Hilary Knight poses in ESPN Magazine Body Issue


Former Wisconsin women's hockey star and current Team USA forward Hilary Knight is featured in the latest annual ESPN The Magazine Body Issue, which hit stands this week. No NHL players are repped, which makes Knight hockey's lone representative. She, like the other athletes featured, is posing nude, so you might want to keep this off your work computer. Still, the feature on her is well worth your time -- she uses the spotlight to promote the women's game and spread a few valuable messages. I noticed that if I'm 185 pounds or more [as I was for the Olympics], I get this crazy power-forward mentality and no one can stop me. I definitely still felt feminine at 185. I just jumped right in and took hold of being proud and happy with being a female athlete.

Alleged victim testifies in Dominic Cizauskas trial


The alleged victim in the Dominic Cizauskas trial testified Wednesday morning, and the trial is expected to be turned over to the jury for deliberation later today. Cizauskas is on trial for allegations of third-degree sexual assault, which allegedly occurred while on campus for his official visit in December. The 2014 Mukwonago High School linebacker was named Wisconsin Football Coaches Association Defensive Player of the Year in 2013. He verbally committed to Wisconsin on June 19, but never signed a National Letter of Intent. Wisconsin has not been able to comment on the situation because the NCAA forbids schools from discussing recruits who have not signed a LOI.

X'zavien Ausborne plans to run track, play football at Wisconsin


This link is unfortunately paywalled, but you can get the gist of the story from the headline. Together with fellow South Oak Cliff (Dallas) cornerback Takadrae Williams, Ausborne's commitment gives the Badgers new inroads into Texas that have generated even more momentum on the recruiting front. The duo committed to UW on Friday.

Previewing Wisconsin with Lake The Posts


Lake The Posts is a fine Northwestern blog, and Jay Sharman there asked me to breakdown this season's upcoming matchup in Evanston and what else might be in store for Wisconsin in 2014. This also officially ushers in Q&A season -- the season's almost here, friends.

Judge to allow evidence in Dominic Cizauskas sexual assault case


We hope to have a more in-depth look at this case later in the week, but this news has been around for a few days now. Last week, a Dane County judge denied a motion to suppress evidence from a sexual assault exam in the case against Dominic Cizauskas, a linebacker from Mukwonago who committed to UW but never signed his Letter of Intent. Cizauskas allegedly sexually assaulted a female student in a UW dorm room in December and has been charged with third-degree sexual assault. His legal team argued the sexual assault exam should be thrown out because the victim reportedly had sexual contact with her boyfriend before the alleged assault. A hearing has been scheduled for June 9 and a trial is scheduled to start June 16.

NFL Draft 2014: Chris Borland reportedly off one team's board


Well this is a bummer, if true. Borland's shoulder issues were well known while he was in Madison, though they seemed nothing more lingering than here and there. Hopefully Borland settles into a nice situation in the NFL.
