Antetokounmpo produced his fifth triple-double of the season with 33 points, 19 rebounds and 11 assists. Malcolm Brogdon added 17 points and Khris Middleton had 15.

>>UW Athletic Department Asks For 11% Bump In Spending Authority (Madison, WI) — The University of Wisconsin athletic department will ask the Board of Regents for almost 160-million dollars in spending authority at Friday’s meeting. That represents an increase of 11-percent. The big jump is mostly due to the 20-million dollars needed for three major capital projects — completion of the Nicholas Recreation Center, renovations at the Kohl Center and Camp Randall Stadium, and work planned for the U-W Fieldhouse.

>>Brewers Open “Wisconsin Resident-Only” Ticket Presale For Cubs Games (Milwaukee, WI) — The Brewers open the “Wisconsin resident-only” presale of tickets for all 10 games against the Cubs in Milwaukee during the 2019 season.

The presale begins today (Thursday) at 9:00 A-M and the buyer’s account has to be able to be tracked to a legitimate address inside the Wisconsin state boundaries. Cubs fans will still be able to buy any tickets not sold during the presale.

The bill was approved Wednesday. Democrats said ignoring the Milwaukee native who is active on social issues puts them on the “wrong side of history.” Kaepernick has been fiercely criticized for kneeling during the national anthem starting in 2016.
