The native of McFarland, Wis., became something of a social media sensation during the Olympics thanks to his fantastic moustache -- #HamiltonMustacheMilitia -- oh, and of course that gold medal he helped Team USA win for the first time in curling. But, oh, that moustache, which drew comparisons on the internet to Super Mario and Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid. Hamilton is also a fan of the Packers (and vice-versa) and Aaron Rodgers (again, and vice-versa) and drinks beer after matches. Let's face it, he is Wisconsin.

Jabari Parker, Bucks forward (↑ UP)
Parker played over 20 minutes in all three of Milwaukee's games last week -- he had gotten that much playing time just once in his first seven games of the season -- and averaged 15.0 points and 6.0 rebounds. He had 18 and 19 points in his last two games and had a positive box score plus/minus in each contest (a combined +14). Parker also made 16 of 31 shots (51.6 percent), 4 of 6 3-point attempts and 9 of 10 free-throw attempts.
Stephen Vogt, Brewers catcher (↓ DOWN)
Entering spring training, Vogt appeared to have the advantage over Jett Bandy for Milwaukee's backup catcher position as long as he showed some improvement on defense. However, manager Craig Counsell said Wednesday that Vogt will miss 2-to-3 weeks due to a strained throwing shoulder. That puts his return just a week or two before the start of the regular season. Vogt's standing with the club definitely is now in jeopardy.
Brad Davison, Wisconsin guard (↑ UP)
In Wisconsin's regular-season finale against Michigan State, the freshman scored 30 points -- his previous high was 20 back on Dec. 9 vs. Marquette. Davison became just the 12th Badgers player to reach 30 points in a game since the 1996-97 season -- and the 20th time overall over that span -- and the first time at the Kohl Center in just over two years.

Sam Hauser, Marquette guard/forward (↑ UP)
The Golden Eagles' sophomore swingman had quite the week. He averaged 21.0 points and 6.0 rebounds over three games while making 23 of 38 shots (60.5 percent). He actually shot better on 3 attempts than 2s, making 15 of 21 (71.4 percent) from downtown. No surprise, as Hauser is making 52.1 percent of his 3 attempts on the season -- and 51.5 percent of his 2 attempts.

Brian Gutekunst, Packers general manager (↑ UP)
Green Bay was awarded four compensatory draft picks last week, tied for the most of any team, including a fourth-rounder and two picks in the fifth. More for the new man in charge of the draft to play with. At the NFL combine on Wednesday, Gutenkunst also mentioned trying to lock up Aaron Rodgers to a new deal soon. Smart man.
