Wisconsin Badgers news, 7/7: Sam Arneson, Devin Harris, Brianna Decker, more

David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Monday, folks. How much do you think Sam Arneson will factor into Wisconsin's passing game in 2014?

Football

With a lack of adequate receiving options on the outside, tight end Sam Arneson will be leaned on heavily in Wisconsin's passing game. He's No. 4 on Badger 247's list of x-factors for the upcoming season. Linebacker Derek Landisch checks in at No. 3.

Basketball

Ten-year veteran and former UW baller Devin Harris has signed a three-year deal with the Dallas Mavericks, in which Harris will earn more than $9 million over the entirety of the contract. It's tough to predict the trajectory of any player coming out of high school, except former Marquette High School Paul Noack did just that with the Wisconsin native and Wauwatosa East product.

Jake talked with Brew Hoop about how Ben Brust fits into the Bucks' summer league team rotation.

Hockey

Former UW women's skater Brianna Decker, who recently won a silver medal at the 2014 Winter Olympicswas honored with the Chins Up Foundation's Athletic Impact award. Chins Up is a non-profit organization that aims at pairing college athletes and young kids.

In a jam-packed intrasquad scrimmage, former skater and current Anaheim Ducks prospect Nic Kerdiles tacked on two goals in his team's 6-0 victory, and Director of Player Development Todd Marchant had some kind remarks for the youngster.

"He's been successful at every level he's played, and hopefully he can continue that into next season."

Quick hitters

Happy second birthday, Kielbasa Kings! Scott and Jake celebrate their big day discussing the Brewers' rough last two series, plus Jordan Taylor and Brust teaming up with the Bucks.

Wisconsin-based golf course Erin Hills, tabbed as "a perfect U.S. Open venue," will begin making changes to the terrain ahead of hosting golf's second major in 2017.

Top overall recruit, NCAA championship runner-up. Second-team All-American. Those accolades are impressive enough for Wisconsin women's volleyball setter Lauren Carlini, and she's adding further to her resume with an invitation to practice with the U.S women's national team.
