Wisconsin’s Nigel Hayes needs 50k RTs to get game in hometown

Wisconsin basketball star Nigel Hayes needs the help of the college basketball world and the Badgers faithful to achieve a dream.

Hayes took to Twitter this week to announce Badgers’ assistant coach Lamont Paris said the Ohio native needs 50,000 retweets on social media in order to schedule a game against his hometown team, Toledo.

Like Hayes, Paris is also an Ohio native.

Hayes withdrew his name from the 2016 NBA Draft pool earlier this year in order to return to Wisconsin for his final season.

If he can get the help of the internet, Hayes could achieve one of his dreams of returning home to put his talents on display one final time before heading to the next level.

Everyone get to retweeting!
