When the Wisconsin women’s basketball team entered practice Thursday, redshirt junior guard Lexy Richardson probably didn’t think she would be mentioned in the same sentence as Houston Texans star defensive end J.J. Watt.

Badgers coach Jonathan Tsipis had the team gathered around the whiteboards and TV monitor in their practice gym and began talking about the importance of walk-ons and what they meant to a prorgram. As Tsipis began listing some of the great walk-ons in Wisconsin history, most notably Watt, an eruption from the team interrupted him before he could even finish his sentence.

“It’s my honor,” Tsipis said, “Lexy Richardson …” 

The Verona, Wisconsin native appeared in 13 games for the Badgers last season and played in three during the 2015-16 campaign.

If football season was any early indication, all the feels from scholarship videos will likely continue into the basketball season.
