    Shabazz Napier scored 22 points and Connecticut won its second NCAA title in four years, beating all those Kentucky freshmen 60-54 in the championship game Monday night.

    Make the NCAA start over? Good planApr 7, 2014 12:00 AM
    NCAA president Mark Emmert conducted a news conference Sunday at the site of the NCAA basketball tournament’s Final Four. Naturally, among the topics was the attempt to unionize football players at Northwestern. Media reports quoted Emmert as saying, “To convert to a unionized employee model is to throw away the entire collegiate model for athletics.” So there would be a problem with that?

  • Wisconsin guard Ben Brust dunks during practice Friday in Dallas.

    Final Four preview: Wisconsin vs. KentuckyApr 4, 2014 12:00 AM
    Kentucky has a coach labeled a renegade, a rotating stable of McDonald’s All-Americans and sky high expectations every year. Wisconsin has a coach who has stayed firmly in one state for three decades, a lineup filled with juniors and seniors and an aw-shucks attitude about its first trip to the Final Four in more than a decade. They meet Saturday in the national semifinals.

  • Judson baseball team fights through adversityApr 3, 2014 12:00 AM
    Injuries can be an extremely unkind part of sports. In the case of the Judson University baseball team, unkindness has be thrown to the curb and replaced with optimism and results. The Eagles have weathered the loss of three key roster components and stood at 19-12 overall and 5-2 in the early stages of CCIW play through midweek. Judson recently swept its home conference doubleheader opener against Olivet Nazarene.

    Maturing Kaminsky helps Wisconsin to Final FourApr 3, 2014 12:00 AM
    Frank Kaminsky took offense to the question: No, he is not funnier this year! “I think I’m a little more mature this year, thank you very much,” the Wisconsin big man said with a straight face this week. A little goofy around his teammates, Kaminsky has been all business on the court in leading the Badgers’ charge to the Final Four.

     
  • Wisconsin ‘s Frank Kaminsky reacts after making a three-point basket during the second half in a regional final NCAA college basketball tournament game against Arizona on March 29 in Anaheim, Calif.

    Big names like Kaminsky keep leaving IllinoisApr 2, 2014 12:00 AM
    Frank Kaminsky, a product of Benet Academy in Lisle, has helped Wisconsin into the Final Four. That's as good an explanation as any for the sorry state of college basketball in the state of Illinois.

     
  • Northwestern quarterback Matt Alviti hands off to wide receiver Miles Shuler, right, as the football team participates in an NCAA college spring football practice Tuesday in Evanston. After spring break, Northwestern resumed spring football practices with a huge issue that could change the college sports landscape hanging over their heads. A regional director of the National Labor Relations Board ruled last week that the team can bargain with the school as employees.

    Union question looms as Northwestern practicesApr 1, 2014 12:00 AM
    Northwestern running back Venric Mark says he is not sure all his teammates who signed union cards in January realized the ramifications. Mark says some players signed, some did not. He wonders if those who did “knew what they were or if they thought it was going to turn out the way it did.”

     
  • Wisconsin ‘s Traevon Jackson celebrates in front of Arizona’s Nick Johnson (13) as time runs out in overtime of a regional final NCAA college basketball tournament game, Saturday in Anaheim, Calif. Wisconsin is now prepping for its Final Four game.

    Wisconsin tightens D in NCAA runApr 1, 2014 12:00 AM
    Changing defense was one less thing the Badgers (30-7) had to worry about during an already memorable season that has Wisconsin facing Kentucky (28-10) in the Final Four on Saturday. Like any good coach still in the hunt, Bo Ryan will just as easily point to things to improve. The new rules emphasis, though, probably wasn’t on high on the list. “We haven’t been a ‘handsy’ team in the past, so we just need to keep working on our positioning and our footwork,” Ryan said in December.
