It’s going to be tough to forget this group of seniors.
Nigel Hayes, Bronson Koenig, Zak Showalter and Vitto Brown have been part of two Final Fours, a coaching change and a whole lot of wins for Wisconsin basketball. UW honored the decorated class in a ceremony before their final game at the Kohl Center: a showdown with Minnesota that carries significant emotional and seeding stakes.

Just how good was this class? Per UW, their 110 wins as a class is the third-most in Wisconsin basketball history. Add in Final Fours in the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons and the willingness from Hayes and Koenig to speak out on social issues, and you have a pretty special class.

The four seniors went on to score 46 of Wisconsin’s 66 points on the way to a key win, leaving the Kohl Center in style.
