RM at UWisconsin to Sit Out Sunday Basketball Games

MADISON, WISCONSIN -- Ricky Bower, a freshman recruit on the University of Wisconsin's basketball team, will not play in the team's Sunday games, according to a report in yesterday's Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Bower, who missed two seasons while on an LDS mission in Poland, committed to the Badgers this past month, after making it clear to Badger coach Dick Bennett that he wouldn't play or practice on Sundays.

Bower joined the team after guard Julian Swartz took a leave of absence. He is expected to compete for playing time at the shooting guard position this year. While the team's practice schedule varies from week to week, currently only two conference games may be played on Sunday, a February 18th game against Northwestern, and a game to be played either March 3rd or 4th against Iowa. The non-conference schedule has not yet been completed.
