Moesch to redshirt 2013-14 season


Nov. 7, 2013

MADISON, Wis. -- Freshman forward Aaron Moesch announced on Thursday his intention to redshirt the 2013-14 season for the Wisconsin men’s basketball team.

An honorable-mention WBCA Division 1 all-state honoree as a senior, Moesch played three years on the varsity squad at Green Bay Southwest, eclipsing the 1,000-point scoring plateau in his final season.

"I think in the long run, redshirting this season will really benefit me and hopefully the team,” Moesch said. “As a freshman, this season is full of adjustments and spending the year on scout team will give me the chance watch, learn and help my teammates day in and day out.”

Moesch, a native of Green Bay, Wis., will continue to practice with his teammates this season and will play as a redshirt freshman for the Badgers in 2014-15.

"Redshirting also provides me an opportunity to really get my feet wet from an academic standpoint,” Moesch added. “If everything goes right, I will graduate in four years and be able to pursue my master's degree during my fifth year. I love it here. It's truly a win-win situation."

The No. 20-ranked Badgers open the regular-season on Friday against St. John’s at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, S.D. Tipoff is slated for 6 p.m. CT on Big Ten Network.
