Last season, Vogt started in 21 of 23 games for the Bearcats and averaged 19.4 minutes. He averaged 5 points, 3.5 boards and 1.1 blocks per game.
With several pieces of last year’s team gone, Wisconsin was looking to add some immediate talent and experience to the roster. Greg Gard landed a good one with Vogt.
Wisconsin ended the 2020-21 season with an 18-13 record and was 10-10 in league play. The Badgers defeated North Carolina in the first round of the NCAA Tournament before falling to Baylor in Round 2.
