The Wisconsin Badgers need a big win Monday night against Richmond.

The Spiders and Badgers will meet in Brooklyn, and this is a great opportunity to elevate Wisconsin’s profile.

We’re sitting at 4-1, Richmond is undefeated and it’s games like this in the non-conference that build our resume.

There’s no excuse for a loss. The Spiders are very solid, but they’re not Wisconsin. They’re not the Badgers. That much I know for sure. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

That’s why I fully expect my squad to absolutely roll Monday night when we take the court. This is the most offensively diverse team we’ve had in a very long time.

Our ability to open up from deep is truly spectacular. After relying heavily on Ethan Happ for years, we now can spread the floor and shoot it from all over the place.

As I’ve said many times, our offense resembles more of an airstrike on Baghdad than a traditional team. We love the three, and Richmond is going to witness that firsthand.

Tune in Monday night at 7:00 EST on ESPN2 to watch it all unfold. You know I’ll be locked in and watching.
