Here are the stories:

Chicago’s Mike Dunleavy nailed a three-pointer with just five seconds left, stunning the Milwaukee Bucks 91-90. With 19 seconds to go, a bad inbound pass to Gary Neal ended up in the hands of Chicago’s Joakim Noah. With just 5.8 seconds to go, Dunleavy – a former Buck – hit the go-ahead three. It was also the first lead of the second half for the Bulls. Neal scored a team-high 17 points in the loss, John Henson added 15 points and eight rebounds.

Marquette University athletic director Larry Williams is stepping down. The 50-year-old Williams, a former N-F-L player and lawyer, served two year as A-D. A spokesperson for the University says he is stepping down to pursue other interests. Men’s basketball coach Buzz Williams, often at odds with Williams over stricter team rules, says he was shocked at the announcement. Former athletic director Bill Cords takes over as the interim athletic director until a replacement is named.

Dominique Thompson tied a career-best 19 kills in Wisconsin’s 3-1 match win over Florida State last night (15-15, 23-25, 25-22, 25-15). Ellen Chapman led all players with 20 kills, while the team hit .279 (67 kills, 21 errors and 165 attempts). With the win, the Badgers advance to today’s regional finals against Purdue, who upset host Illinois last night.

Wisconsin-Whitewater is one game away from another Stagg Bowl next Friday, but face an unbeaten Mary Hardin-Baylor team this afternoon in the semifinals. The Warhawks have never lost to the Crusaders in four previous games. The last time these two teams played was in the semifinals in 2008, ending in a Warhawks’ 16-7 win. Kickoff is scheduled for 2:30. Winner advances to the national championship game to face either Mount Union or North Central Illinois.
