Larry G. Denham

first_imgLarry G. Denham, 71, of Brookville, was born on May 7, 1948 in Batesville, and died on Monday, March 30, 2020. He was the son of the late Grover and Edith (Jones) Denham. Larry is survived by his wife of 52 years, Bonnie Faye Denham (Brandenburg); six siblings: Jeanette, Ronald, Sandy, Beverley, Wayne, and Patty; three children: Lisa (Clyde) Gordon of Owentown, KY, Buddy Denham of Brookville, IN, and Angela (Kenneth) Cox of Laurel, IN; twelve grandchildren: Kristi, Andrew, Kati, Ashley, Woody, Natasha, Hannah, Derick, Damon, Kenneth II, David, and Shayna; and twelve great-grandchildren: Trey, Zayden, Bryson, Paisley, Ziah, Bailey, Keegan, Nelly, Otto, Cooper, Hudson, and Edith.Larry and Bonnie enjoyed many vacations all over but their favorites were the mountains of Tennessee and Myrtle Beach with their children and especially their oldest grandchildren. Larry enjoyed his Monday night rides with the Brokeass Bikers and taking pictures of everything and anything, mainly of his family and friends. Through his many motorcycle adventures he traveled to 49 of the 50 states and across Canada. The only reason why he didn’t ride the 50th state is he couldn’t physically drive there. In the summer when he wasn’t on his Harley, he was poolside with the ones that he loved the most, his wife, his children and grandchildren.Arrangements to celebrate Larry’s life will be held at a later date.

Cook Rosenberger Funeral Home Staff assisted the family with the arrangements and are honored to serve Larry’s family.last_img read more

UW looks to keep winning at NCAAs

first_imgCourtesy of UW AthleticsAfter dropping only eight matches throughout the season — three in Big Ten play — the Wisconsin men’s tennis team finished its regular season strong at the No. 27 spot nationally.And it keeps getting better.Improving to 7-3 in Big Ten play from 4-6 in 2009, the Badgers showed the Big Ten they were a force to be reckoned with.Closing out its regular season only a few weeks ago, Wisconsin battled Ohio State in its most anticipated match of the season.“I think it’s definitely one of those matches everybody looks forward to,” head coach Greg Van Emburgh said before the match. “They’re the team to beat. They’re one of the top teams in the country, and they’ve won the Big Ten the last five years now. I think it’s the only team we haven’t beaten since my tenure here.“I think for most of the guys that have been here since I’ve been here, you know, they’re anxious to try and get a win over OSU.”Although the Badgers dropped the match 4-3, they forced it down to the final match point. It came down to senior Moritz Baumann in a three-set nail-biter, who was just unable to find the strength to finish out the match after falling behind 3-4 in the last set.Despite the disappointment, there were still some points of optimism.“It doesn’t feel like a really bad loss because they are No. 4 in the country,” sophomore Patrick Pohlmann said after the loss. “I think its pretty good for us that we were so close to them — it was just one match that decided it. It just shows that we are right there with the teams and we can hang with them.”The Buckeyes were the Badgers’ highest-ranked opponent all season, and despite the loss, the Badgers fought to 10 wins out of the 15 ranked opponents they faced this season. The most notable win was a 4-3 upset over then-No. 13 Florida State.With a successful regular season record and a tight match against OSU, UW was feeling confident heading into the Big Ten tournament.Earning a No. 4 seed, the Badgers had a first round bye before facing off against Minnesota. Only two weeks prior to the match, the Badgers downed the Golden Gophers 5-2.While they knew they could beat the Golden Gophers, the Badgers were not going to overlook anything.“Minnesota’s a great team,” Van Emburgh said at a press conference prior to the tournament. “We want to make sure we’re ready for them. We’re definitely not looking past them, and I believe we’ll have another shot at Ohio State if we get through into the semis there.”After shutting out Minnesota 4-0 in the quarterfinal round of the tournament, Wisconsin got a second shot at Ohio State. Instead of the intense match UW fought for in the regular season, OSU shut out the team, 4-0.Despite a disappointing end to their Big Ten tournament run, the Badgers aren’t calling it quits just yet. Sitting strong at No. 27 in the nation, the Badgers earned a spot in the NCAA championships for the fourth year in a row.In the 64-team field, Wisconsin will face off against Notre Dame in the first round. During the regular season, the Badgers fell 4-3 to the Fighting Irish.After winning the doubles point in the Feb. 28 match, the Badgers went 2-3 in singles, bringing the decision down to the last match point. With the Badgers’ hopes resting on his shoulders, Pohlmann fought Notre Dame’s Daniel Stahl into the third set where he was unable to claim the win for Wisconsin.Although the match didn’t go in UW’s favor, Notre Dame now sits behind Wisconsin at No. 38 with a 15-12 record.Yet, while the Badgers may have a better squad on paper at this point in the season, they know they can’t overlook anyone, especially a team they’ve previously lost to.“I think the one thing we’ve really done well is we’ve never overlooked anybody,” Van Emburgh said. “I think this group has done a really good job with that.”last_img read more

