The Badgers surprised forward Aaron Moesch with a scholarship.

Wisconsin basketball recently left to head down under for their exhibition tour, with their first game set for the 15th against the New Zealand Breakers.

In a video released by Wisconsin, as the team prepared to leave for the trip they were jokingly working on their Australian accents. In order to improve on this, they were given lines to read to help with the language.

When they got to walk-on Aaron Moesch, the third line he was given to read jokingly mentioned for his ‘mum’ not to worry because he’s on scholarship. It took a second but Moesch finally realized what he read and what it meant.

Moesch is a senior that is also a two-time academic all-conference honoree and has played in 48 career games in his time with the Badgers. The business finance major will now be on scholarship for his final season with Wisconsin, with Greg Gard rewarding the senior for his hard work throughout his collegiate career.
