>>3-Pointers Big For Bucks In 124-113 Win

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Giannis Antetokounmpo hit the three-pointer which put his team up to stay and Khris Middleton was seven-of-eight from long range in Monday’s win at New York.  Shots from outside the arc were a big factor in the third straight win for the Milwaukee Bucks.  The Bucks blew a half-time lead, then powered back for a 124-113 win over the Knicks.  Antetokounmpo finished with 31 points and 15 rebounds, while Middleton scored 30 and Eric Bledsoe dished out 13 assists.  The Bucks take tonight (Tuesday) off, then host the Philadelphia 76ers Wednesday night.


>>Packers Expect Rodgers To Practice Tuesday

(Green Bay, WI)  —  Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy says he expects his starting quarterback to practice today (Tuesday).  Aaron Rodgers has been limiting his practice time since injuring his knee in the first game of the season.  He wants to lose the knee brace he’s been wearing.  McCarthy says he’d like to see that piece of equipment gone when his team plays the Rams, too, but that is a decision for the medical staff.  Rodgers has piled up some impressive statistics while slowed by the sore knee, but an improved ability to move around would be a big help.


>>Badgers Women Top Hockey Poll

(Madison, WI)  —  The Wisconsin women’s hockey team is back at the top of the college hockey poll this week.  The Badgers swept Princeton while top-ranked Clarkson split a weekend series with St. Lawrence, knocking the Golden Knights out of the number-one spot.  Wisconsin held on to the top spot in the poll for 18 straight weeks last season.  This makes five straight seasons that the Badgers have spent at least some time ranked number-one in the country.


>>Badgers Football Hopes To Keep Forcing Turnovers

(Madison, WI)  —  The snow helped, but the Wisconsin Badgers defense can feel good about forcing five first-half turnovers in the 49-20 win over Illinois.  The Badgers are missing several starters with injuries in the middle of the season.  The forced turnovers take some of the pressure off less-experienced players.  Wisconsin is still right in the middle of the race for the West Division championship.  The Badgers bring a 3-1 conference record into Saturday’s game at Northwestern, while the Wildcats are 4-1.  Iowa and Purdue are tied with Wisconsin.
