MADISON (WKOW) -- Traevon Jackson is determined to return to the floor next Sunday (3/1) as the Badgers host Michigan State on senior day for the four Badger seniors. Jackson has been out since Jan. 11 after fracturing his right foot in a loss at Rutgers. Jackson has not practiced since the injury and was still walking around in a walking boot on Sunday, but he's confident he'll be ready.

"I knew it was attainable before the process started. We set a timetable, so six weeks is up now. I set my goal probably early last week," Jackson said.

Jackson will make the trip with the team to Maryland on Tuesday and plans to join the team in practice after that. The Badgers have four games left in the regular season. 

"This is truly a blessing to have this time to be able to come back and just be a part of this great run we have. We have a great group of guys in there. I just want to help us win championships, not only the national one, but the Big Ten coming up here soon. I'm just happy to be a part of it," Jackson said.
