>>Bucks Return From Break Vowing To Make Playoff Push

(St. Francis, WI)  —  The Milwaukee Bucks are back together after the All Star break, holding their first practice on Wednesday night with a vow to make a big push for the playoffs. Guard Matthew Dellavedova, who played in the last two N-B-A Finals with Cleveland, says the keys are to keep getting better every day and “bring it every night.” The Bucks are 25-30, one game behind Detroit for the eighth and final playoff slot in the Eastern Conference — and they’ll play eight of their next ten games at home starting tomorrow (Friday) night against Utah. Coach Jason Kidd vacationed in Mexico for much of his All Star break — and he says he focused on conditioning, defense, and shooting at Wednesday night’s practice. Kidd says he’ll keep starting rookie Thon Maker at center and try to limit guard Khris Middleton to about 25 minutes per night as he continues to recover from hamstring surgery.

 

>>Badgers Face Ohio State Hoping To Return To Big Ten Lead

(Columbus, OH)  —  The Wisconsin men’s basketball team will try to keep its newfound rhythm on offense going tonight (Thursday) at Ohio State. The 16th ranked Badgers broke out of their six game shooting slump in the second half of last Sunday’s 71-60 home victory against Maryland — and a win against the Buckeyes would put the U-W back into a tie with Purdue for first place in the Big Ten Conference. The Boilermakers are 12-3, with Wisconsin at 11-3 and third place Maryland at 10-5. Redshirt freshman guard Brevin Pritzl has been getting more playing time lately, and coach Greg Gard says he’s learning to do a lot of things on the floor beside shooting. Pritzl — a shooting standout in high school at De Pere — had seven rebounds, seven points, and one assist in 23 minutes against the Terrapins.

 

>>Wisconsin Women Finally Win Two Straight

(Madison, WI)  —  With only one contest left in the regular season, the Wisconsin women have a two game winning streak for the first time, after a 59-55 victory against Illinois on Wednesday night in Madison. It was the third consecutive home win for the Badgers, who started Big Ten play with a ten game losing streak but have now won three of their last five. The U-W only shot 36-percent from the floor but made eleven of 14 from the free throw line as the Badgers maintained a slim lead through most of the fourth quarter. Avyanna Young scored her one-thousandth career point, and Cayla McMorris scored 14 to lead Wisconsin. Alex Wittinger had 19 points, nine rebounds, and five blocked shots for Illinois — which now has the identical records as the U-W at 3-12 in the conference and 8-20 overall.

 

>>D3 Tourneys: River Falls Upset Point In WIAC, NACC Men Begin

(Undated)  —  Third seeded U-W Stevens Point is upset by Number six River Falls in the first round of the W-I-A-C women’s basketball tournament.

In the other opening round game, fourth seeded La Crosse eliminated Number five Eau Claire 69-57 as Sydney Kannel scored 23 for the Eagles. River Falls now plays at top seeded Oshkosh in tomorrow (Friday) night’s semifinals, while La Crosse heads to Number two Whitewater. There were no surprises in the start of the N-A-C-C men’s tourney, as third seeded Concordia Wisconsin topped Number six Dominican 94-67 and fourth seed Wisconsin Lutheran sent fifth seeded Milwaukee Engineering home with a 76-73 win.

 

>>Big Ten, Horizon League Swim Meets Get Started

(Undated)  —  Wisconsin breaks three school records in two events as the Badgers finish the opening night of the Big Ten men’s swim meet in fourth place. The U-W set new team marks in the 200 yard medley relay and the 800 freestyle relay, without winning either event — and Cannon Clifton set a new Badger record in the 200 free with the opening leg of his relay. Four more events are on today’s (Thursday’s) schedule at Columbus, Ohio. At the Horizon League swim meet in Chicago, U-W Milwaukee leads the women’s standings by two points against Youngstown State with Green Bay in third — and Oakland leads the men with Milwaukee fourth and Green Bay sixth. The Milwaukee women set a new meet record in the 200 medley relay as Sara Bentley, Jennifer Kordik, Shelby Rozeboom, and Mandie Siehs clocked in at one minute, 39 and 52 hundredths seconds.

