Ethan Happ is doing everything out here right now. Scoring in transition, playing tough inside, making great passes. Special young talent.

A Badgers team that entered this ACC/Big Ten Challenge game against Syracuse shooting 31.9 percent from the beyond the arc connected on 5 of its first 7 3-point attempts. They're working this zone with Nigel Hayes and Ethan Happ in the middle, leaving room for shooters on the perimeter. Great start for the Badgers.
