Essegian nearly led the Badgers to a huge upset against no. 3 Kansas. If he can continue to build his game, Wisconsin might make some noise in the Big Ten. It isn’t just his scoring. Essegian also grabbed five rebounds in the last game and is perfect from the free-throw line this year. If his playmaking develops, opponents will have to watch out.
Connor Essegian looks to be on board with some type of nickname. It will be interesting to see which one sticks or which one is endorsed by Essegian himself. The season has started out promising for Wisconsin thanks to the play of many young players. The Badgers look to keep the momentum going against USC and then Wake Forest in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
