Wisconsin basketball season is just around the corner as the Badgers prepare to begin their year with an exhibition matchup against UW-Whitewater on Friday, October 29 at the Kohl Center.

After last year saw Wisconsin return a nearly identical rotation of players, the Badgers will be a nearly completely new-look bunch in 2021-22. New doesn’t necessarily mean young, as Wisconsin also brings in transfers with collegiate experience.

Alongside the veterans are a group of youngsters that should have Badger fans excited for the future even if this year may come with growing pains. Wisconsin will have eight newcomers on the roster, and expect a number of them to play a significant role in Big Ten play.

Here is a look at the final 2021-22 Wisconsin basketball roster as we close in on the start of college basketball season:
