Wisconsin Basketball Starter Enters Transfer Portal

Wisconsin Women’s Basketball freshman Maty Wilke who entered the NCAA Transfer Portal

Wisconsin women’s basketball is losing one of its key players to the transfer portal. Wisconsin finished its season with a loss to Purdue in the second round of the Big Ten Tournament. The Badgers (11-20) finished 10th in the Big Ten. Head coach Marisa Moseley, who just finished her second season in Madison, led the Badgers to their best season in conference play since 2011. The longtime UConn assistant, however, will have to replace one of her burgeoning stars on the roster.

Wisconsin Women’s Basketball Freshman Maty Wilke Enters Transfer Portal

Maty Wilke, a freshman, has entered the transfer portal, according to a report from WKOW’s Karley Marotta, later confirmed by Wilke. The Beaver Dam native earned a starting role and was a key contributor for the Badgers this season. As the Badgers’ third-leading scorer this season, she averaged 11.8 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.2 assists, and a team-leading 1.9 steals per game.

A three-point shooting phenom, Wilke set records from beyond the arc this season. The two-time WIAA state champion’s 61 three-pointers are the most in a season for any first-year Badger.

Wilke, along with fellow freshman standout Serah Williams, appeared to be on track to be a centerpiece of Moseley’s attempt to turn around the Wisconsin women’s basketball program. The Badgers have not enjoyed a winning season since 2010-2011 and have not appeared in the NCAA Tournament since 2010. Now, it appears UW fans will be left only with “what ifs” regarding the potential one-two punch of the Wilke-Williams combo at guard and forward.
