MADISON (WLUK) -- The University of Wisconsin men's basketball team got a big boost when Ethan Happ decided to return for his senior season.

Happ had tested the waters for the NBA Draft, but instead decided to come back to the Badgers for the 2018-19 season.

Happ made the All-Big Ten first team the past two seasons. Last year, he averaged 17.9 points, 8 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.5 steals and 1 block per game.

Happ has started all 105 career games at Wisconsin.
