season, helping the Badgers return to the NCAA Tournament after the disappointing 2017-18 campaign.
