Wisconsin C Evan Anderson not returning for senior season

Mary Langenfeld-USA TODAY Sports

The redshirt junior will join be honored on Senior Night following the Purdue game March 5, the team announced Thursday morning.

In three seasons at Wisconsin, Anderson appeared in 35 games, scoring 20 points with 10 rebounds and six assists. The 6'10, 245-pound Stanley, Wis., native was often unable to crack UW's frontcourt rotation, though he was always a well regarded teammate -- the Badgers' pre-game dance circles won't be the same without him.

"I'm very thankful for the opportunity to play basketball at Wisconsin and thankful for my time here," Anderson said in a statement released by the team. "I thank all of my teammates and all of the fans for their support. This experience made me into the man that I am today.

"My ultimate goal was to help this team out in any way that I could. No matter how small or how big of a role that would have been. I really feel like I fulfilled that part. I'm glad I was able to come here. It's really a special place to be."

Anderson is scheduled to graduate from UW in May with a degree in community and environmental sociology with a certificate in criminal justice. Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan has yet to comment on the Badgers' new scholarship opening.
