MADISON, Wis. (UW BADGERS.COM) -- Redshirt-junior center Evan Anderson announced Thursday that he will not return to the Wisconsin men’s basketball team for his senior season following graduation in the spring of 2014.
“I’m very thankful for the opportunity to play basketball at Wisconsin and thankful for my time here,” Anderson said. “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.”
Anderson’s career will be celebrated during the senior night ceremony following Wisconsin’s regular-season home finale against Purdue on Wednesday, March 5. He will be honored alongside seniors Ben Brust and Zach Bohannon.
In three seasons in Cardinal and White, Anderson has appeared in 35 games, amassing 20 points, 10 rebounds and six assists.
“My ultimate goal was to help this team out in any way that I could,” Anderson added. “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.”
The Stanley, Wis., product is scheduled to graduate from UW in May with a degree in community and environmental sociology with a certificate in criminal justice.
