In what should be a fun display of his athleticism during Final Four week, Wisconsin senior forward Khalil Iverson will participate in the 2019 College Slam Dunk Championship.
The event will take place inside the Target Center on Thursday night. Fans can watch at 8 p.m. CT on ESPN.
Iverson averaged 6.9 points and 4.5 rebounds per contest for Wisconsin during his final season in Madison, but he played his best basketball in his final games. In his last nine games, he scored in double-figures in seven of those contests while asserting himself as an inside presence to complement consensus second-team All-American Ethan Happ.
