Photo: Wisconsin Zoo Names Badgers "Kaminsky" And "Dekker"

A Madison zoo is opening a new exhibitdedicated to Wisconsin's heritage, and it will apparently pay a bit of homage to the state school's basketball team. Henry Vilas Zoo will have a badger sett as part of the exhibit, and the two badgers will be named "Kaminsky" and "Dekker." It's obviously an ode to Frank Kaminsky and Sam Dekker, who led the team to the national title game just last year.

No word on if/when the two NBA players plan to visit.
