Hepburn, Badgers win in his emotional homecoming to Nebraska

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) It should have been a day of celebration for Wisconsin freshman Chucky Hepburn.

He returned to his home state to face the Nebraska Cornhuskers on the same court where he played two state high school championship games, and he scored 13 points and made two key steals as the 11th-ranked Badgers won 73-65 on Thursday.

A pall was cast over what should have been a joyous occasion. While his teammates returned to Madison after the game, he went home to Omaha for the funeral for a man the Hepburn family had taken in and was essentially a brother to Chucky.
