Ellen Chapman led all players with 20 kills, while the team hit .279 (67 kills, 21 errors and 165 attempts). With the win, the Badgers advance to today’s regional finals against Purdue, who upset host Illinois last night. The Badgers split with the Boilermakers this season, winning in Madison but losing at Purdue.

The University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team extended their winning streak to three games as they beat Colorado College 4-1 at the Kohl Center in Madison Friday evening. UW’s power play finally started to show results as they were 2-for-4 with goals coming from Joe LeBate and Nic Kerdelies, whose goal came just before the second period buzzer and broke a 1-1 tie. Michael Mersch and Fankie Simonelli also scored for UW, both in the third period. The Badgers also killed off two 5-on-3 power plays in the third period. Winning goalie Joel Rumpel made 24 saves. The series finale is this evening at 7 p.m.

Chicago’s Mike Dunleavy nailed a three-pointer with just five seconds left, stunning the Milwaukee Bucks 91-90. With 19 seconds to go, a bad inbound pass to Gary Neal ended up in the hands of Chicago’s Joakim Noah. With just 5.8 seconds to go, Dunleavy – a former Buck – hit the go-ahead three. It was also the first lead of the second half for the Bulls. Neal scored a team-high 17 points in the loss, John Henson added 15 points and eight rebounds.

Marquette University athletic director Larry Williams is stepping down. The 50-year-old Williams, a former NFL player and lawyer, served two year as AD. A spokesperson for the University says he is stepping down to pursue other interests. Men’s basketball coach Buzz Williams, often at odds with Williams over stricter team rules, says he was shocked at the announcement. Former athletic director Bill Cords takes over as the interim athletic director until a replacement is named.

Wisconsin-Whitewater is one game away from another Stagg Bowl next Friday, but face an unbeaten Mary Hardin-Baylor team this afternoon in the semifinals.

Kickoff is scheduled for 2:30. Winner advances to the national championship game to face either Mount Union or North Central College of Illinois.
