Wisconsin is back in the Sweet 16 for a second straight year, which means one of the best things about the Badgers has returned.
“Moesch Madness” — a video series starring forward Aaron Moesch and guard Matt Ferris — is back. Last year, the pair attempted to recreate Bronson Koenig’s buzzer-beater and did a fantastic Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song parody.
This year? It’s a fun Empire State of Mind video:
And here they are recreating Nigel Hayes’ game-winner over Villanova:

Wisconsin's second couple has put their house in Oconomowoc on the block.
Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and state Rep. Joel Kleefisch are listing their 2,636-square-foot home on Okauchee Lake for $399,900, according to First Weber Realtors.
"They are moving to a more central location within the 38th Assembly District but still with close proximity to the freeway so the lieutenant governor can do her job with aplomb," said Daniel Suhr, chief of staff to Rebecca Kleefisch.
The listing for the house says: "Peaceful backyard, outdoor fireplace, patio with pergola and water feature. Conveniently located close to shopping. Don't miss it!"
Joel Kleefisch, a Republican rep, said the couple recently bought 50 acres, including hunting and tillable land, in the Town of Concord in Jefferson County. He said the lieutenant governor's sister and her husband bought 40 acres of adjoining land where they hope to operate an apiary, a collection of beehives.

As his party's leadership was trying to round up Republican support for a crucial vote on Thursday, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson criticized the GOP's plan for replacing Obamacare.
The plan would reduce subsidies that help lower-income people buy health insurance, but also “expand the entitlement” by giving subsidies to higher-income people “that Obamacare never helped,” Johnson said.
PolitiFact Wisconsin finds Johnson is on target: Compared to Obamacare, the GOP replacement offers reduced tax credits to lower-income people who buy their own health insurance and makes more higher-income people eligible for the credits.

MADISON – Some victims of job discrimination would not be able to recover their legal costs from their bosses under the state budget proposed by Gov. Scott Walker.
Under another budget provision, those who failed to prove they faced workplace discrimination could be forced to pay their employer’s attorney fees.
And in some cases, those who proved they were victims of discrimination would have to pay the legal fees of their bosses if they had rejected a settlement offer that would have been more favorable than the ruling they ultimately received.
Similar rules would be in place for claims brought under the state’s family medical leave law.
Supporters of the budget proposals say they would cut down on frivolous claims, while detractors say it would make people less likely to file worthy complaints because of the costs they might have to bear.

MADISON - Wisconsin's online system for tracking court cases would purge criminal charges from electronic records if they are dismissed or the defendant is acquitted, under new recommendations by an oversight committee.
The recommendations about the Wisconsin Circuit Court Access site were made this week by a panel that is charged with giving guidance to J. Denis Moran, the director of state courts. The changes would affect what the public can see in online court records but not what records are available for viewing in courthouses — those wouldn't change.
The oversight panel is made up of courts officials from around the state along with lawmakers and representatives of law enforcement and the news media. All of the more two dozen members of the panel voted for the recommendations except for the media representatives and an official from the state Department of Justice headed by GOP Attorney General Brad Schimel.
