MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin coach Greg Gard says the Badgers have little margin for error with the players they're missing.
It showed Wednesday as the Badgers beat Chicago State 82-70 in a closer-than-expected contest.
The Cougars (2-14) have now lost 10 straight and nine of their losses on the season have been by an average of 38 points. But Gard said the Badgers (7-7) were too inconsistent defensively, giving Chicago State confidence.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The injury news keeps getting worse for Wisconsin.
The team said Monday that freshman guard Kobe King would miss the rest of the season following left knee surgery.
One of three promising newcomers to the roster this year, King averaged 5.2 points after playing in each of the first 10 games. He is eligible to apply for a medical redshirt.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin guards D'Mitrik Trice and Kobe King are out indefinitely with injuries, depleting the backcourt on a team already struggling to score.
The team announced the injuries before the game Saturday against state rival Marquette.
Trice will have surgery on his right foot Monday and won't begin rehab for at least two weeks after the procedure. The sophomore is averaging 9.4 points and playing a team-high 31.5 minutes a game.
