The Wisconsin Badgers men’s basketball team will have a complete makeover in the upcoming 2021-2022 season, as another senior has chosen to move on from the university.
On Thursday evening, Trevor Anderson was the most recent senior to make that decision, opting to forego another year in Madison for a chance for greater playing time elsewhere via the transfer portal.
Anderson was an integral part of the rotation the past two seasons as the backup point guard. The reserve guard was seventh on the team in minutes last year while averaging 3.1 points and 1.4 rebounds on a per game basis. He also shot over 56% from three and poured in 11 points against Louisville.
The slashing point guard is no stranger to the transfer portal. After a prolific high school career inside the state, Anderson wound up playing at UW-Green Bay for a season, and proceeded to transfer to Wisconsin and walk-on with the Badgers.
Where Anderson lands will be fascinating to watch, as he has one year remaining due to the one-time NCAA COVID-19 waiver. All-in all he is the sixth senior that has made the decision to either move on to professional life or the transfer portal, and he could very well be a player that stays in state to play for a third team.
Earlier this week Aleem Ford, D’Mitrik Trice, Micah Potter and Nate Reuvers all announced their intentions to move on from the university. All four are likely to pursue a career professionally in the United States or overseas.
Walk-on senior guard Walt McGrory also announced his decision to enter the transfer portal this week. The last remaining player to monitor is Brad Davison, who has yet to publicly share his plans.
Best of luck to Anderson as he seeks a new home for another season, I know Wisconsin fans will be cheering for him.
