>>Badgers Hockey Advances To Big Ten Title Game With 4-3 OT Win Over Penn State

(South Bend, IN)  —  Wisconsin sophomore forward Cole Caufield tied the score with a goal in regulation, then won the game with another goal in overtime in Monday’s 4-3 win over Penn State.  The Badgers trailed twice during a tense third period.  Freshman Sam Stange and Ty Emberson scored the other two Wisconsin goals in the semifinals of the Big Ten Conference Tournament.  Goaltender Robbie Beydoun had 43 saves.  Wisconsin meets Border Rival Minnesota for the tournament championship tonight (Tuesday) at 7:00 p-m.  The Badgers won three out of the four meetings between the two teams during the regular season.  The two goals by Caufield in his seventh straight multi-point game give him 27 – nine more than any other college scorer.

>>Former Brewers Slugger Ryan Braun Not Ready To Say “Retired,” But He’s Not Coming Back Either

(Phoenix, AZ)  —  Former Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun says he’s still in shape and he’s not ready to say he’s “retired,” but he’s not returning to action right now.  Braun is a 37-year-old free agent, but he also says he can’t see coming back to play for any team other than the Brewers.  He flew into the team’s camp Monday to visit with former teammates like Christian Yelich and spent a couple of innings in the broadcast booth with Bob Uecker.  Brett Anderson took the loss as the Brewers were pounded by San Diego 13-3.  Milwaukee has split its 14 spring training games so far with a contest against the Dodgers today (Tuesday).  Braun says he worked out with Yelich over the winter, but he hasn’t picked up a baseball or a bat since he suffered a ribcage injury in the season-ending loss to Los Angeles in the National League Wild Card Series.

>>Corey Linsley Becomes Highest-Paid NFL Center – Not With The Packers

(Los Angeles, CA)  —  All-Pro center Corey Linsley has agreed to a contract that will make him the highest-paid center in the NFL – and it won’t be with the Green Bay Packers. NFL Network is reporting Linsley will get a five-year deal from the Los Angeles Chargers worth up to 62-and-a-half-million dollars.  The Packers wanted Linsley back, but they couldn’t match that deal.  Linsley becomes the eighth center in the league with a  contract averaging 10-million dollars-a-season.  He played 734 snaps in Green Bay last season, allowing four total pressures and one sack.  He was never flagged for a penalty. The Packers can expect to receive a fourth-round compensatory pick in the 2022 NFL Draft for losing him.

>>Wisconsin Women’s Hockey Takes On Providence In NCAA Quarterfinals Game

(Erie, PA)  —  The Wisconsin women’s hockey team will meet Providence this (Tuesday) afternoon at 1:00 p-m in Erie, Pennsylvania.  The Badgers are going for their sixth national title.  Wisconsin qualified for the NCAA Tournament by beating Ohio State 3-2 in overtime in the WCHA title game.  That was the Badgers’ ninth WCHA tournament championship.  Providence is the opponent in an NCAA Tournament game for the first time, although Wisconsin has lost only once in eight previous meetings with the Friars in regular-season contests.  The Badgers swept Providence to open the season five years ago.  Eight consecutive appearances in the NCAA Tournament by Wisconsin is the nation’s longest active streak.
