>>Badgers Coast Past Coppin State 85-63 In Season Opener

(Madison, WI)  —  D’Mtrik Trice scored 21 points and pre-season All-American Ethan Happ added a triple-double as the Wisconsin Badgers coasted past Coppin State Tuesday night 85-63.  The game at the Kohl Center in Madison was the season opener for both teams.  A 20-2 run by Wisconsin put the game out of reach midway through the first half.  Happ scored 10 points, passed out 12 assists and grabbed 11 rebounds for just the second triple-double in U-W history.  Trice hit five-of-nine 3-pointers.  Wisconsin is idle until next Tuesday when it plays Xavier at the Gavitt Tipoff Games in Cincinnati.


>>Stingy Defense Leads Marquette To 67-42 Win Over UMBC

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Marquette’s stingy defense held the University of Maryland-Baltimore County Golden Retrievers to 22 percent shooting in a 67-42 win in the season opener.  Markus Howard and Sam Hauser scored 15 points each to lead the way in the first game the Golden Eagles have played in the new Fiserv Forum.  Howard chipped in eight rebounds and seven assists.  U-M-B-C surprised the college basketball world last March when it became the first number-16 seed in N-C-A-A tournament history to beat a number-one seed, taking down Virginia 74-54.  Marquette’s next action is a Saturday game at home against Bethune Cookman.


>>Portland’s Sharp-Shooting CJ McCollum Scores 40 In Win Over Bucks

(Portland, OR)  —  A red-hot C-J McCollum connected on 17-of-26 shots in a 40-point explosion as Portland defeated the Milwaukee Bucks Tuesday night 118-103.  It was only the second loss in 10 games for the Bucks.  Giannis Antetokounmpo topped Milwaukee with 23 points and Khris Middleton and Brook Lopez each had 22.  McCollum scored nearly half of his points — 19 — in the third period.  The Bucks remain on the West Coast to play at Golden State Thursday.


>>GM Gutekunst Aggressive While Packers Search For Consistent Winning

(Green Bay, WI)  —  The Green Bay Packers cut safety Jermaine Whitehead Tuesday in the latest of a series of moves to remake the roster in the middle of a 3-4-1 season.  Whitehead is gone at least partially for the swing he took at Patriots center David Andrews during Sunday night’s game.  He’s also off the roster because General Manager Brian Gutekunst saw him as a marginal talent at an important position.  The Packers feel they need someone with true safety ability and better size.  Whitehead joins Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and running back Ty Montgomery on the list of Packer players shown the door in the last two weeks.
