I was trying to look at some of the "mid tier" teams with 12-13 wins this year, but the research became taxing.  That being said, I didn't find many.  I don't like any excuse, whether its youth, confidence, brain farts, or whatever.  Excuses are opportunities to get better.  However, I do remember someone saying early in the year, maybe the UNC game that the Buckeyes were one of the "youngest teams in the country" this year because we only have 3 "upperclassmen." 

Looking at the stats, this one I found staggering.  Wisconsin had a majority upperclassmen on the floor the other night.  Of our 6 "experienced players" (Andre, Kaleb, CJ, Duane, LM and Kyle), only Andre has more total minutes on the floor in a career than any of those players.  The others aren't even close.  Also, Trice is a RS Junior (4 years in the program), Pritzl is a 5th year senior because of a medical redshirt, Potter is a 4th year Junior with 2 years at UW and Brad Davison and Nate Reuters are juniors who have averaged more minutes per year than anyone on our team.  That is what experience gets you...a tail whipping on the road.  

We have a lot of talent, but experience plays a factor too.

I am not sure if it is a roster issue, or just a slump.  I feel like Duane can score, as can DJ, as can Andre and even CJ as they have all put up big games.  The problem is the inconsistency from game to game.  I think the physicality of the B1G this year, even on Kaleb has everyone off their game.  This is a cause and effect to confidence, which I think is the big killer right now.  We are hesitant on decision making, shot taking and finishing at the hoop.  If we can get our confidence back, I think we have the "ability" on the team to beat anyone in the B1G.  The question is, will we?
