>>COVID-19 Makes Yet Another Change To UW-Milwaukee Panthers Schedule

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The weekend series against Detroit Mercy has been called off and the UW-Milwaukee Panthers basketball team has to deal with yet another schedule change.  Positive COVID-19 tests within the Titans program left the Panthers with two openings Friday and Saturday.  A few quick phone calls and – now, IUPUI will take the court at Panther Arena Friday and Saturday mornings at 11:00 a-m.  The Colonials were free because the team from Robert Morris was also forced to take a break by positive test results. UW-Milwaukee has had seven of its 12 scheduled games canceled so far this season, all the result of the coronavirus pandemic.  The Panthers have played just once since December 20th.

>>Packers Planning On More Snaps For Snacks

(Green Bay, WI)  —  The Green Bay Packers like what they see with the newest team member.  Head coach Matt LaFleur and defensive coordinator Mike Pettine are planning to give nose tackle Damon “Snacks” Harrison some more playing time when the playoffs start.  The six-three, 340-pounder blew up a couple of running plays in the game against Tennessee.  The coaches say they might put him on the defensive line at the same time as starter Kenny Clark in some situations.  Green Bay grabbed Harrison when he was waived by the Seattle Seahawks a week ago.  He only had two practices and a walk-through to learn the schemes, but he still showed the Packers he could help.

>>Hoosiers Shooting For Upset When They Visit Wisconsin

(Madison, WI)  —  The Indiana Hoosiers have won two-in-a-row and evened their record at 2-and-2 in the Big Ten Conference.  If they’re going to run that streak to three straight, they will have to do it against the number-eight Wisconsin Badgers.  The two teams meet in a conference game at the Kohl Center tonight (Thursday) at 6:00 p-m.  A big key for the Badgers will be slowing down six-foot-nine sophomore forward Trayce Jackson-Davis of the visitors.  He’s averaging just over 20 points-a-game.  It’s likely that senior Micah Potter will get the defensive assignment.  The cancellation of the Penn State game Sunday meets Wisconsin will be playing a game for the first time in a week.

>>UW Women’s Hockey Look Forward To First Home Series In Almost 11 Months

(Madison, WI)  —  When Ohio State visits Wisconsin’s LaBahn Arena this weekend it will be the first home series for the Badgers in almost 11 months.  The U-W women’s hockey team last took to the home ice February 15th, 2020.  The opponent then was also Ohio State.  Wisconsin has skated to an 82-three-and-four record on the home ice since 2015.  The Badgers have gone unbeaten at home during two seasons.  This weekend is an important series.  Wisconsin is ranked number-one in the nation and the Buckeyes come in at number-four.
