Badgers' Pritzl given medical hardship

Wisconsin men’s basketball student-athlete Brevin Pritzl has been granted a medical hardship for the 2015-16 season by the Big Ten Conference. The redshirt freshman will have four years of eligibility remaining in his collegiate playing career, beginning in 2016-17.

A native of De Pere, Wisconsin, Pritzl suffered a broken foot in August of 2015 and reinjured it on Dec. 1. He appeared in just one game for the Badgers during his freshman season.

The all-time leading scorer in De Pere High School, Pritzl scored 1,720 points in his prep career and helped lead the Redbirds to 84 wins and four conference championships.
