Saturday night’s Final Four matchup between Kentucky and Wisconsin could hardly feature two more disparate programs. Bo Ryan’s Badgers have built their reputation on years of great team defense and largely anonymous scorers, while John Calipari’s one-and-done factory in Lexington includes almost nothing but players with imminent NBA ambitions.
To help NBA fans who haven’t seen much of the underexposed Badgers (or the massively hyped Wildcats) this season, we present a look at the two starting lineups through the lens of the pros. Each player is matched with the closest NBA approximation to his own skill set, including SEC Freshman of the Year Julius Randle and two-time All-Star Zach Randolph of the Memphis Grizzlies.
Read on to learn why Z-Bo's the best pro to emulate the Kentucky star, along with NBA doppelgangers for the rest of the starters in the Wildcats-Badgers clash.
