BREAKING: Wisconsin's Sam Dekker Selected #18 By Houston Rockets

The second Badger is off the board with the Houston Rockets selecting Wisconsin's Sam Dekker.  During his career, Dekker played a total of three seasons in Madison and was named to the All-Big Ten team during the 2014-15 season.  The Badgers made the Final Four in each of Dekker's last two seasons with the team.

The Rockets were one of the top teams in the NBA during the 2014-15 season and made the Western Conference Finals before being eliminated by the eventual champion, Golden State Warriors.  Dekker should fit right in with NBA superstars like James Harden and Dwight Howard.
