Berggren underrated?

For perhaps the first time this season, Wisconsin forward Jared Berggren received overwhelming coverage across all national college basketball media platforms. Guarded by Michigan's Mitch McGary in the final 30 seconds of so of the game's second half (a contest eventually won by the Badgers in overtime), Berggren surprised the freshman, who no doubt read the scouting report and thought Berggren would either pop from deep in that scenario, or pass to the opposite wing, and then set a down-screen for Traevon Jackson. Berggren, though, exploited a gap at the top of the key, flushing a jam and drawing a foul, a pivotal offensive sequence for Bo Ryan's team. After the game, a question quickly surfaced: has the senior big been undervalued this season?
