Nigel Hayes is returning to Wisconsin. He said in a text: "It was better to work on the skills I would need a year in the NBA a year in advance, rather than three months prior. As a byproduct of that, next year I presume my stock will be higher as well." Hayes' return will likely make the Badgers a top 15 team and a Big Ten title contender after reaching the Sweet 16 under new coach Greg Gard.
