LIVE BLOG: Wisconsin vs. Indiana

first_imgWelcome to the Herald Sports live blog! I’m Mike Fiammetta, and I’m here at the Kohl Center with Herald Sports editor Elliot Hughes.We’re set for what’s sure to be a fantastic night of hoops as the No. 25 Badgers (16-5, 5-3) are set to host the No. 16 Indiana Hoosiers (16-4, 4-4) in a conference battle with plenty at stake in the Big Ten race.Wisconsin is coming off a strong performance on the road Sunday that resulted in a 67-63 win over Illinois. Point guard Jordan Taylor continued his stellar play of late, dropping 19 points while pulling down nine rebounds and dishing out five assists. Taylor’s improved play since the non-confernese season and early Big Ten play has been vital to the Badgers, who are now riding a 4-game win streak.Indiana, meanwhle, has seen its fortunes fade in January, where the Hoosiers are 3-3. Despite losing three of their last four games, the Hoosiers do have a tendency to be somewhat tricky on the road. IU is 3-3 on the road this season, though the Badgers have, as usual, been hard to beat here at the Kohl Center. Despite losing two games at home earlier this season, Wisconsin has rebounded with a 10-3 home record.Tonight’s matchup will be a a battle of clashing strengths, as Wisconsin boasts the Big Ten’s (and the nation’s, at that) stingiest scoring defense at 49.6 points allowed per game. Indiana, meanwhile, is the conference’s top scoring offense (No. 15 in the country) at 79.8 points per game.Anyway, thanks for joining us on the live blog below (we’ll also be on Twitter @BHeraldSports) and have a great Thursday night.<a href=”” >Wisconsin vs. Indiana</a>last_img read more

Selfdefense class raises funds for acid attack victim

first_imgBethany Storro’s parents, Nancy and Joe Neuwelt, after cancelling a planned appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show, attended a women’s self-defense class at Anytime Fitness at Esther Short Park on Friday evening — a fundraiser the club’s operators organized to help pay costs from Storro’s facial burns.Storro, 28, was found suffering from acid burns to her face about 7:15 p.m. on Aug. 30, on Columbia Street just north of West Eighth Street and the park. She told rescuers and police that a woman she didn’t know walked up to her and threw acid in her face.As Vancouver police officers and Major Crimes Unit detectives began their investigation of the alleged attack, Storro was treated for facial injuries at the Oregon Burn Center at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland. She and her family held press conferences at the hospital and Storro later was released.Outside the fitness club Friday evening, the Neuwelts stood before news cameras before the class and thanked a long list of people and businesses that helped raise money for Storro’s medical treatments.“I just want to say ‘thank you’ to the community,” Nancy Neuwelt said. “It’s been incredible.”As for Storro, her mother said, “She’s doing better and she’s amazing. I took her out for a little bit today. We went to get a coffee and get out in the fresh air. She’s doing better, and people were coming up and just encouraging her.”last_img read more