 

>>Other Sports: Brewers, NASCAR, Prep Wrestling, PGA Golf

(Undated)  —  Milwaukee Brewers’ manager Craig Counsell says he will not get serious about building a batting order until after the World Baseball Classic in March when hitters like Jonathan Villar return. The Brewers are gearing up for their first exhibition contests this weekend, starting with a game against U-W Milwaukee tomorrow (Friday) in Phoenix. In NASCAR, three Wisconsin drivers will compete for starting spots in Sunday’s Daytona 500 when they seek to qualify tonight (Thursday) in a pair of 150 mile Can Am Duels. Matt Kenseth of Cambridge starts fifth and Paul Menard of Eau Claire eleventh in the first qualifier, and Beloit born Danica Patrick starts 12th in the second duel. The state high school individual wrestling tournament begins today (Thursday) in Madison with 27 grapplers going for the second state titles or more — and in golf, Pewaukee native Mark Wilson plays in the P-G-A’s Honda Classic which begins today (Thursday) in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

(Milwaukee, WI) — The Marquette men’s basketball team sets a new school season record for three pointers in a 93-71 home rout of Saint John’s.

Marquette led by 15 at the half and rolled from there, improving to 8-7 in the Big East and 17-10 overall. Freshman Sam Hauser led the Eagles with 19 points, and Matt Heldt had his first career double double with 15 points and ten rebounds.

(Undated)  —  The U-W Green Bay men score 56 points in the second half en route to an 87-79 victory at Illinois Chicago. The Phoenix pulled away with a 15-0 run late in the second half, as they moved into sole possession of third place in the Horizon League at 11-5, with an overall mark of 17-11. Warren Jones scored 22 for Green Bay, while Tai Odiase had 16 points and 12 rebounds for Illinois Chicago as the Flames dropped to 7-9 in the conference and 14-15 overall. Meanwhile, the U-W Milwaukee men lost at league leading Valparaiso 67-61. Brock Stull scored 22 as the Panthers fell to 4-12 in the Horizon League and 8-21 overall — and Alec Peters had 23 points for Valpo, which is now 13-3 in the conference and 23-6 overall.

 

>>D3 Hoops: WIAC Men, NACC Women Begin League Tourneys With Upsets

(Undated)  —  U-W La Crosse pulls off a mild upset in the first round of the W-I-A-C men’s basketball tournament. The fifth seeded Eagles won at Number Four Eau Claire on Tuesday night, 76-66. Ben Meinholz scored 24 points for La Crosse, which will now play at top seeded River Falls in the league semifinals tomorrow (Thursday) night. Third seeded Whitewater scored a 78-69 home victory against Number six Stout, and the Warhawks will play at Number two Oshkosh in the semis. The N-A-C-C women’s basketball tournament also began Tuesday night, as sixth seeded Alverno upset Number three Benedictine 64-63 while fourth seeded Wisconsin Lutheran topped Concordia Chicago 66-45.

>>Fifteen Upsets In Girls’ Prep Basketball Regionals

(Undated)  —  There are 15 upsets in 150 games as the Wisconsin girls’ high school basketball regionals began Tuesday night. The biggest upset was in Division Four, where 12th seeded Manawa upended Number Five Manitowoc Roncalli 53-47. In six games, tenth seeded teams eliminated Number sevens — Oregon, Sheboygan Falls, Waterloo, Gresham, Solon Springs, and Rosholt. The only defending champion that played Tuesday night, Wisconsin Rapids Assumption, won its opener in Division Five, eliminating Tigerton 61-49. The only top seeds that played were in “D” Five, and they went 4-0 on the night — and defending champs Verona, New Berlin Eisenhower, Hayward, and Mineral Point were among those getting byes to Friday night’s second round.

