Wisconsin survived a late flurry by No. 5 Vandebilt. A 13-3 run gave them a one point lead with 2:25 left in the game, but the Badgers came roaring back.

The Badger women's hockey team defeated Mercyhurst at home in the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament on Saturday night to advance to the Frozen Four in Duluth next weekend. Sadly, just 2,946 fans watched the women win. I'd have killed to be there, but we had a family commitment that we've been signed up for for months. Of course, 2,946 fans saw last night's Wisconsin women's hockey game in Madis...
