WISCONSIN SPORTS ROUND-UP: Day of wins for UW sports teams

MADISON - It was a banner day for University of Wisconsin athletic teams as the Badgers grabbed wins in football, men’s basketball, men’s and women’s hockey plus learned both UW cross country teams will compete in next weekend’s NCAA national meet in Terre Haute, Ind.


Indiana’s high-powered offense was anything but, as the Wisconsin grid squad rolled to a 51-3 win yesterday afternoon at wet, windy and cold Camp Randall Stadium before a crowd of nearly 78,000 fans. The Badgers rushed for 554 yards in the win, including a James White 93-yard touchdown run on the first play from scrimmage which set a new school record. White ended with a career-high 205 yards in 20 carries, Melvin Gordon rushed for 146 yards in 15 carries and running back Corey Clement finished with 109 yards and two TDs. Wide receiver Jared Abbrederis didn’t catch a pass but he did run for 86 yards and two touchdowns. Meanwhile, the Badgers defense held the Hoosiers in check for the entire game, allowing just 224 total yards and 122 in passing. With the win, the 17th-ranked Badgers (8-2, 5-1) still have an outside shot of making a BCS at-large bowl.


Start time for next Saturday’s college football game between Wisconsin and Minnesota (8-2, 4-2) has been set for 2:30 p.m. at TCF Stadium. The game for Paul Bunyan’s Axe, the oldest played series in the FBS, will be broadcast on ESPN. Tickets are still available and can be purchased by calling the University of Minnesota ticket office or online at


The University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team outlasted UW-Green Bay Saturday evening 69-66 before a record crowd of nearly 10,000 at the Resch Center in Green Bay. UW could not celebrate the win until UWGB guard Keifer Sykes game-tying three-point shot was missed. Sykes’s game-high 32 points kept the Phoenix even with the Badgers. UW led at halftime 34-29 but Sykes almost single-handedly engineered a 10-1 run to put UWGB up by four at 39-35. Green Bay led by as many as six in the second half until UW-Madison came back led by 7-0 center Frank Kaminsky, who led the Badgers with 16 points and eight rebounds. Big Red’s Sam Dekker finished with 13 points and seven rebounds and Josh Gasser finished with 11 points. Sykes was the only UWGB player in double figures and the Phoenix were also hurt when big 7-1 center Alec Brown fouled out. No. 20 Wisconsin improves to 3-0. The Badgers host North Dakota Tuesday at the Kohl Center. Green Bay is 1-1 on the season.  


The University of Wisconsin’s men’s hockey team downed No. 8 ranked Miami in Oxford, Ohio Saturday 3-2. Wisconsin led 1-0 in the first period on Jake McCabe’s power play goal but the Red Hawks put in two goals in the second to lead 2-1. UW won the game with two third period goals by Michael Mersch and Joseph LaBate. Mersch also had an assist and Mark Zengerle finished with two assists. Joel Rumpel made his first start as goalie for the No. 12 ranked Badgers and finished with 32 saves. Wisconsin is 4-3-1 overall while Miami drops to 7-4-1. UW is off next weekend and will play its first Big Ten series Nov. 29-30 at Minnesota.


The University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team defeated Boston University 5-0 to win a tournament played in Vail, Colorado. Sydney McKibbon had a goal and an assist for the No. 2 ranked Badgers, 10-2 overall, as did Blayre Turnbull while Kelly Jaminski had two assists. Katy Joseph, Sarah Nurse and Karley Sylvester all scored goals for the Badgers. UW goalie Alex Rigsby made 19 saves.


Marquette University’s men’s basketball team suffered its first loss of the season, falling to 10th-ranked Ohio State yesterday by a final of 52-35 at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee. The Buckeyes ended the Golden Eagle’s 27-game home winning streak, the second-longest in the nation. Marquette’s Davante Gardner scored ten points and added six rebounds in the loss.


Injuries continue to plague the Green Bay Packers, as they get set for today’s game against the New York Giants. Quarterback Scott Tolzien will get his first career start today, covering for the injured Seneca Wallace and Aaron Rodgers. The undrafted rookie from Wisconsin was named the starter by head coach Mike McCarthy this week, saying he was pleased with performance during last week’s game and though practice this week. Packers and Giants kickoff today at 3:25 p.m.


One race to determine it all. It’s the Matt Kenseth verses Jimmy Johnson show for today’s final race of the Sprint Cup season at Homestead. The Wisconsin-native trails Johnson by 28 points, but enters today’s race with the pole position… followed by Johnson in seventh. Even if Kenseth were to win today’s race, Johnson has to finish 23rd or better to lock-up his sixth Sprint Cup championship.
