Sophomore forward has surgery
The surgery, conducted Monday by team orthopedist Dr. John Orwin, was successful, but Tucker will miss eight to 10 weeks while he rehabilitates the foot.
The Badgers start practice Saturday, and their first exhibition game is Nov. 8. The regular season begins Nov. 21.
Tucker played in all 32 games as a freshman, starting 27.
He finished the season third on the team in scoring at 12 points per game and was third in rebounding at 5.9. He was a member of the Big Ten's all-freshman team.
