MADISON -- How cute is this? A zoo in Madison has named two of its new additions after a pair of former Wisconsin basketball players.
The Henry Vilas Zoo announced Wednesday that its two male badgers will be named after Sam Dekker and Frank Kaminsky.
Kaminsky played for UW from 2011-2015 and now plays professionally for the Charlotte Hornets. Dekker, a Sheboygan native, played for UW from 2012-2015 and now plays professionally for the Houston Rockets.
The animals will be featured in the Wisconsin Heritage Exhibit. When competed in the fall, the exhibit will honor Wisconsin's history, which includes the one and only Bucky Badger.
Dekker shared his excitement about the news on Twitter:
