Four University of Wisconsin players are part of the second class to be inducted into the Kohl Center Legends Walk.
Jolene Anderson, Joe Pavelski, Alando Tucker and Jessie Vetter had their UW accomplishments celebrated in plaques installed in the Kohl Center's main concourse floor.
They join the building's main benefactor, former U.S. Sen. Herb Kohl, and three former Badgers coaches — men's basketball's Dick Bennett, women's basketball's Jane Albright and men's hockey's Jeff Sauer — in the Legends Walk.
This year's induction class includes players who set the career scoring record for the women's and men's basketball teams.
Tucker steps in for Howard Moore, who was seriously injured in a car crash in May that took the life of his wife and daughter.
