Leading up to the NCAA Tournament, I’ll be providing season recaps for several teams for CBS Local: key wins, great individual performances, and more. Next up: the Wisconsin Badgers.
Just named the Big Ten’s Freshman of the Year, Ethan Happ would not have won the award if he didn’t sit out last season and take his lumps in practice from National Player of the Year Frank Kaminsky. Read my Rising Star feature on the Wisconsin forward on CBS Local.
Just as I’ve done the past two years, I shadowed a player at the NBA draft. This time it was Wisconsin’s Sam Dekker, who was drafted in the first round by the Houston Rockets. Part profile, part draft day diary, my story appears on the Wisconsin alumni website. There will also be a shorter version that appears in the school’s alumni magazine.
