The regular season has ended and the Big Ten Tournament is getting underway on Wednesday night in Chicago. That means it is time for the announcement of the 2023 Big Ten Men's Basketball Postseason Honors. When the Big Ten announced the honors on Tuesday, two Wisconsin Badgers were included.
Connor Essegian was named to the Big Ten All-Freshman Team. He joins names like Sam Dekker, Alando Tucker, Chucky Hepburn, and Ethan Happ as Badgers to earn the honor. He is the eighth Badger to be named to the list.
Chucky Hepburn was honored for the second straight year. As mentioned, he was named to the All-Freshman Team last season. In 2023, he was named to the Honorable Mention list.
The Badgers play Ohio State at 5:30pm on Wednesday night in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament. Pregame coverage begins at 4:30pm on the Badgers Sports Network.