 

>>WIAA Hockey Regionals: Boys’ Defending Champ Loses

(Undated)  —  There will be a new state champion in W-I-A-A boys’ high school hockey. Returning champ Appleton East lost to Neenah 4-0 in the first round of the sectionals on Tuesday night, but it was not an upset because East was only seeded fifth this year while Neenah had the Number One seed. All eight top seeds cleared their brackets and advanced to the sectional finals on Friday and Saturday — Neenah, Hudson, Eau Claire Memorial, Wausau West, West Salem/Bangor, Verona, Waukesha North, and Hartland Arrowhead. In the girls’ tournament, top seeded Fond du Lac lost to the University School of Milwaukee 2-1 — but Number Ones Hudson, Sun Prairie, and Schofield D-C Everest all made it to Friday night’s sectional finals, as did defending champion Hayward.

 

>>Brewers: Jungmann Would Begin The Season From The Bullpen

(Phoenix, AZ)  —  Milwaukee Brewers’ right hander Taylor Jungmann would open the regular season from the bullpen, if he makes the team. Manager Craig Counsell said Tuesday that if the former starter pitches well at Spring Training, the team will “consider” letting Jungmann start the year as a reliever — and from there, it will be based on what the coaches see. Jungmann went 0-5 in six starts and two relief outings, and he spent most of last season in the minors to straighten out his mechanics. Meanwhile, Milwaukee batters hit live pitching Tuesday for the first time this spring, as ten hurlers threw to hitters including Hiram Burgos — who will start in the Crew’s first exhibition game on Friday against U-W Milwaukee. Up to 14 more pitchers will make their first throws to hitters today (Wednesday).

Jessica Lindstrom had 18 points and 13 rebounds for Green Bay on Monday, as it improved to 13-3 in Horizon play and 22-5 overall.

>>Wisconsin Loses At Michigan, Slips Into Tie For Big Ten Lead

(Ann Arbor, MI)  —  The Wisconsin men’s basketball team falls into a three way tie for first place in the Big Ten after losing at Michigan Thursday night 64-58. The Badgers played without senior guard Bronson Koenig, whose performance slipped after he injured his left calf late in January — and coach Greg Gard was not sure when Koenig could return, saying he was day to day. Michigan took the lead for good with almost eight minutes left, when Muhammad Ali Abdur Rahkman was fouled in making a three pointer and hit the free throw that came with it. Moritz Wagner scored 21 for the Wolverines, who snapped a five game losing streak to the Badgers and won their third straight overall with a 7-6 conference mark. Wisconsin shot 38-percent, continuing a six game shooting slump as center Ethan Happ scored 22 points — and the eleventh ranked Badgers fell to 10-3 in the Big Ten, tied with Purdue and Maryland, with the U-W hosting the Terrapins on Sunday.

>>Bucks’ Brogdon Ready For All Star Rookie/Sophomore Challenge

(New Orleans, LA)  —  The N-B-A All Star Weekend begins tonight (Friday) in New Orleans, and Milwaukee Bucks’ rookie guard Malcolm Brogdon will play in the Rising Stars Challenge. He’ll join former Badgers’ star Frank Kaminsky of Charlotte on a team of American born first and second year pros, against a squad of foreign born players. The 24-year-old Brogdon leads all N-B-A rookies in three point accuracy at 42-percent — and he’s averaging nine points and four assists while appearing in all 55 games for the Bucks. Brogdon was Milwaukee’s second round pick out of Virginia last year, and he says the pace of play in the N-B-A did not ramp up as much as he had expected. Several events are planned the next two nights in advance of Sunday evening’s N-B-A All Star Game, in which Giannis Antetokounmpo will be Milwaukee’s first participant since 2004.

At the W-I-A-C swim meet in Brown Deer, 17 time defending men’s champion U-W Stevens Point is in first place through five events with Eau Claire second — and five time defending women’s champion La Crosse leads Eau Claire after six events. Nate Somers of Stevens Point won his second straight title in the 500 yard freestyle. Samantha Senczyszyn of Eau Claire won her third gold in the 50 freestyle, and Jessica Short of Eau Claire won for a third time in the 200 individual medley.

