The University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team (13-18-1, 6-15-1-1 Big Ten) will battle the No. 10 ranked team in the country this weekend as the Badgers travel to Columbus to take on the Ohio State University Buckeyes (18-10-4, 11-8-3).Coming off a weekend full of some of their best hockey of the season, the Badgers look to keep the streak going against the Buckeyes. The Badgers dominated in their matchup against Arizona State last weekend, scoring a total of 13 goals through the two game series. If the team is able to stay hot, the Buckeyes could be in a lot of trouble.Men’s Hockey: Badgers capture key sweep of No. 9 Arizona State in final home series of seasonThe University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team (13-18-1, 6-15-1-1 Big Ten) took on the Arizona State University Sun Devils (22-11-3) Read…The Buckeyes are also coming off a series sweep, winning both road games against the Michigan State University Spartans. The team is currently tied for second in the Big Ten with Minnesota with both teams just four points behind Penn State. This effectively makes this weekend’s series at the Kohl Center crucial for the Buckeyes’ push towards first place as the season draws to a close.The two teams faced off earlier this season in Madison, splitting the series with a win each. All time, the Badgers have a winning record against the Buckeyes at 19-17-3. The Badgers look to continue their offensive dominance this weekend, especially with help from sophomore Roman Ahcan who scored four goals last weekend including a hat trick in the first game of the series Friday. Ahcan is now second on the team in both scoring and points with 14 goals and 25 points — just behind star freshman Cole Caufield.Men’s Hockey: Experience gained this season cannot be overlookedGoing into the 2019-2020 season, the University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team (10-17-1, 5-14-1-1 Big Ten) faced high expectations from Read…Defensively, the Buckeyes have been strong this season, especially with goalkeeper Tommy Nappier’s impressive junior season campaign. Nappier played in both games last weekend for the Buckeyes, allowing just two goals on 56 shots. This performance included a shutout in the first game of the series vs. the Spartans. He has a save rate of 93% on the season, good for the No. 8 spot in the nation.While defense for the Badgers was not a strong point last Friday, the team stepped it up on Saturday as they allowed just two goals on 32 shots. The Badgers defense needs to be productive this weekend in order to derail the Buckeyes. With the games this weekend being the final regular season series for both teams, they have huge implications on the Buckeyes seeding in the Big Ten tournament. The Badgers have already secured the last place No. 7 seed in the tournament. Yet, with two wins this weekend, the Buckeyes could find themselves at the No.1 seed depending on what happens with the rest of the conference.An axe to grindThe University of Wisconsin and the University of Minnesota have perhaps the most storied rivalry in college sports, as the Read…The first game of the series this weekend will take place Friday at 5:00 p.m. The second game will be played Saturday at 7:00 p.m. Both games can be viewed on the Big Ten Network, as well as listened to on 1310 WIBA.

Seville, Spain | AFP | Lionel Messi rescued Barcelona’s unbeaten season on Saturday as the La Liga leaders scored twice in the last three minutes to snatch a 2-2 draw at Sevilla.Messi came off the bench with his team two goals down at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan as Luis Suarez pulled one back in the 88th minute, before the Argentinian struck the equaliser a minute later.Barcelona had not lost a league game this term, or in 13 months, but finishes from Franco Vazquez and Luis Muriel looked to have sealed Sevilla a stunning victory.But Messi came up trumps again and he celebrated his goal, a bending long-range strike into the bottom corner, by rushing to the jubilant coaching staff and substitutes on the touchline.He had been left out of the starting line-up due to a hamstring complaint, with coach Ernesto Valverde perhaps keeping one eye on Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final against Roma.But he still made the decisive intervention even if Barca’s draw means Atletico Madrid can cut the gap at the top to nine points by beating Deportivo La Coruna at home on Sunday.Sevilla, meanwhile, are still 13 points adrift of the top four, havng played a game more than Valencia, and must recover in time for their own Champions League clash against Bayern Munich on Tuesday.They would have been deserving winners here and, in truth, could have been out of sight had Muriel and Vazquez finished any number of dangerous breaks in the second half.Sevilla were the better side for the opening half an hour and took a deserved lead in the 36th minute when Joaquin Correa shuffled into the area and chipped a cross into Vazquez. He poked a weak finish but it was just enough to beat Marc-Andre ter Stegen.The hosts doubled their lead when Ever Banega’s stinging shot was pushed out too centrally by Ter Stegen, allowing Muriel to take a touch and guide the