Basketball: Men's, women's teams hold first practices with season just over month away

Wednesday marked the first day of practice for the University of Wisconsin men’s and women’s basketball teams.

Including four starters, the men return 75% of the minutes played from 2019-20 with the hopes of competing for a national championship as the No.

A strong Big Ten Tournament showing has the team excited to break through the glass ceiling and reach playoff action for the first time under Head Coach Jonathan Tsipis.

This kind of mentality and focus — along with the addition of Stanford grad-transfer Estella Moschkau and five freshmen — will go a long way in determining how Tsipis’ team will fare against a stacked Big Ten in 2020-21.

After winning eight straight to end the 2020 regular season and clinch a share of the regular-season Big Ten title, the team is hungrier than ever to fight for their one shining moment.

Starting guards D’mitrik Trice and Brad Davison are among the returning 11, providing the men’s squad with tournament experience.
