Showalter (No. 3), who will be walking on at Wisconsin next fall, had 30 points in a win over J.P. Tokoto this weekend.
Undefeated Germantown rolled passed Menomonee Falls 84 - 47 in this regional final matchup. Senior guard Zak Showalter (#3) was Germantown's leading scorer with 30 points.
Good Lord! If my eyes don't deceive me, Showalter crossed out Tokoto, NASTY style.
Showalter has amazing leaping ability for someone who's about 6' tall. I haven't seen many guys his height throw down a put back dunk like that.
The left scoop shot between two defenders was also very impressive.
Wow, if those highlights are any indication of how Tokoto plays defense...then it's no wonder why he picked UNC, seems like he has no interest in playing D unless he's close enough to get a block.
Badger fans get upset when people ignore pace and assume that UW is bad on offense, but then routinely turn around and do the same thing regarding UNC's defense. Their AdjD ranking according to KenPom:

I wonder if he has another growth spurt. HIs Dad is about 6'4" or so. Steve was one of my coaches in HS. He was a first year assistant back then. Just finished playing for Bo and was a rookie cop. He was a great player himself but was more of a bruiser type post player. He was not nearly the athlete Zak appears to be.
Still can't believe he's walking on.
I don't like to rip on JP because I know that if he had decided to attend UW i'd be thrilled with the prospect of having both him and Dekker on the roster. With that being said I don't really get how a HS team with him on it can be that mediocre. I realize that Germantown has been the strongest team in the state this year, but it's still surprising to me that Men. Falls can be that bad.
But I agree with BadgerInPA in that Showalter is a FANTASTIC add as a walk-on. Can't help but be excited for the next 3-5 years with all of the talent we have landed recruiting wise recently
With the recruit's we have coming in, offense should no longer be a concern. Can't wait to see what Bo will do with these 5* and 4* recruits.
We have some good guys coming in, but we could still use some help offensively. I wouldn't say we are out of the weeds yet.

I would love an super athletic wing like Jeter.
Seems semi realistic as well haha.
Science H. Logic
Can you imagine the length and athletic ability with Jeter, Dekker and Uthoff on the floor at the same time?
Plus, all three can shoot...
Personally a Marshall/Koenig/Dekker/Jeter/Washington lineup would be something I would love to see.
That would probably be the most talented lineup in UW history right there.
No way- give me 2002-2003 lineup anytime please. Just add some depth- that and size were that team's only problems, but as far as talent that team had a lot:
Well, that's a bit of a bad comparison. That 6 had 2 freshmen, 2 sophomores, a junior, and a senior. The next year, Wade, Harris, and Penney's last, Tucker was injured and Owens was gone. The 5 mentioned above + Uthoff could be 4 seniors and 2 juniors.
Who knows how those 5 or 6 will work out. I used to dream of 2 years of Harris, Wilkinson, Butch, and Stiemsma and we saw how that worked out. But it's not at all inconceivable that the newer 6-some would be significantly better as seniors and juniors than the older 6-some was spread across 4 classes.
