Twitter: Former Badger star subject of clever tweet

It was a big day Tuesday for Wisconsin product Devin Harris. The point guard officially rejoined the Dallas Mavericks, agreeing to a three-year, $9 million deal, and consequently was the subject of one of the day’s top sports tweets. You see, the Mavs spent the past few weeks trying to lure Dwight Howard, another free agent with the initials “DH,” to the Metroplex. It didn’t work, of course, as Howard signed with in-state rival Houston. Well, with the signing of this “DH,” Dirk Nowitzki, the face of the Mavs, composed a clever tweet to welcome back the former Badger. We

Dienhart: Just say 'No' to divisions for hoops

At its spring meetings in Chicago, the Big Ten may discuss if it should have divisional play in basketball, as Rutgers and Maryland are set to join the league in 2014 to make the conference a 14-team entity. My advice: The Big Ten should take a lead from the other major conferences—ACC (12 teams), SEC (14), Pac-12 (12), old Big East (15), Atlantic 10 (16)–and not have divisional play. Yes, having divisions would make for some fun races down the stretch, as more teams likely would be jockeying for division championships. But in the SEC’s instance, it had some years
