Here is the latest Wisconsin sports news from The Associated Press:
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Gophers are seeking their first win at the home of the Wisconsin Badgers since 1994. Just three weeks ago, it seemed the two teams were on relatively equal footing. Minnesota completed its nonconference schedule undefeated and Wisconsin slogged through September. But the Badgers again enter the game as heavy favorites.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers used their first six draft picks on defense to try to shore up a unit that ranked dead last in yards allowed. Now some of those players are getting some game action. Because of injuries, rookie cornerback Casey Hayward and defensive lineman Mike Daniels are expected to start Sunday against the St. Louis Rams.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Fever have taken a two-to-one lead in the WNBA Finals, and they even set a record in doing it. The Fever beat the Minnesota Lynx 76-59 behind a career-high 30 points from Shavonte Zellous. With two minutes left in the third, the Fever led 70-33 - the largest lead by any team in WNBA Finals history.
CHICAGO (AP) — The Minnesota Timberwolves without Kevin Love were no match for the Chicago Bulls without Derrick Rose. Carlos Boozer had 24 points and nine rebounds to lead the Bulls to a 92-81 victory. It was Minnesota's first exhibition game since Love broke his hand in a training accident. He's expected to miss six to eight weeks.
