11.0 points, 6.9 rebounds, 2.1 blocks, 28.5 minutes
Berggren's NBA stock may not match Zeller, Mbakwe, or Hammons', but this fifth-year senior had quite a finale in Madison. After losing Jordan Taylor to graduation and Josh Gasser to injury, Berggren assumed the team's "star" role as he was selected to Second Team All-Big Ten as well as the All-Defensive Team.
Berggren's three-point shooting percentage dropped 12 points between his last two years, though he averaged two more rebounds. Berggren is often described as deceivingly athletic, though after watching him hammer down dunks and rise up to blocks shots every game, the deceiving part should have been dropped.
Berggren's selection atop the list of starting centers in the Big Ten may come as a surprise to many, though if you watch Berggren match up next to Cody Zeller in the team's two matchups this year you would understand.
The Badgers defeated Indiana in both matchups, and have in each of the team's past 12 showdowns. In the two battles this year, Zeller outplayed Berggren statistically, but Berggren gets the edge because of his physical play that frustrated Zeller, who at times played "soft." Maybe it's me being anti-Hoosier and pro-Berggren, but his value to Wisconsin earns him the team spot here.
