On Saturday, the Wisconsin men’s basketball team departed for their 12-day, five-game tour of Australia and New Zealand. Before the team boarded their flight, Coach Greg Gard had a trick up his sleeve to surprise redshirt senior Aaron Moesch with a scholarship for the upcoming season. Watch below.
The 6’8″ Green Bay native has played in 48 games for the Badgers, averaging 2.4 points. Moesch was awarded 2016-17 NABC Honors Court and is a 2x Academic All-Big Ten honoree (2015, ’16.) Moesch is also a student in UW’s School of Business.
The Badgers will take on the New Zealand Breakers on August 15 at 8 P.M. New Zealand local time, where they will play against UW alumnus Kirk Penney.
