>>Former Badgers WR Cephus Files Federal Lawsuit Against University
(Madison, WI) — Former Wisconsin Badgers wide receiver Quintez Cephus is suing the university saying he was used as a scapegoat two-and-a-half years ago. Cephus is seeking damages for the violation of his due process rights, violations of Title Nine provisions, and breach of contract. Cephus was suspended from the football team in August 2018, then expelled from the University of Wisconsin-Madison after his arrest on sexual assault charges. When a jury acquitted the athlete, he was reinstated. His attorney in the federal suit says NFL agents and draft analysts believe Cephus would have been drafted earlier than the fifth round – meaning more money – if he hadn’t been expelled.

>>North Carolina Basketball Fills Open Date With Marquette
(Chapel Hill, NC) — The North Carolina Tarheels (14-and-7) basketball program didn’t want an open date. Coach Roy Williams wanted to play. When Boston College said it was going to have to postpone its game against the perennial power, Marquette was contacted and the Golden Eagles will hit the court in the Dean Smith Center in Chapel Hill. Marquette (10-and-12) is a solid underdog in the road game tipping off tonight (Wednesday) at 6:00 p-m. The 14-and-7 Tarheels are undefeated in eight games on their home court. The last time the two teams met was almost 10 years ago in March 2011 – with North Carolina whipping Marquette 81-63 in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament.
