Ted Thompson, former Packers general manager (⬆ UP)
Although Thompson moved from the general manager office to a new role this season, his name will be engraved in Green Bay history. Thompson will be inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in May 2019 to honor his 13-year (and counting) career with the organization. He served as the general manager from 2005 and guided the Pack to a Super Bowl XLV win and five division titles. Thompson was responsible for drafting the likes of stars Aaron Rodgers, David Bakhtiari, Clay Matthews and Davante Adams, and he also signed Charles Woodson and Julius Peppers in free agency.
Ethan Happ, Badgers forward (⬆ UP)
Happ “messed around and got a triple-double,” as Ice Cube masterfully rapped about in the early 1990s. The senior forward registered 10 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists for the Badgers’ second triple-double in program history -- and first since Josh Gasser in 2011 -- in the season-opening win over Coppin State on Tuesday night.
Milwaukee Bucks’ shooting (⬆ UP)
In a 144-109 victory over Sacramento over the weekend, Milwaukee cashed in a franchise-record 22 3-pointers, shattering the previous record of 19. And everyone contributed. Eleven different players sunk a 3-pointer, led by three apiece for Khris Middleton, Ersan Ilyasova, Tony Snell and Pat Connaughton. Malcolm Brogdon, Brook Lopez and John Henson all splashed a pair of 3s, while Giannis Antetokounmpo, Eric Bledsoe, Donte DiVincenzo and Thon Maker sunk one each. Let it fly.
Alex Hornibrook, Badgers quarterback (⬇ DOWN)
After missing the loss at Northwestern due to a concussion, Hornibrook started Saturday against Rutgers. He didn’t last long. Unfortunately, the junior quarterback suffered another head injury late in the first half and exited the game. The box score wasn’t pretty either, as Hornibrook threw for 92 yards and two interceptions on 7-of-16 passing. His status for this weekend’s game at Penn State is in doubt, meaning Jack Coan could see his second career start.
Antonio Morrison, Packers linebacker (⬆ UP)
Antonio Morrison came out of nowhere against New England. Playing in a season-high 31 snaps, the linebacker tallied eight tackles and his first career sack, a big one on Tom Brady to stop the Patriots on third down. Green Bay traded for Morrison in late August, and by early returns, it looks like they certainly won the transaction. The Packers sent cornerback Lenzy Pipkins to Indianapolis. Pipkins went on to start one game for the Colts before being claimed off waivers by Detroit in early October. Advantage Gutekunst.
D’Mitrik Trice, Badgers guard (⬆ UP)
Trice was Wisconsin’s best player off the bench as a freshman in 2016-17, but his sophomore season was cut short after he suffered a foot injury 10 games in. He returned in a big way Tuesday night, however, leading the Badgers with a career-best 21 points in an 85-63 victory, splashing five 3-pointers in the process.
