WISCONSIN SPORTS ROUND-UP: Players, coaches with UW ties dot Super Bowl

Email

NEW YORK - It’s Super Bowl Sunday, and while only one team can win the coveted title of “World Champion”… Wisconsin football picks up a win regardless.

Both the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos have several former Badgers on each roster. Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson leads the Seahawks to the Super Bowl in his second season in the NFL,  while his former teammate, running back Monte Ball, is having a stellar rookie season with the Broncos. Other former Badgers to keep an eye on includes linebacker O’Brien Schofield and safety Chris Maragos. Former UW quarterback Darrell Bevell is Seattle’s assistant coach.

The Green Bay Packers picked up a couple of season awards last night. Running back Eddie Lacy was named the 2013 Offensive Rookie of the Year. The former second-round draft pick from Alabama rushed for over 1,100 yards and 11 touchdowns in his first NFL season. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers won the GMC “Never Say Never Moment of the Year” award for his game-winning touchdown pass against the Chicago Bears to win the NFC North title. During his acceptance speech, Rodgers thanked wide receiver Randall Cobb for “running the wrong route”.

For the first time in Buzz William’s six seasons at Marquette, the Golden Eagles may be missing the Big Dance. Derrick Wilson scored 14 points in a 74-59 blowout loss to St. John’s. Marquette shot only 34-percent from the field and was 3-of-14 from the three-point arc. The loss puts the Golden Eagles in a very tough spot for tournament contention, falling to 4-5 in conference play.

Freshman Nigel Hayes scored 17 points off the bench, but it wasn’t enough for the No. 14 ranked University of Wisconsin men's basketball team to knock off 24th-ranked Ohio State. The Badgers dropped their third-straight game at home, losing to the Buckeyes by a final of 59-58. Sophomore Sam Dekker had one final shot to win the game, but was short of sinking the buzzer-beating three. The Badgers have now dropped five of their last six contest since a school-record 16-0 start.

The University of Wisconsin’s men’s hockey team notched a 2-2 tie against Michigan at Yost Ice Arena in Ann Arbor Saturday. The Badgers got goals from Michael Mersch and Mark Zengerle in the first period to lead 2-1 but Michigan tied the score in the third with Luke Moffat’s goal at the 7:21 mark and picked up an extra-point by winning the shoot-out. UW is 14-8-2 overall and 5-4-1 in the Big Ten. UW hosts No. 1 ranked Minnesota next Thursday and Friday.

____________________

Nick Calathes' first career NBA start resulted in his best game since he entered the league. The University of Florida product had 22 points on 8-of-12 shooting to lead the Memphis Grizzlies to a 99-90 win over the Milwaukee Bucks Saturday night. Zach Randolph totaled 23 points and 10 rebounds, and Marc Gasol contributed 19 points for Memphis, which beat the Bucks for a seventh straight time. The Grizzlies have won six in a row overall and 11 of their last 12 games. A second-round draft pick out of the University of Florida in 2009, Calathes was appearing in just his 35th NBA game. Subbing for an injured Mike Conley, Calathes went 4-of-5 from 3-point range. His previous career-high was 11 points, Jan. 25 against Houston. Brandon Knight had 23 points, six boards and seven assists for the Bucks, who suffered their sixth straight defeat.
