Boys basketball player of the year: Wichmann delivers on promise--Green Bay Press Gazette
Wichmann verbally committed to UW-Milwaukee before his senior season, and then put together perhaps his best year.

He averaged 15.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.5 assists and finished as Pulaski’s all-time leading scorer with 1,372 points despite playing in a conservative offensive system.

Wichmann was a unanimous pick to the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association all-state team in Division 2 and a fourth-team all-state selection by the Associated Press.

As for that promise Wichmann made to his grandfather?

He helped lead the Red Raiders to the WIAA Division 2 state title with a win over Wisconsin Lutheran at Madison’s Kohl Center in March, giving Pulaski its first team state championship in any sport.

“It was on my mind the whole time,” Wichmann said. “Not a lot of people know all that stuff. If I didn’t do it, it makes it that much worse.

“But it feels good to win and come out on top. Just do it for him, and know that my grandpa and my grandma were both looking down on me.”

Wichmann lost his maternal grandmother, Leah, in 2007.

Wichmann will start the next chapter of his basketball career in early June when he moves to Milwaukee in preparation for his first collegiate season with the Panthers.

“It really hasn’t hit me,” he said. “Spending these last couple months getting my body ready and getting everything ready for college.”

Broekhoff averaged 16 points per game and snared over 7 boards per. He's another prospect on the outside looking in, but his size and long range shooting ability (42% from 3) will make him a player who can find a valuable role at the next level.
