Injured Wisconsin point guard Traevon Jackson has returned to practice, though it is still unclear whether the senior will be ready for the start of the NCAA tournament.

Jackson has been out two months after breaking his right foot in a 67-62 loss on Jan. 11 at Rutgers.

Wisconsin (31-3) had a light practice Tuesday, when Jackson participated in shoot-around and individual drills. The top-seeded Badgers play Coastal Carolina on Friday night in their NCAA opener in Omaha.

Jackson said he had been cleared, and that it would be up to him about when he feels ready to play. He said he felt about 90 percent.

Women's grad rates higher than men's

Women competing in this year's NCAA tournament continue to graduate at a higher rate than their male counterparts, according to an annual study released Tuesday.

The report by the Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport shows athletes on teams selected for the women's tournament have a graduation rate of 88 percent, compared with 75 percent for men's tournament teams.
