No rest for the weary: UW faces No. 9 Duluth

For the second weekend in a row, the Badgers are set to tangle with a top dog. Last weekend, Wisconsin went toe to toe with the top-ranked team in the country and came away with three points. Now it travels to Duluth with a chance to deliver a similar performance and dethrone the current WCHA leader.

Postseason failures plague Wisconsin

Now that February is almost upon us, it is only one short month until the most exciting event in college sports: March Madness. With the Badgers owning a surprising No. 16 ranking, and currently only second to Michigan State in the Big Ten standings, I started to wonder how Wisconsin might fare in this year's Big Dance. Even with Wisconsin's impressive 16-5 record, it didn't take long for me to come up with an answer: at best, a win or two.

The Wisconsin women's basketball team is coming off a much-needed one-week hiatus. This mental and physical break is well-deserved following a tough loss against Penn State at home last Thursday, a game that carried with it a lot of opportunity and emotion.

Pair of ranked teams to clash in West Lafayette

Since junior forward Jon Leuer went down with a wrist injury over two weeks ago, Wisconsin has done more than stay afloat. The Badgers are 3-1 without Leuer and have risen to second place in the Big Ten. But tonight brings Wisconsin's greatest test without Leuer, as the No. 16 Badgers (6-2 Big Ten, 16-4 overall) travel to West Lafayette for a critical matchup with No. 12 Purdue (4-3, 16-3).

After a series like the battle between No. 3 Wisconsin and No. 1 Denver this weekend, there is a temptation to focus on the immediate themes like the massive momentum swings and how the Badgers took the final swing to get a three point weekend.

Wisconsin takes series against No. 1 Denver

If there was any question as to what a series between two premier college hockey teams should look like, the No. 3 Wisconsin Badgers and No. 1 Denver Pioneers provided a clear answer at the Kohl Center this weekend. After battling back from a two-goal deficit in a frantic third period to force a tie on Friday night, Wisconsin took to the ice on Saturday in front of a sell-out crowd and grabbed an early lead. Denver clawed back into the game late, but senior forward Michael Davies notched the game winner for the Badgers with less than seven minutes to play, earning UW a three-point weekend while solidifying a spot in the thick of the conference championship race.

Eleven months ago, the Denver Pioneers entered the Kohl Center for a home series against the Badgers with a lot on the line. At the time, Wisconsin, Denver and North Dakota were fighting for the WCHA's regular season title and the MacNaughton Cup, and in two of their final three series of the 2008-'09 season, the Badgers would face both of those teams.
