This comes as no surprise as Dekker was nothing short of outstanding in this year's NCAA tourney, averaging more than 19 points and 5.5 rebounds in helping the Badgers top Kentucky and earn a spot in the national title game.

Dekker started 81 games in his three years at Wisconsin, finishing 15th in school history with 1,363 points. He became just the eighth player in Wisconsin's rich basketball history to total 1,000 points and 500 rebounds in his first three seasons.

Following his announcement that he would enter the NBA Draft, several former Wisconsin athletes took to Twitter to congratulate Dekker on his decision.