>>Bucks’ Brogdon Ready For All Star Rookie/Sophomore Challenge

(New Orleans, LA)  —  The N-B-A All Star Weekend begins tonight (Friday) in New Orleans, and Milwaukee Bucks’ rookie guard Malcolm Brogdon will play in the Rising Stars Challenge. He’ll join former Badgers’ star Frank Kaminsky of Charlotte on a team of American born first and second year pros, against a squad of foreign born players. The 24-year-old Brogdon leads all N-B-A rookies in three point accuracy at 42-percent — and he’s averaging nine points and four assists while appearing in all 55 games for the Bucks. Brogdon was Milwaukee’s second round pick out of Virginia last year, and he says the pace of play in the N-B-A did not ramp up as much as he had expected. Several events are planned the next two nights in advance of Sunday evening’s N-B-A All Star Game, in which Giannis Antetokounmpo will be Milwaukee’s first participant since 2004.

>>Wisconsin Loses At Michigan, Slips Into Tie For Big Ten Lead

(Ann Arbor, MI)  —  The Wisconsin men’s basketball team falls into a three way tie for first place in the Big Ten after losing at Michigan Thursday night 64-58. The Badgers played without senior guard Bronson Koenig, whose performance slipped after he injured his left calf late in January — and coach Greg Gard was not sure when Koenig could return, saying he was day to day. Michigan took the lead for good with almost eight minutes left, when Muhammad Ali Abdur Rahkman was fouled in making a three pointer and hit the free throw that came with it. Moritz Wagner scored 21 for the Wolverines, who snapped a five game losing streak to the Badgers and won their third straight overall with a 7-6 conference mark.

>>Bucks Hang On To Win At Brooklyn

(Brooklyn, NY) — The Milwaukee Bucks survive a 43 point fourth quarter rally by Brooklyn to beat the Nets 129-125 Wednesday night in New York City. Khris Middleton had his best performance since returning last week from hamstring surgery, as he made four free throws in the final 20 seconds to clinch Milwaukee’s third straight victory. Middleton had 20 points, seven assists, three steals, and three rebounds in a season high 26 minutes. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 33 points, as they handed the Nets their 14th straight loss overall and their 16th defeat in a row at the Barclays Center. Brook Lopez led Brooklyn with 36 points and eight blocked shots, as the Nets lost to Milwaukee for the eighth straight time. The Bucks enter their six day All Star break five games below .500 but still in playoff contention, as Antetokounmpo now gets ready to start for the Eastern Conference in Sunday night’s N-B-A All Star Game in New Orleans.

 

>>Wisconsin Seeks To Hang Onto Big Ten Lead At Michigan

(Ann Arbor, MI)  —  The Wisconsin men’s basketball team will try to hang onto a one half game lead in the Big Ten tonight (Thursday), when it plays at Michigan. The Badgers are 10-2 in the conference, after their seven point home loss to Northwestern last Sunday night. Purdue edged closer to first with a 19 point home rout of Rutgers Tuesday, and Maryland moved into a tie for second on Wednesday night with a 74-64 win at Northwestern. Maryland plays at Wisconsin on Sunday — but first, the Badgers will try this (Thursday) evening to end a five game shooting slump in which they’ve shot less than 40-percent, as they face a Michigan team that’s 6-6 in the Big Ten and 16-9 overall. The eleventh ranked Badgers are 21-4 overall.

 

>>Badger Women Fall At No. 2 Maryland

(College Park, MD)  —  The Wisconsin women get crushed at second ranked Maryland, 89-40. The Terrapins scored the first 16 points of Wednesday night’s game and rolled from there, as they stayed undefeated in the Big Ten at 14-0 with an overall mark of 26-1. Maryland shot 52-percent, a season high against the U-W, and S. Walker Kimbrough led the Terps with 22 points while hitting eight of nine from the floor. Freshman forward Courtney Frederickson scored 14 for Wisconsin, which shot 31-percent in losing its second straight while falling to 1-12 in the Big Ten and 6-20 overall.

