>>Bucks Surprise Everyone, Dominate 2-Time Defending NBA Champion

(Oakland, CA)  —  The Milwaukee Bucks not only whipped the two-time defending N-B-A champion Golden State Warriors on their home court, they did it in convincing fashion Thursday night.  Led by forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Bucks beat the Warriors on offense and defense in a surprising 134-111 performance.  Eric Bledsoe led Milwaukee scoring with 26 points, while Antetokounmpo scored 24, took down nine rebounds and handed out four assists.  Sharp-shooter Stephen Curry left the game with an injury during the third period after suffering through a rare bad-shooting night.  Milwaukee stays on the West Coast to play at the Staples Center against the Los Angeles Clippers Saturday.

 

>>Badgers Lose Senior NT Sagapolu For Season

(Madison, WI)  —  An injury to his right arm has ended the college career of Wisconsin Badger nose tackle Olive Sagapolu.  He was hurt in the loss at Northwestern and had surgery Wednesday.  Freshman Bryson Williams has replaced the senior in the lineup and is expected to start again Saturday at Penn State.  Sagapolu finishes the season with 23 tackles, four-and-a-half tackles for loss and two sacks.  He played 44 games for the Badgers during his career.

 

>>QB Rodgers Talent Not Fading, But Completing Percentage Has Been

(Green Bay, WI)  —  Coaches blame a combination of factors for Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ completion percentage taking a dive.  The future Hall of Famer ranks 28th in the N-F-L completing a career-low 60-point-six percent of his passes.  In four of Green Bay’s eight games, he has completed 60 percent or less.  That compares with his career mark of more than 65 percent.  Offensive coordinator Joe Philbin says there are no issues with the quarterback’s mechanics or physical limitations due to the knee injury.

 

>>Brewers OF Christian Yelich Wins 2nd Silver Slugger Award

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich has earned the second Silver Slugger award of his career.  He already won the Hank Aaron Award for being the best National League offensive player.  Yelich won the league’s battle title and had the best slugging percentage and O-P-S in both leagues.  Yelich is the first Milwaukee player to win a Silver Slugger since Ryan Braun six years ago.  He is expected to be named the National League Most Valuable Player next week.
