Move over Josh Gasser. You’ve got some company.
University of Wisconsin star Ethan Happ became the second player in school history to record a triple-double as the senior forward notched 10 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists in Wisconsin’s 85-63 nonconference drubbing of Coppin State on Tuesday night at the Kohl Center in Madison.
Gasser’s feat in 2011 came against Northwestern, and now Happ joins him on the list.
Happ only took seven shots in the Badgers victory and displayed a great deal of patience and floor vision with his helpers.
The results added up to 12 made 3-point baskets for UW.
D’Mitrik Trice had five of those from long range as he connected on more than half of his nine attempts in the contest.
Trice registered a game-high 21 points for the Badgers.
Brevin Pritzl came off the bench and rattled 4 of 7 home from beyond the arc to contribute to his 16 points.
Wisconsin scored 85 points despite shooting 41 percent from the floor.
The Badgers made their mark at the free-throw line instead, connecting on 23 of 26 from the charity stripe, which is a spot they really struggled from a season ago.
Brad Davison was next on the scoring list with nine, both coming off a pair of 3-pointers.
Nate Reuvers and Kobe King each had eight for Wisconsin. Reuvers also finished with three blocked shots, while Happ led that charge with four.
Khalil Iverson added seven points, while Charlie Thomas chipped in five.
Senior Alex Illikainen did not see the floor once again for the Badgers.
Wisconsin had just five turnovers.