 

>>Both Ranked WIAC Men’s Teams Lose, Two Women’s Teams Win Crowns

River Falls is now 11-2 in league play after winning the W-I-A-C’s regular season crown last weekend, and Whitewater dropped to a three way tie for second with its loss. In women’s basketball, Oshkosh won the W-I-A-C season title outright — its first championship since 2006 after edging U-W Whitewater 59-58 at home. And in the N-A-C-C, Concordia-Wisconsin won its second straight women’s regular season crown with an 80-39 home rout of Madison Edgewood.

The Admirals broke a 1-1 tie by scoring three goals in less than three minutes, starting with a penalty shot from Kevin Fiala who also had one assist on the night. N-H-L veteran Mike Ribeiro scored his first goal in five games for the Admirals on a power play to end the scoring spike. Juuse Saros had 25 saves after being sent to Milwaukee from the N-H-L’s Nashville Predators who are on a bye week.

Starters Wily Peralta and Hiram Burgos will miss part of their spring camp to play in the World Baseball Classic. In college swimming, Cannon Clifton is the Big Ten men’s swimmer of the week and the U-W’s Beata Nelson is the women’s freshman of the week — while the Division Three W-I-A-C opens its conference swim meet today (Thursday) in Brown Deer. And on the P-G-A golf tour, no Wisconsin players are competing in the Genesis Open in Pacific Palisades, California.

Freshman forward Courtney Frederickson scored 14 for Wisconsin, which shot 31-percent in losing its second straight while falling to 1-12 in the Big Ten and 6-20 overall.

 

>>Both Ranked WIAC Men’s Teams Lose, Two Women’s Teams Win Crowns

(Undated)  —  In Division Three college basketball, both nationally ranked W-I-A-C men’s teams lost their second to last regular season games on Wednesday night. U-W River Falls, ranked fourth by “D” Three Hoops Dot Com, lost at Eau Claire 83-80. And 17th ranked U-W Whitewater fell at home to Oshkosh 67-63. River Falls is now 11-2 in league play after winning the W-I-A-C’s regular season crown last weekend, and Whitewater dropped to a three way tie for second with its loss. In women’s basketball, Oshkosh won the W-I-A-C season title outright — its first championship since 2006 after edging U-W Whitewater 59-58 at home. And in the N-A-C-C, Concordia-Wisconsin won its second straight women’s regular season crown with an 80-39 home rout of Madison Edgewood.

 

>>AHL Hockey: Admirals Beat San Antonio For Eighth Straight Time

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Milwaukee Admirals score four times in the third period to beat San Antonio at home, 5-1 on Wednesday night. It was Milwaukee’s eighth straight victory against the Rampage, which is now 0-5 on a nine game road trip. The Admirals broke a 1-1 tie by scoring three goals in less than three minutes, starting with a penalty shot from Kevin Fiala who also had one assist on the night. N-H-L veteran Mike Ribeiro scored his first goal in five games for the Admirals on a power play to end the scoring spike. Juuse Saros had 25 saves after being sent to Milwaukee from the N-H-L’s Nashville Predators who are on a bye week.

Starters Wily Peralta and Hiram Burgos will miss part of their spring camp to play in the World Baseball Classic. In college swimming, Cannon Clifton is the Big Ten men’s swimmer of the week and the U-W’s Beata Nelson is the women’s freshman of the week — while the Division Three W-I-A-C opens its conference swim meet today (Thursday) in Brown Deer. And on the P-G-A golf tour, no Wisconsin players are competing in the Genesis Open in Pacific Palisades, California.

(Brooklyn, NY) — The Milwaukee Bucks survive a 43 point fourth quarter rally by Brooklyn to beat the Nets 129-125 Wednesday night in New York City. Khris Middleton had his best performance since returning last week from hamstring surgery, as he made four free throws in the final 20 seconds to clinch Milwaukee’s third straight victory. Middleton had 20 points, seven assists, three steals, and three rebounds in a season high 26 minutes. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 33 points, as they handed the Nets their 14th straight loss overall and their 16th defeat in a row at the Barclays Center. Brook Lopez led Brooklyn with 36 points and eight blocked shots, as the Nets lost to Milwaukee for the eighth straight time. The Bucks enter their six day All Star break five games below .500 but still in playoff contention, as Antetokounmpo now gets ready to start for the Eastern Conference in Sunday night’s N-B-A All Star Game in New Orleans.

