And Bailey Scheich, girlfriend of Wisconsin’s Sam Dekker, just jumped to the top of the leaderboard for college basketball girlfriend of the year. If you were looking for a March Madness breakout star for CBS cameras to show after big Wisconsin baskets, Scheich is your new star.
Here’s the interesting part of this Dekker-Scheich relationship: she’s a Michigan student, who is originally from just south of Ann Arbor. Dekker is from Sheboygan, WI. Scheich wears red when she’s at Wisconsin events. Dekker (13.4 ppg; 5.2 rpg) has worn Michigan colors at Michigan events. Yes, it’s strange, but Dekker took care of business on Jan. 24 in Ann Arbor, dropping 15 in a 69-64 OT victory. Scheich wore her school colors to that game.
There’s always a star couple this time of year. Nik Stauskas’ girlfriend, Taylor Anderson, made her BC debut about this time last year. It’s time for Scheich to carry the torch.
