Gasser goes where only Magic had gone before

Give it up for Wisconsin freshman John Gasser.

The guard logged the first triple-double in school history during a 78-46 win against Northwestern Sunday. And that’s just for starters.

The Wisconsin State Journal also noted that his 10-point, 12-rebound, 10-assist outing also was the first triple-double by a Big Ten freshman since a guy named Earvin Johnson did it for Michigan State back in 1977. But the league didn’t record assists as an official stat back then, so Gasser gets the nod as the first freshman.

He’s also the first frosh to log a triple-double in D-I play this season, and just the 1tth overall.