 

>>Wisconsin Seeks To Hang Onto Big Ten Lead At Michigan

(Ann Arbor, MI)  —  The Wisconsin men’s basketball team will try to hang onto a one half game lead in the Big Ten tonight (Thursday), when it plays at Michigan. The Badgers are 10-2 in the conference, after their seven point home loss to Northwestern last Sunday night. Purdue edged closer to first with a 19 point home rout of Rutgers Tuesday, and Maryland moved into a tie for second on Wednesday night with a 74-64 win at Northwestern. Maryland plays at Wisconsin on Sunday — but first, the Badgers will try this (Thursday) evening to end a five game shooting slump in which they’ve shot less than 40-percent, as they face a Michigan team that’s 6-6 in the Big Ten and 16-9 overall. The eleventh ranked Badgers are 21-4 overall.

>>Brewers To Hold First Practice

(Phoenix, AZ)  —  The Milwaukee Brewers will hold their first official Spring Training workout today (Wednesday), after pitchers and catchers reported on Tuesday. Three pitchers will be restricted after having surgery in the offseason — Yhonathan Barrios with a bad shoulder, and Adrian Houser and Sean Nolin with elbow injuries. Outfielder Corey Ray, last year’s first round draft choice, is not expected to play at the Brewers’ Major League camp this spring after he tore his left meniscus last October at the Instructional League and had knee surgery. General manager David Stearns says Ray will still spend a couple weeks at big league camp to get to know the Brewers’ coaches and players a little better. Also, closer Neftali Feliz is expected to miss several days of camp due to visa issues from his home in the Dominican Republic.

 

>>Brewers: Anderson Loses Arbitration

(Phoenix, AZ)  —  Brewers’ starter Chase Anderson has lost his salary arbitration, but he’ll still get a nice pay raise from last season when he made 520-thousand dollars. A three person panel accepted the Brewers’ offer of two-point-four-five million dollars for this season, while Anderson wanted 400-thousand dollars more in Milwaukee’s first player arbitration hearing since 2012. The right hander went 9-11 last year with a four-point-three-nine E-R-A. His hearing took place nine days ago, but Major League Baseball waited to announce results for six pitchers so none of them would figure into the ongoing hearings.

(Madison, WI)  —  Wisconsin men’s basketball guard Bronson Koenig gets a breather, as he sat out Tuesday’s practice. The senior has been playing through an injured left calf suffered January 24th against Penn State. Koenig has only shot 25-percent since his injury, averaging nine points in his last five games while his season scoring average has dropped to almost 13 and one half points per outing. Koenig is expected to play tomorrow (Thursday) night, when the eleventh ranked Badgers take on Michigan at Ann Arbor. Meanwhile, the Badgers had their Big Ten Conference lead cut to one half game Tuesday night, when second place Purdue beat Rutgers at home, 74-55.

There were also four mild upsets as ninth seeded Stoughton, West Bend, Sauk Prairie, and Eau Claire Regis all defeated Number eight seeds. Forty-six teams played Tuesday while 41 others had byes, including returning champ Appleton East and all eight Number Ones. Second round games will be played tomorrow (Thursday) and Friday throughout Wisconsin.

 

>>Former Packers’ Punter Masthay Seeks Return To NFL

(Green Bay, WI)  —  Former Green Bay punter Tim Masthay did not play in the N-F-L last season after the Packers cut him following last summer’s training camp. Now, the 29-year-old Masthay tells the Green Bay Press Gazette he wants to play for somebody this fall — and he’s training and staying ready in the hopes that a coach or G-M will call him. Masthay had one tryout with the Arizona Cardinals last fall, but that was it. Otherwise, he was busy helping his wife Amanda raise one son and two daughters, all of them age four and younger. The Packers signed Tampa Bay free agent Jacob Schum as their punter this past season — and he ranked 24th in the N-F-L with a net average of 39-point-one yards per punt.

