There's been lots of good news for Badger fans lately, culminating in the announcement that UW will get a home game against Duke in the Big Ten/ACC challenge next year. Incoming Freshman Ethan Happ won the MVP of his summer international tournament, although the competition wasn't as high as some of the more high profile international tourneys. Still, better that he won the MVP than was just another guy on the bench. Kaminsky and Dekker both decided to come back to the Badgers while other teams have lost players to the NBA and transfers. Neither guy looked like a likely first round pick so it's probably for the best they came back. Both guys should have professional careers beyond UW. Maybe they don't ever make it to the NBA, but they should get a crack at the D league and certainly can have a career overseas if they want to. It certainly seems possible they could become rotational NBA guys, especially Dekker.
Here are my quick next year predictions to rival the T-rank. I put no value in these since it's just too early, unless of course I am right, then I will gloat and compare the T-rank predictions to that of a monkey.
I have done no research on Maryland or Rutgers, so I'll omit them until fall when I update this.
Bo Ryan has brought me so much joy that I am instituting a new blog rule. All badger basketball related posts will now have to be ended with:
