Not declaring an agent allowed him to potentially return to school for his senior season, which he has chosen.
Happ, a 6′ 8″ forward, averaged 17.9 points, 8.0 rebounds and 3.7 assists for this year’s Badgers. They had their first losing season since 1997-98, and missed the NCAA Tournament for the first time since that same year.
He ranked 4th in the nation in both 2-point field goals and 2-point field goal attempts.
