Arkansas State Red Wolves Preview
Arkansas State went 13-20 last season, with a 4-14 record in Sun Belt play. The Red Wolves ended their campaign with a loss to Troy in the quarterfinals of the conference tournament, and they’ll be looking to return to the Dance for the first time in over 20 years.
Arkansas State scored 65.7 points per game, on 43% shooting, while allowing 65.7 ppg during the 2022-23 season. The Red Wolves will benefit from the return of top scorer Caleb Fields (11.4 ppg) and backcourt mate Terrance Ford Jr. (10.8 ppg). Fields, a former Florida State guard, brings a ton of experience to the table that will be needed in this road spot against Wisconsin.

The Badgers will be bringing back their entire starting five, including experienced frontcourt members Tyler Wahl and Steven Crowl.

Corey’s Free Pick
Wisconsin returns a good chunk of last year’s squad, and they have a good shot of opening the year strong here against a small Arkansas State team. The Badgers should be able to play the Wisconsin way, and control the flow of this ball game using their size and experience. Arkansas State may stick around early, but the length of the host will surely give them trouble throughout the course of this game. Let’s back Wisconsin at home for this contest.
