Michigan’s Hunter Dickinson Calls Wisconsin Basketball ‘Scumbags’



Wisconsin Badgers Basketball

Michigan center Hunter Dickinson sends shots at Wisconsin Basketball

Earlier this week, Michigan center Hunter Dickinson took a shot at the Wisconsin basketball team.

In an episode of the RoundBall Podcast, Dickinson said the Badgers are “scumbags.”

Here is the full quote from the Michigan center.

“Wisconsin, I mean they’re just… they’re just… they’re scumbags, it’s what it is,” said Dickinson about his perception of Wisconsin. “I’m sorry, they’re just scumbags. Like, nothing I can say about Wisconsin is going to fire up the matchup even more, so it’s like, it already is what it is; they’re scumbags.”

“The feeling could not be any more mutual. It’s not like it’s a one-sided beef like Maryland where I’m mad at Mark Turgeon for not recruiting me,” explained Dickinson. “Maryland, the players have no real reason to be mad at me. Yeah, this one is very mutual.”

The irony in Hunter Dickinson’s statements

The ridiculous remarks from Dickinson sent shockwaves throughout the Badgers faithful, as fans pointed out the hypocrisy of calling Wisconsin “scumbags.”

In 2022, Wisconsin basketball took down the Wolverines 77-63. Following the game, tempers flared as head coach Juwan Howard slapped Wisconsin assistant Joe Krabbenhoft. The scuffle resulted in Howard being fined and suspended. Who was involved in that scuffle? None other than Hunter Dickinson. I don’t know; that seems like a “scumbag” thing to do.

To be fair to Dickinson, college basketball is all about good rivalries, and he is stoking the fire for the rivalry. However, the irony of it all makes his statements laughable.

The Wisconsin Badgers will have to wait until February 14th to face Michigan. We will see if Dickinson keeps the same energy in what should be an exciting matchup.
