The Badgers will also be losing junior Sam Dekker to the NBA Draft, after he experienced a breakout in the tournament with 19.1 points while shooting 41.6 percent at the three-point line.
Dekker frequently came through in the clutch for Wisconsin throughout the tournament, and he averaged 13.9 points and 5.5 rebounds throughout the 2014-15 season.
His best performance came against Arizona in the Elite Eight as he scored 27 points, and he also played a key role in Wisconsin’s upset win over Kentucky in the Final Four while scoring 23 points with 10 rebounds against North Carolina.
His performance in the national championship was not as good, which contributed to Duke winning. Nonetheless, Dekker was still able to score 12 points and grab eight rebounds.
NBA executives currently have Dekker being selected as a lottery pick even though he was a top-25 prospect before the tournament.
