Sam Dekker is a professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Clippers of the NBA. Dekker played college basketball for the Wisconsin Badgers. After finishing college on a championship game run to the Final Four in the 2015 NCAA Tournament, Dekker was a very highly rated NBA draft prospect and was selected by the Houston Rockets with the 18th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.
In 2015, Dekker was named to the Second Team All-Big Ten by the coaches and by the media. But he really only took off in the NCAA Tournament. In the Sweet 16 against the number four seeded North Carolina Tar Heels, Dekker scored a career high 23 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead the 1-seed Wisconsin to a 79-72 victory. In the Elite 8 against the number 2-seeded Arizona Wildcats, Dekker again came up big, scoring a new career high 27 points, including 5 of the Badgers’s 10 second-half threes, the final of which is now known nationally as the “Dekker Dagger” shot because it sealed the win for Wisconsin. For these efforts, he was named West Regional Most Outstanding Player during the 2015 NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Tournament. In the Final Four game against the heavily favored and undefeated Kentucky Wildcats, Dekker came through with another huge game, scoring 16 points, including the three that gave Wisconsin the lead for good. The Badgers finished second in the NCAA tournament after losing to Duke in the championship game. A week later, Dekker declared for the 2015 NBA draft, forgoing his final year of college eligibility.
