Wisconsin basketball's Jahcobi Neath provides update after surgery
Wisconsin basketball’s Jahcobi has provided an update on his status after undergoing surgery.
Neath underwent offseason knee surgery after playing in 23 games for the Badgers last season. He averaged 1.6 points and 1.5 rebounds per game as Wisconsin claimed a share of the B1G regular season title.
“Successful surgery, thanks for all the well wishes,” Neath wrote on social media. “I played this past season knowingly with a partial tear in my patella tendon. No regrets, I love this game and my team. Back and better soon.”

Neath transferred to Wisconsin after spending the first two years of his career at Wake Forest. Over that time, he appeared in 50 games and made 9 starts for the Demon Deacons.
With Wake Forest, Neath scored 233 points and collected 91 rebounds. He still has two years of eligibility to use with the Badgers, because of the NCAA’s COVID-19 waiver for the 2020-21 season.
Wisconsin ended the season with a 25-8 record and a 15-5 mark in the B1G. The Badgers advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
