After an already illustrious career, Wisconsin Basketball star-forward Ethan Happ will play one final season with the Badgers. Happ announced his decision last night via Twitter with just six hours remaining before the withdrawal deadline for the 2018 NBA draft.Happ’s decision not to sign an agent prior to the draft allowed him the option to withdraw from consideration at any point before the May 31 deadline. While most did not think he would leave for the pros, Happ’s late withdrawal certainly left many Badger fans feeling anxious.The forward announced his intentions to declare for the NBA Draft following a season-ending loss to Michigan State in March. At the time, Happ was hoping to boost his stock with a potential NBA Combine invite that he ended up not receiving.Nigel Hayes discusses student athlete compensation, player boycottsNigel Hayes spoke at the “Future of College Sports: Reimagining Athlete Pay” panel The Aspen Institute hosted in Washington D.C. Tuesday. Here, Read…While Happ has undoubtedly been a stellar player for Wisconsin, many scouts feel his pro potential is questionable. The biggest knocks against him are his lack of a jump shot and poor lower body strength, both of which could hurt his ability to defend against more athletic NBA players.But Happ’s phenomenal footwork and attention to basketball fundamentals make his NBA prospect intriguing. If the rising senior can take a page from his predecessor Frank Kaminsky’s playbook and add a jump shot to his repertoire, Happ would almost certainly become a first-round pick and potentially a lottery selection to boot.For these reasons, Wisconsin will gladly welcome Happ back for his last year as the Badgers look to return to the NCAA Tournament.After a plethora of injuries, Wisconsin seems geared to compete with the Big Ten’s best next season. Last year’s starting point guard D’Mitrik Trice and freshman Kobe King will return after missing nearly all but the first 10 games of the 2017-18 season.A look back at this semester in sports: Performances, seasons, careers that defined spring 2018This semester is almost through — I know this because I saw the sun last week and haven’t been to Read…Additionally, star guard Brad Davison is expected to have recovered from a shoulder injury that hampered him for most of the 2017-18 season after undergoing surgery in March.With Happ rounding out the roster, and many of the younger players developing, this could be the best Wisconsin team we’ll see for a couple years as most of the team’s talent is focused in its second year players. Davison, Nate Reuvers and Aleem Ford highlight this class.Wisconsin and Happ will kickoff the season on Dec. 8 versus Marquette.

Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino believes the fractured relationships within the current Blues squad is completely unprecedented – and manager Jose Mourinho is ‘shell-shocked’ at the ongoing turmoil.The Premier League champions have endured a torrid start to the season, languishing in 15th after losing half of their ten league games so far including a 2-1 defeat to West Ham at the weekend.Mourinho, meanwhile, has publicly slammed his players and faced numerous FA charges for his behaviour with disharmony at Stamford Bridge seemingly rife.Cascarino believes Chelsea have turned into a soap opera, particularly as defender Gary Cahill was forced to face the media instead of his manager after the West Ham defeat.“It feels like every week that there is another episode in front of us. You just don’t know what’s around the corner now,” Cascarino told Drivetime.“I think Mourinho must be shell-shocked because he has never experienced anything like this in his career – we are all expecting things to change but they haven’t.“The strange thing about Saturday was that Cahill faced the media. He had to explain their loss to West Ham and what was happening which I thought was really strange.“There must be relationships at the club that are nowhere near as strong as they once were. “When the books come out a few years down the line we’ll find out a lot more about this period because one thing is for sure – it doesn’t all add up.”
