Dukan will redshirt

MADISON, Wis. – Junior forward Duje Dukan announced on Sunday his intention to redshirt the 2012-13 season for the Wisconsin men’s basketball team.

“I’ve decided to redshirt basically due to the lingering effects of having mono from this fall,” Dukan explained Sunday. “I missed most of the month of September and I felt like I could definitely contribute, but the recovery process has lasted longer than I expected. I feel like I’d be playing catch-up the whole season and I didn’t want to waste a year. I can instead use this season for development and to get stronger and help my teammates reach our goals this season.”

A native of Deerfield, Ill., Dukan has appeared in 21 career games over the last two seasons. Dukan saw duty in 13 games last season, scoring nine points and grabbing seven rebounds. He will continue to practice with his teammates this season and will play as a redshirt junior for the Badgers in 2013-14.
