>>Bucks Stunned By Lowly Phoenix Suns in 114-105 Upset Loss (Phoenix, AZ) — The Milwaukee Bucks blew a fourth-quarter lead and suffered a stunning upset loss in Phoenix Monday 114-105. It’s the first time all season Milwaukee has lost two games in a row. The Bucks led 82-76 after three periods and built a 10-point lead in the fourth before the Suns took over. Phoenix has won two-in-a-row after suffering through a 17-game losing streak. The team with the worst record in the N-B-A has swept the season series from the Bucks. Giannis Antetokounmpo had 21 points and 13 rebounds. The West Coast swing ends with three wins in five games. The Bucks host Indiana Thursday.

>>New Trial Date Set For Badger Football Player Quintez Cephus (Madison, WI) — A judge in Dane County Circuit Court has set July 29th as the date for the sexual assault trial for University of Wisconsin football player Quintez Cephus. Two U-W students say he sexually assaulted them at his apartment last April. Cephus was originally to go on trial last month, but the date was delayed. He maintains the encounter with the two women was consensual. The pending case kept him off the field for the entire 2018 football season.
