Wisconsin's Ethan Happ reaches incredible career milestone
Wisconsin forward Ethan Happ now has officially joined the exclusive 1,000 rebounds club.
On Saturday, the Badgers hosted Grambling State in their second-to-last non-conference matchup of the season. Happ needed a handful of rebounds to eclipse the milestone and he hit the mark in the second half of the contest.
Happ became the fourth player sine 1982 to record that many boards and is just the 15th player in B1G history to reach the milestone. That’s pretty elite company.
