  1. Dukan visited Wisconsin on an unofficial visit in late September.

  2. It would be great to have a deadly sharp shooter who is more 6-7 for the Wisconsin.
    See Polar Bear / Mike W.

  3. Thrilled to have Duje in the fold with the UW team. He is the type of player that Bo Ryan loves on offense. Big man that can spread the floor. Will need to work on his defense and put 5-10 more lbs of muscle on though.