ball into the corner.Messi came on for Ousmane Dembele just before the hour mark but Sevilla could have been three up, Jesus Navas missing the best chance as his one-on-one was cleared off the line by Gerard Pique.They were made to pay the price as Suarez turned in from close range before the ball rolled tantalisingly out to the left foot of Messi, and he drilled it into the corner. – Bale pushes case –Earlier, Gareth Bale made a strong case for a starting spot against Juventus by scoring twice in Real Madrid’s 3-0 victory over Las Palmas as Cristiano Ronaldo was rested.Bale’s double in Gran Canaria served as a timely reminder to coach Zinedine Zidane, with the trip to Turin for the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals to come on Tuesday.Karim Benzema had doubled Real’s lead before half-time as Los Blancos moved just one point behind second-placed Atletico. Las Palmas stay 18th, seven points adrift of safety.The only worry for Zidane was the sight of Nacho hobbling off in the first half, with what appeared to be a hamstring problem.“Everything is positive except one thing, the injury of Nacho,” Zidane said. “He is not happy. It is a concern but hopefully only little and the rest is all good.”Bale opened the scoring with a trademark run and finish down the left before Benzema converted one penalty and then generously handed over a second, which the Welshman had earned himself.The question now is whether Zidane was suitably impressed to pick Bale in Italy.“We will see on Tuesday, I am happy for his performance,” Zidane said.Girona’s hopes of Europa League qualification took a knock after they were held to a 1-1 draw by struggling Levante. Athletic Bilbao also drew 1-1 at home to Celta Vigo.Share on: WhatsApp
It didn’t seem like much at first – a little numbness in his foot. But in looking back, it marked a turning point in Steven Schultz’s life. Now, as he addresses his own health concerns, Schultz is looking to help others deal with a serious health condition.That numbness that Schultz first experienced in 2009 in his foot, then later his knee in 2009, was later diagnosed as multiple sclerosis, a chronic and potentially debilitating condition. Now Schultz is working to raise money for research for treatment and an eventual cure and to heighten public awareness and education about the severe condition.Schultz, an Interlaken resident who is member of the Board of Trustees for the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, has worked with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, New Jersey Metro Chapter, to establish the fundraiser MS Rock For A Cure, a June 13 event at the theater. The event will showcase The Fab Faux, a musical tribute band that performs The Beatles works. According to the organizers, approximately 300 tickets for the concert have been set aside for the fundraiser, at a cost of $400 apiece, that includes the concert, a pre-event cocktail reception and an after-concert reception.“I want to see awareness here,” Schultz said, hoping this event would allow people to realize what this disease means, its effects largely unrealized by the public and that for those who have it, there is hope.He and his wife, Jaime, said they hope the event would raise $300,000 in sponsorship and ticket sales, with proceeds earmarked for research.“The thing about MS is you don’t know how it’ll affect you,” Schultz explained.Multiple sclerosis, or MS as it’s commonly called, is a neurological, inflammatory disorder that affects and damages the insulating covers of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. This condition can prevent parts of the nervous system to communicate, possibly leading to a wide array of physical symptoms and often lead to permanent neurological problems and damage to the body’s immune system. The direct cause is unknown and MS remains incurable, though there are treatments and medications for the approximately 2.3 million sufferers worldwide.“This is a disease that needs to be paid attention to,” Schultz believes.When he first told Jaime about his symptoms, “I said get to the emergency room,” she remembered.Schultz, who works in real estate development, acknowledged that 2009 – during the financial crisis – was a difficult time for him, with the diagnosis compounding the situation. “He spent a couple of months when he didn’t want to get out of bed or go to work,” Jaime said, noting, “He did but he wasn’t really into it.”“I had a little bit of a pity party,” initially, he acknowledged.The key, they found, was finding a doctor, “that was the right fit,” Jaime said.That physician, Saud Sadiq, MD, FAAN, in New York City, drafted “a health regiment that would fit into Steve’s lifestyle,” factoring in things like diet and physical activity along with traditional medical treatments; and that made the difference in his treatment, Jaime said.Since his initial diagnosis and ongoing treatment, “You really turned your life around,” dealing with the disease and just everyday life stresses, Jaime told Steven.He continues to experience various levels of numbness but “it’s all about maintenance,” of the chronic condition and access to proper medical treatment, Schultz noted – at least for now until a cure can be discovered.