UW looks to rebound at LaBahn

first_imgJunior goaltender Alex Rigsby surrendered three goals in the two losses to Minnesota-Duluth.[/media-credit]The Badgers’ offense was nowhere to be found last weekend, as the Wisconsin women’s hockey team not only suffered their first two defeats of the season, but were shutout twice on the road against Minnesota-Duluth at AMSOIL Arena.The 2-0 and 1-0 defeats marked the first time since 2001 that the Badgers (3-2-1, 1-2-1 WCHA) have not managed a single score in back-to-back games. The series also marked the end of a six-game road trip for Wisconsin, one which included games against Minnesota State and Lindenwood.“The toughest thing in our business is to score goals,” head coach Mark Johnson said at his weekly press conference. “We were unfortunate this weekend to come away empty-handed both nights. … Their goalie was good, and we didn’t capitalize on a lot of opportunities, especially on the powerplay.”What the Badgers did get in Duluth were several difficult breaks. In Friday’s game, the Bulldogs’ (2-2, 2-2) first goal came off a botched clear that left an open net for UMD forward Brienna Gillanders. The second goal came after a solid poke check from Wisconsin’s goaltender, Alex Rigsby, which sent the puck behind her into the Badgers’ net. Saturday’s 1-0 defeat was equally disappointing, as UW failed to find a breakthrough despite multiple chances and 25 shots on goal.As Johnson pointed out, the other problem for the Badgers was the lack of scoring on powerplays. While the defense looked impressive, thwarting all eight UMD powerplays, the Wisconsin offense was another story. On Friday, the powerplay unit went 0-for-5, as Bulldogs’ goaltender Kayla Black turned aside all 31 shots. Saturday’s effort was similar as the Badgers yet again failed to capitalize, finishing 0-for-3 on powerplays. Despite their first two losses of the season, UW’s head coach said his team is not panicking.“Everything’s pretty upbeat; everything’s pretty positive,” Johnson said. “The team has played pretty well. Unfortunately, we just came away this past weekend with not scoring the goals we needed to win hockey games.”Instead, they are looking forward to their home opener and the first game ever played at LaBahn Arena. The puck will drop in the brand new 2,400-seat arena Friday at 7 p.m. against Bemidji State, and game two of the series will take place Sunday at 2 p.m.Located directly behind the Kohl Center, LaBahn Arena is a sign of the growth of the Wisconsin women’s hockey program over the last decade. The program has won four national titles since 2006 and also has six Frozen Four appearances over that period.In regard to the new arena and the home opener, Johnson had only high praise.“The future is bright for the young athletes to get a chance to work out of the facility,” he said. “There’s so many wonderful things about it. Now we get to open it up Friday night. It will be a special week. It will be a special night for the hockey program.”Some wonder how long it will take to make LaBahn feel like home for the team, as the Badgers posted a 19-2 record at the Kohl Center last year. Johnson noted that the team is beginning to adjust to its new home.The more we play, obviously, the more comfortable we’ll be,” Johnson said. “But our players, after spending a couple of weeks in the locker room, spending a couple of weeks practicing, those things are starting to come.”The Badgers will look to start turning their new house into a home against a Bemidji State team they beat in all four games last year, and currently sits at the bottom of the conference with a 1-3 overall record. However, there is no guarantee Friday’s game will end with a comfortable victory, as the Badgers only escaped the last meeting with a one-goal victory.But it may take until the first puck drop Friday night for Johnson to fully absorb the changing face of his program. “I had to pinch myself this morning as I drove down to work,” he said. “It’s a reality. It hasn’t really hit me yet.”That’s understandable since the women’s hockey team has called the Kohl Center home since 1998, sharing the venue with the men’s hockey team and both the men’s and women’s basketball teams.Once the game begins, Johnson believes that the “pinch myself” mindset will be gone and “reality will be with us Friday night.”And if they want to open their new arena on a positive note, the Badgers will be needing some goals as well.last_img read more

(AP Photo/David Dermer)ExpandCLEVELAND — The Clippers’ latest victory in a torrid March came the hard way.While happy to leave town on a high note, Coach Doc Rivers knew his team caught a break Friday night in a 110-108 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers that was in doubt until Jordan Clarkson’s 3-point attempt from the top of the key hit off the back rim as time ran out.“We were supposed to foul on that last play, but didn’t,” Rivers said. “And we just got lucky they missed the shot.”Danilo Gallinari led the Clippers with 27 points. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 16, while Lou Williams added 15 for the Clippers, who are 9-1 this month and closing in on securing a playoff spot in the Western Conference. Beverley missed a 3-point attempt, but the Clippers grabbed the rebound and Landry Shamet made one of two free throws with 13 seconds to play.Love scored in the lane with 10 seconds left to cut the lead to one before Beverley’s free throw.The Clippers didn’t lead until early in the third. Beverley’s tip-in midway through the period broke a 73-all tie.The Clippers play their next three games on the road, including a meeting with Milwaukee, which has the league’s best record.“We treat every game as a business trip,” Beverley said. “You can have fun in the summertime. Right now, we’re going for the highest seed we can get.”Cleveland scored 40 points in the first quarter. The Cavaliers had won four straight at home, including victories over Detroit and Milwaukee. The Pistons were playing without Blake Griffin, while Giannis Antetokounmpo sat out for the Bucks.Sexton had scored more than 23 points in seven straight games, surpassing a mark for rookies last accomplished by Tim Duncan in 1998.TIP-INSClippers: Gallinari scored 11 of the team’s 24 points in the first quarter. … Montrezl Harrell took an elbow in the face from Sexton in the first quarter, but remained in the game and scored 14 points. … Shamet had 15 points.Cavaliers: Guard Matthew Dellavedova missed his eighth straight game with a concussion. … Nance, who missed five games with a bruised rib before returning Wednesday, was hit in the chest taking a charge in the second quarter.COACHING LOOPRivers has kept in contact with Tyronn Lue, who was fired as Cavs head coach on Oct. 28. Lue, an assistant on Rivers’ staff in Boston, has attended a few Clippers practices.“He wants to get back in and he deserves to be back in,” Rivers said. “He’s feeling great. He wouldn’t tell you this, but maybe this happened at the perfect time for his health.”Lue missed several games last season because he wasn’t feeling well. He coached Cleveland to the NBA title in 2016 and three straight NBA Finals appearances.ZOT!
