NEW YORK—While the Florida Gators (27-8) were celebrating their 84-83 overtime victory over the Wisconsin Badgers (27-10) mere feet from the spot of Chris Chiozza’s game winning 3-point shot, Ethan Happ walked over to Zak Showalter, pulled him away from the Gators’ jubilant scrum and put his arm around Showalter’s right shoulder. “I told him that it was good,” Happ said.
