Badgers return home with chance to pick up points

After a week out of league play, the No. 16 Wisconsin men's hockey team jumps back into WCHA action this weekend with a home series against the Michigan Tech Huskies. After splitting series the last two weekends, the Badgers (5-4-1 WCHA, 8-5-1 overall) look to gain ground in the conference standings, with four points up for grabs. The Huskies come to Madison with a record of 3-9-0 (2-8-0 WCHA) and find themselves in the basement of the league.

Jennings glad he began his career overseas

Last year Brandon Jennings became the first basketball player to go international rather than participate at the college level. His experience abroad has paid off so far, as the Milwaukee Bucks guard is averaging 22 points per game this year, including his 55-point effort a few weeks ago. With the NBA's collective bargaining agreement expiring in 2011, there are rumblings that Commissioner David Stern may try to raise the league's 19-year old age minimum. Based on Jennings' positive results from his abroad experience, raising the age limit could send even more potential NBA stars and NCAA standouts to international leagues.

Race for AFC postseason spots getting closer

Typically at this point in the season, the NFL playoff picture is getting clearer with each passing week. This season, however, that trend is only holding true in one conference. The NFC playoff picture is taking shape with both Green Bay and Philadelphia winning last week to improve to 7-4 to separate themselves from the 6-5 Giants and Falcons. It's pretty certain the final five weeks will be a battle between these four teams for the two wild-card spots, with Green Bay and Philadelphia in the driver's seat.

For five of the Wisconsin women's hockey team's first six series, there was a troubling trend the Badgers tried to stop.
