Dekker deals with nagging injury

Sam Dekker is dealing with a nagging injury as the Badger basketball team heads to Milwaukee Wednesday.

The team faces UW-Milwaukee at 8 p.m.

Dekker injured his ankle and scored just two points against Marquette and five points against Duke last week.

Dekker is practicing and says the ankle is getting better.

“It’s not gonna be an all year thing. I think we’re on the right track right now. Getting back on the court for practice has made me the happiest guy in Madison that you could find right now, so we’ll leave it at that,” said Dekker. “I’m pretty excited with what’s going on right now. I want to be there for my team and give whatever I can give and it’s only getting better right now.  That was a group decision. And we’re just gonna go with it.”

After Wednesday’s game, Wisconsin takes on Nicholls State at the Kohl Center Saturday at 2 p.m.
