WISCONSIN SPORTS ROUND-UP: Badger women's hockey team wins shootout over UND

GRAND FORKS, N.D. - The second-ranked University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team earned a 0-0 tie with fourth-ranked North Dakota last night. It’s the first time North Dakota was held scoreless all year.

Junior Blayre Turnbull sealed the shootout draw in the third round, making it the first time the Badgers have ever won a shootout with North Dakota. Senior Alex Rigsby got her 26thcareer shutout, second most in school history. The series wraps-up tonight at 7:00 at Ralph Englestad Arena.


Despite holding onto a lead in the fourth quarter, the Milwaukee Bucks fell in overtime to the 76ers last night, 115-107. Milwaukee held a 98-88 lead with over two minutes to play when Philadelphia went on a 14-4 run that ended with a last-second three pointer, sending the game into overtime. The Bucks put up only five points in the overtime loss. Caron Butler led all players with 38 points and going 4-for-8 from the arc. The Bucks are now riding a seven-game losing streak.


The No. 24 ranked University of Wisconsin wrestling team won a non-conference dual meet Friday afternoon over American University 31-6 in Washington.  AU's lone win was a forfeit at 197 pounds. Three UW wrestlers, Tyler Graff at 133 pounds, Isaac Jordan at 157 and Connor Medberry at heavyweight all remain unbeaten on the season with perfect 8-0 record with wins. Graff and UW's Jesse Thielke both recorded technical falls which put UW up 10-0 after two matches. Wisconsin improves to 6-2 overall and wrestles in the Navy Classic today.


Monona Grove came back from 17 points down today to win the WIAA Division 3 state high school football championship at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison.  Greendale was held scoreless in the second half as Monona Grove scored three touchdowns after the break, and beat Greendale 21-17.  Senior Brock Offerdahl scored the decisive touchdown for the Silver Eagles with 53 seconds to go. Tyler Blang threw for 217 yards and a pair of second-half touchdowns, as Monona Grove finished 14-0.  Greendale ended up 13-1. In other championship games from Friday, Kimberly beat Oshkosh North 51-10 in Division 2 and Hartaland Arrowhead defeated Franklin 45-24 in Division 1.


Green Bay Packers' quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw a little bit at practice Friday -- but as expected, he'll sit out of Sunday's home contest against Minnesota. Rodgers is getting over a broken collarbone. Also out are linebacker Nick Perry, tackle Don Barclay, and corners James Nixon and Casey Hayward. Defensive lineman Johnny Jolly is doubtful with an injured groin. Corner Sam Shields is questionable with an injured hamstring. Coach Mike McCarthy said Shields has had an up-and-down week, and he could be a game-time decision on Sunday. Corner Micah Hyde is listed as probable with a groin injury. Linebackers Clay Matthews, Mike Neal, and Andy Mulumba are also listed as probable for the Vikings' game, along with defensive lineman Ryan Pickett.  


The Green Bay Packers do not believe they're over-using Eddie Lacy -- not now, at least.  The rookie running back leads the NFL in carries since he was named the full-time starter back in Week-Four.  And there are no signs of that abating, as the Packers get ready to host Minnesota on Sunday.  Lacy has had 157 carries since then, six more than LeSean McCoy of Philadelphia and 11 more than Marshawn Lynch of Seattle.  Lacy's back-up, James Starks, has only had six carries in his last two games.  You might think the Packers are concerned that Lacy will hit the proverbial "rookie wall" at some point -- but the coaches don't seem to be concerned about that right now.  Running backs' coach Alex Van Pelt says he looks for signs that Lacy might be wearing down -- things like slower movement and duller foot action at practice -- but he hasn't seen them.  Lacy has had occasional injury problems at college.  He did have a hamstring injury at Training Camp, and he suffered a concussion in late September against Cincinnati.  Since then, however, Lacy has been injury-free.  Defenses have made it more of a priority to control Lacy ever since quarterback Aaron Rodgers went out with a broken collarbone November fourth.  Lacy's average per carry has dropped from four-point-six yards to two-point-six over his last five games.


The Milwaukee Brewers traded reliever Burke Badenhop to the Boston Red Sox for minor league left-hander Luis Ortega.  The 30-year-old Badenhop spent one season in Milwaukee, after being traded from Tampa Bay almost a year ago.  He made 63 relief appearances for the Crew with one save, a 2-3 record, and an ERA of almost 3.50  Badenhop was up for salary arbitration this winter, after he made just over one-and-a-half million dollars this year.  Ortega is 20.  He went 3-3 in 12 appearances for Boston's rookie team in the Gulf Coast League with one start and a 2.45 ERA.


Cole Klotz of UW-Whitewater has been named the WIAC's football player-of-the-year.  And Platteville's Mike Emendorfer is the league's coach-of-the-year.  Klotz, a senior linebacker, had four games with at least nine tackles in the regular season -- including a season-high 11 against Stevens Point and River Falls.  Emendorfer led Platteville to its first-ever NCAA Division III playoff appearance.  There were six repeat selections from a year ago on the All-WIAC first team -- Eric Kindler and Loussaint Minnett of Whitewater, Cole Myhra and Zach Kasuboski of Oshkosh, Ryley Bailey of Platteville, and Joel Sweeney of Eau Claire.


Wisconsin has four teams among the Field-of-32 in the NCAA Division III football playoffs.  They're playing each other this afternoon, so we already know that two of the state's teams will move on, and the other two will be one-and-done.  UW-Whitewater hosts Saint Norbert of De Pere -- and Concordia-Wisconsin is at UW-Platteville.  At 10-0, Whitewater has the top seed on the right side of the bracket.  The WIAC champion Warhawks missed the playoffs last year, after making it to the Division III title game the previous seven years -- all against Mount Union, winning four times.  This year, Mount Union tops the left side of the bracket -- setting up another potential showdown with Whitewater in December.  Tomorrow, the Warhawks open against a Saint Norbert team that's 8-2 after winning the Midwest Conference title. 9-1 Platteville punched its ticket to the post-season last week, by taking second in the WIAC with a last-second 17-16 win over Oshkosh, which failed to make the playoffs after being in the Top-10 in the polls for most of the year.  Platteville hosts a Concordia team that's 8-2.  The Falcons from Mequon earned its tournament berth by winning the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference title.


The University of Wisconsin men's cross country team will go for its second NCAA championship in three years today, when the national meet is held in Terre Haute, Indiana.  The Badger men won the title in 2011, and finished second to Oklahoma State last year.   Oklahoma State has won three-of-the-last four men's titles.  The Wisconsin women will also compete in the national meet for the first time since 2011. In Division III, a trio of Wisconsin men's teams will compete along with two women's squads tomorrow in their national cross country meet in Hanover, Indiana.  UW-Eau Claire, La Crosse, and Oshkosh all won at-large berths on the men's side.  La Crosse won the automatic berth on the women's side by winning the regional and Stevens Point was given an at-large bid too.  Some individual runners from other Wisconsin schools were also invited to compete -- Sam Poser and Joe Walden of Platteville -- Jessop Keene and Patrick Jenkins of Stout -- Tia Harris of River Falls -- and Katie Kummerer of Carthage.
