Wisconsin's Sam Dekker Drains 'Dagger' 3 vs. Arizona, Aaron Rodgers Loves It

If you didn't know his name before, you better now.

Wisconsin junior Sam Dekker was on fire from behind the arc Saturday against Arizona, going 5-of-6 from deep. Late in the second half, he hit a three-point jumper to put the Badgers up by eight with just over 17 seconds left.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and girlfriend Olivia Munn were in the crowd, and he was clearly pumped up after the big shot.

After the shot, Dekker's brother, John, posted a picture of his reaction after the shot.

Dekker finished with 27 points in the 85-78 win, helping Wisconsin punch its ticket to the Final Four. 

Since Rodgers also caught Wisconsin's Sweet 16 game, we're pretty sure he isn't going home yet.
