After all, Minnesota brought a 2-14 Big Ten clip into its home finale Wednesday night vs. rival Wisconsin.

But the Eagan, Minnesota, native has played a big role for his home team in each of the past three seasons, scoring more than 1,100 career points and ranking as the program’s best free-throw shooter (84 percent).

King received one last round of applause during the team’s pregame senior night festivities.

Watch the ceremony in the video above.


The crowd gave King a great ovation as he exited the game, too.
