Happ might declare for the NBA draft.

I'm not much for "moral" victories, but Bucky played 'em tough despite clearly superior talent and coaching.

A few more boxouts (got murdered on the offensive glass), a few more made FT's, one of Pritz's two missed bunnies going in and...

Add sharp-shooting former state Mr. Basketball/AP Player of the Year/2 time State Champ(Stevens Point)/UWGB transfer Trevor Anderson, the return of Meetch & King, and a healthy Davison playing his true position to the mix.

And you heard it here first, Taylor Currie will be the Next Big Thing!

I think that Happ would benefit from another year at UW. But I thought that about Nigel Hayes too, and it didn't seem to make any difference in his outcome.

The extra year certainly helped Kaminsky.

Happ will return. He needs more muscle and meat on his body to even think about competing in the NBA. Europe, no problem. I don't think Happ is even a 2nd Round draft pick at present.

BTN BB Analyst Andy Katz offers some uplift.

Seems Badger Nation had higher hopes for him than perhaps he had for himself; probably the best all around.
