More honors are being placed upon Wisconsin's two strongest returners heading into the 2015-2016 season, as Nigel Hayes and Bronson Koenig were named to the Preseason All Big Ten Team.
It's the second consecutive year two Badgers have been selected, as Sam Dekker and Frank Kaminsky were tabbed last year.
Junior Hayes averaged 12.4 points and 6.2 rebounds per game last season, while fellow junior Koenig averaged 11.5 points and 2.7 assists per game.
The Badgers will head to Chicago on Thursday for Big Ten Media day. They open with an exhibition game against UW-River Falls on November 4 at the Kohl Center. Their official season opener is slated for November 13 against Western Illinois.
