>>Greek Freak’s Triple-Double Keeps Bucks Undefeated

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Only five N-B-A teams still haven’t lost a game and the Milwaukee Bucks are one of them.  Giannis Antetokounmpo’s triple-double led the Bucks to a 123-108 home victory over Philadelphia Wednesday.  Atetokounmpo put up 32 points, 18 rebounds and 10 assists to dominate the stat sheet, but Khris Middleton chipped in 25 and Brook Lopez had 21.  The Bucks fell behind early but rode a 49-point second quarter to their third victory in three games.  Milwaukee plays at Minnesota Friday night.


>>Badger Defenders Healing, But It May Take More Time

(Madison, WI)  —  The injury-plagued Wisconsin Badger defense gets one starter back, but it may take more time to return to full strength.  Cornerback Faion Hicks is expected to play Saturday against the Northwestern Wildcats.  The status of safeties D’Cota Dixon, Scott Nelson and Reggie Pearson may not be clear until game day.  It’s possible Eric Burrell and Evan Bondoc will be paired at safety again Saturday.  Bondoc made the most of his first career start by intercepting a pass, forcing a fumble and recording one-and-a-half tackles for loss against Illinois.


>>Rodgers:  Toughest 5-Game Stretch Of Career

(Green Bay, WI)  —  Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers can’t remember a more challenging stretch of games in his 10-year N-F-L career.  Four of the next five games will be on the road and all of the opponents have winning records except the 3-3 Seattle Seahawks.  The undefeated Los Angeles Rams are coming up this weekend.  Rodgers says he and the Packers will know where they stand when they return home in six weeks.  Three of the opponents — the Rams, Patriots and Vikings — are defending division winners.


>>Brewers Brain Trust Expecting Only “Slight Changes” In Off-Season

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Even though they face some serious decisions in the coming weeks, Milwaukee Brewers team leaders expect only slight changes in the off-season.  Young, talented pitching and a solid batting order make major changes unnecessary for the team which won more games than any other National League squad.  The biggest decisions in the weeks to come will be what to do about second baseman Jonathan Schoop and whether to try to hang on to third baseman Mike Moustakas.

  • Canelo Alvarez a winner, and not only in the ring December 16, 2018
    NEW YORK -- Saturday night was about more than what happened in the ring for Canelo Alvarez.
