Hero Sports Talks Milwaukee's Hot Start

With the 7-1 start to the season, it's hard not to take not of Milwaukee women's basketball this season. That's exactly what Hero Sports' author Alan Dale says in his piece featuring the Panthers' hot start and their matchup Sunday against Northwestern.

Dale writes: "What a start for the University of Milwaukee Panthers.

"A year removed from a solid 19-13 season, the Panthers’ women’s basketball team has exploded into the new campaign with a 7-1 record thanks to a current six-game winning streak heading into Sunday’s big game against the Big Ten’s Northwestern

"Sure, keeping the streak going will be a test, but for these Panthers that may be one they pass again."

Panther Freshman Sits Down With espnW

Freshman women's basketball player Jaye Two Bears is a long way from home (Cannon Ball, N.D.), but she is still making her presence felt all the way from Milwaukee.

The 5-foot-10 guard is a member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe - the same tribe that has been in the news of late with their opposition with the proposed Dakota Access Pipeline.

Two Bears has used her platform right from the start to help gain attention and understanding of the situation, joining Wisconsin men's basketball player Bronson Koenig and Nevada women's basketball player Morning Rose Tobey in putting on a basketball camp for area youth back in North Dakota earlier this year.

Now, espnW writer Walter Villa sat down with Two Bears to help further her story and stance on what is going on in her hometown.

"Two-Sport Steph"

Milwaukee sophomore Steph Kostowicz garnered lots of attention during the women's basketball season; and rightfully so! The Franklin, Wis. native helped lead the Panthers to their best season in 10 years, being named First Team All-Horizon League along the way.

But, while the basketball season has been finished for a little over a month now, Kostowicz hasn't slowed down. That's because she's now turned her attention to track & field, where she excels in throwing events for the Black & Gold.

Fox 6's Tim Van Vooren caught up with the busy Kostowicz earlier this week to see just how she is able to do it all.

Pozolinski Breaking High Jump Records

Milwaukee senior Brett Pozolinski has quickly made quite the name for himself. While he's been a
notable high jumper for the Black & Gold the past 3-plus years, Pozolinski has taken his game to the next level in his last collegiate season.

The senior from Kimberly, Wis. has broken both school records in high jump and posted the team's best ever finish at the NCAA Indoor Track & Field National Championships earlier this year, being named First Team All-American after finishing fifth in his event.

Time Warner Cable's JP Cadorin caught up with Pozolinski and his talented coach, Garrett Huyler, at practice last week to talk about what has made this season so successful. Check out the complete interview here:

Koss Doesn't Let Deafness Slow Him Down

Don't try to adjust the volume. When the Horizon League Network met with Taylor Koss earlier this year, they wanted to try to tell his story in a unique way - just as he would hear it.

Koss - a senior on the Milwaukee track & field team - is deaf. But that hasn't slowed down anything. Well, except how he almost missed out on a chance to join the team.

Lindner, Roenneburg Helping Rebuild Panther Program

The Milwaukee women's basketball team has had loads of success this season, and they certainly wouldn't have gotten where they are with out two underclassmen from Northwestern Wisconsin.

Sophomore Jenny Lindner and freshman Emma Roenneburg have both played big roles for Milwaukee over the season and ready for the start of the Horizon League Tournament with the semifinal on Saturday.

With Lindner and Roenneburg hailing from the same part of the state, their local paper recently caught up with the hometown heros heading into Saturday's big game up in Green Bay.

"But another program is quietly ascending as two local players, Neillsville native Jenny Lindner and Adams-Friendship graduate Emma Roenneburg, have helped the Panthers to their best season in a decade," writes Mitch Skurzewski of the Marshfield News Herald.

Skurzewski talked to the two young Panthers and head coach Kyle Rechlicz about a variety of topics, including playing AAU ball together, recruiting and what it's been like moving to a big campus in a bigger city.

Vote For Jenny!

Last week was a big one for Panther basketball player Jenny Lindner. The Neillsville native was named Horizon League Player of the Week after a career week on the court. Now, Lindner has the chance to earn even more hardware, but she needs your help. has their weekly list of the top performances in college from the previous week and Lindner is on the list.

Fans can vote for Lindner as one of the 10 candidates for the weekly award.

Lindner was huge for Milwaukee last week, netting a career-high 32 points - including 16 in the final quarter - to help spark UWM past Oakland in a 98-95 thriller. She was also big on the defensive end, grabbing six rebounds and nabbing three steals. All of that was part of Milwaukee's clinching win that locked up the No. 2 seed in this weekend's Horizon League Tournament in Green Bay.

Knock Knock...

It was quite the night for the Milwaukee women's basketball team.

The Panthers took down Oakland, 98-95, to clinch the No. 2 seed in next week's Horizon League Tournament.

Not only that, but as Jeff Miller writes in his latest article on Wisconsin's hottest team, the Panthers are in prime position for their first postseason berth since 2005-06 team made it all the way to the NCAA Tournament.

Miller writes, "Like I’ve said before, and will continue to say these ladies are firing on ALL CYLINDERS right now. Take for example the game that both Steph Kostowicz, and Jenny Lindner had Thursday night. Both went off for 32 points, Lindner’s a career high, and Kotowicz set a record going 13 of 14 shooting 92.9% from the field. It was the first time since UWM Women have been in Division I that two players collected 30+ points in the same game.

One Down...Two To Go

"One down...two to go."

That was the title of Jeff Miller's latest article about the Milwaukee women's basketball team after the Panthers collected yet another huge win on Saturday, taking down Wright State, 68-57, in a battle for second place in the Horizon League.

UWM now holds sole possession of second place with just two games left in the regular season.

As Miller notes, if Milwaukee can secure the No. 2 seed, they get not only a double bye in the Horizon League Tournament, but also an automatic bid into the WNIT.

Add's Miller, "Right now, Rechlicz’s team is hitting on all cylinders, and seem to be peaking at the right time. The win Saturday extended their overall record to 17-10, and  11-5 in the Conference, and “rocking” a 4 game winning streak."

Panthers Primed For Saturday's Big Game

After last night's 78-71 win over Northern Kentucky, the Milwaukee women's basketball team continued their push toward the Horizon League Tournament.

UWM increased its chances for earning the No. 2 seed in the tournament with that win, something not lost on producer/host and sports correspondent for The Big 920 - WOKY/Newstalk 1130 - WISN in Milwaukee.

Write's Miller, "This Saturday afternoon at the Klotsche Center on the UWM campus the Women’s basketball team will be playing in their program’s biggest game in a decade."

The game Miller is referring to is the matchup between Milwaukee and Wright State - the two teams currently tied for second place in the league standings with 10-5 conference records.

Women's Basketball Garnering More Media Attention

Jeff Miller
The Milwaukee women's basketball team has drawn quite a bit of interest this season, and for good reason.

The latest comes from the pen of Jeff Miller - producer, host and sports correspondent at The Big 920 - WOKY/Newstalk 1130 - WISN in Milwaukee.

Miller - who produces some of the Panther radio broadcasts - notes there are a variety of reasons this could prove to be quite the special season for the Panthers.

He writes: "Head Coach Kyle Rechlicz now fully ensconced in her fourth year, is on the verge of taking the Women’s program to a place they haven’t been  in a decade…to a post season tournament (other than the Horizon League)."
