Edgewood College men's hoops on the move

What struck me when I first saw Cashton Craig play basketball for Madison La Follette five years ago was that the kid couldn't stand still. Even as others shot free throws, the All-City guard would pace in the backcourt, his feet never pausing long on the floor. He seemed to always play with a sense of urgency, slashing to the hoop or diving into the passing lanes on defense. >More
 Fond of the UW Field House

The Badgers men's basketball team plays at Minnesota Thursday night (Feb. 9), which means broadcasters calling the game will refer early and often to Williams Arena's antiquated charm and barrel-vaulted ceiling, chuckling about its elevated floor and lack of modern accoutrements. >More
 Trouble in Barryland

The troubling news involving allegations of sexual assault at a pre-Rose Bowl party by resigned UW-Madison associate athletic director John Chadima brings back something former UW history professor and athletic board member Jeremi Suri told me in an interview four years ago. >More
 How relevant are the Milwaukee Bucks?

The Milwaukee Bucks have rarely been relevant in the Madison sports scene, due mainly to their history of ineptitude -- and the presence of a competitive college team right here at the UW. But the addition of former Badgers star Jon Leuer to the Bucks' roster has forced a lot of local hoopheads to once again take notice of the NBA's Milwaukee franchise. >More
 Where's the ? for Wisconsin women's hockey?

The defending national champion Wisconsin women's hockey team has won four out of the last six national titles. Ranked first in the country, the Badgers (20-2-2) are favored to make another title run this season. >More
 Ten things I learned about Aaron Rodgers from listening to Tuesdays with Aaron

Tuesdays with Aaron is quarterback Aaron Rodgers' weekly sit-down with ESPN Milwaukee's Jason Wilde. The normally media-shy athlete dishes on topics such as family, pop culture, and, of course, football. Rodgers and Wilde have a healthy working relationship and it makes for some quality radio. >More
 Dancing like the Packers 101

A-Rodg's touchdown celebration starts with both hands in the middle of your stomach, palms in and thumbs up. Move them around your middle to your sides, as though tracing the outline of a wide belt. Suitable after picking up a critical spare in bowling. >More
 Why we love our Green Bay Packers

If you're like most Green Bay Packers fans, you've always loved the Green and Gold. You grew up watching the Pack with your family, spending too much money on memorabilia, poring over the sports page and making occasional pilgrimages to Lambeau whenever a ticket became available. You're number 2534 (Ryan Grant, Edgar Bennett) on the season ticket waiting list, with no preference given to your status as a team owner. >More
 Madtown Throwdown is back

After an 18-month hiatus, Madtown Throwdown returns to the Alliant Energy Center this Saturday. One of the event's originators and licensed match maker Pat O'Malley took a moment to talk to The Daily Page about getting the event back on its feet and the misconceptions about what the new state regulations mean for MMA in Wisconsin. >More
 Badgers men's hoops need to get it inside

The Badgers' offense is designed to be highly efficient, and they're averaging 1.13 points per possession so far this year, while the defense is giving up just 0.8 points per possession, according to stats guru Ken Pomeroy's formula. Those numbers would normally predict success, so why are the Badgers 1-2 in the Big Ten and, more importantly, 1-3 against decent teams? >More
