Showalter, Smith will redshirt

Published On: Oct 30 2013 07:34:19 PM CDT


Sophomore guard Zak Showalter and junior guard Jordan Smith announced on Wednesday their intentions to redshirt the 2013-14 season for the Wisconsin men’s basketball team.

One of nine guards on the Badgers’ roster, Showalter appeared in 22 games during his freshman campaign.

The Germantown, Wis., native compiled 37 points and added 23 rebounds.

“When I looked at the guard numbers this year, it just makes sense to save this year of eligibility,” Showalter said.  

Smith, a native of Orono, Minn., has appeared in 17 career games for the Cardinal and White. He will continue to practice  this season and will play as a redshirt junior for the Badgers in 2014-15.