Outfielder Corey Ray, last year’s first round draft choice, is not expected to play at the Brewers’ Major League camp this spring after he tore his left meniscus last October at the Instructional League and had knee surgery. General manager David Stearns says Ray will still spend a couple weeks at big league camp to get to know the Brewers’ coaches and players a little better. Also, closer Neftali Feliz is expected to miss several days of camp due to visa issues from his home in the Dominican Republic.

 

>>Brewers: Anderson Loses Arbitration

(Phoenix, AZ)  —  Brewers’ starter Chase Anderson has lost his salary arbitration, but he’ll still get a nice pay raise from last season when he made 520-thousand dollars. A three person panel accepted the Brewers’ offer of two-point-four-five million dollars for this season, while Anderson wanted 400-thousand dollars more in Milwaukee’s first player arbitration hearing since 2012. The right hander went 9-11 last year with a four-point-three-nine E-R-A. His hearing took place nine days ago, but Major League Baseball waited to announce results for six pitchers so none of them would figure into the ongoing hearings.

(Madison, WI)  —  Wisconsin men’s basketball guard Bronson Koenig gets a breather, as he sat out Tuesday’s practice.

Koenig has only shot 25-percent since his injury, averaging nine points in his last five games while his season scoring average has dropped to almost 13 and one half points per outing. Koenig is expected to play tomorrow (Thursday) night, when the eleventh ranked Badgers take on Michigan at Ann Arbor. Meanwhile, the Badgers had their Big Ten Conference lead cut to one half game Tuesday night, when second place Purdue beat Rutgers at home, 74-55.

Masthay had one tryout with the Arizona Cardinals last fall, but that was it. Otherwise, he was busy helping his wife Amanda raise one son and two daughters, all of them age four and younger. The Packers signed Tampa Bay free agent Jacob Schum as their punter this past season — and he ranked 24th in the N-F-L with a net average of 39-point-one yards per punt.

The Packers signed Tampa Bay free agent Jacob Schum as their punter this past season — and he ranked 24th in the N-F-L with a net average of 39-point-one yards per punt.

 

>>UWM Is Third In Preseason Horizon League Baseball Poll

(Indianapolis, IN)  —  U-W Milwaukee is picked to finish third in the Horizon League baseball regular season. A coaches’ preseason poll has Wright State taking first, and Illinois Chicago second. Milwaukee brings back junior catcher Daulton Varsho, last year’s Horizon League player of the year with a .381 batting average, six triples, and an on base plus slugging percentage of one-point-oh-five-seven — and Varsho threw out 20 would be base stealers last year, while stealing 16 bases himself in 17 tries. Milwaukee opens its season Friday against Illinois at the Cardinal Classic in Beaumont, Texas.

(Phoenix, AZ)  —  The Milwaukee Brewers will hold their first official Spring Training workout today (Wednesday), after pitchers and catchers reported on Tuesday. Three pitchers will be restricted after having surgery in the offseason — Yhonathan Barrios with a bad shoulder, and Adrian Houser and Sean Nolin with elbow injuries. Outfielder Corey Ray, last year’s first round draft choice, is not expected to play at the Brewers’ Major League camp this spring after he tore his left meniscus last October at the Instructional League and had knee surgery. General manager David Stearns says Ray will still spend a couple weeks at big league camp to get to know the Brewers’ coaches and players a little better. Also, closer Neftali Feliz is expected to miss several days of camp due to visa issues from his home in the Dominican Republic.

 

>>Brewers: Anderson Loses Arbitration

(Phoenix, AZ)  —  Brewers’ starter Chase Anderson has lost his salary arbitration, but he’ll still get a nice pay raise from last season when he made 520-thousand dollars. A three person panel accepted the Brewers’ offer of two-point-four-five million dollars for this season, while Anderson wanted 400-thousand dollars more in Milwaukee’s first player arbitration hearing since 2012. The right hander went 9-11 last year with a four-point-three-nine E-R-A. His hearing took place nine days ago, but Major League Baseball waited to announce results for six pitchers so none of them would figure into the ongoing hearings.

 

>>Badger Men’s Hoops: Koenig Sits Out Practice, UW Big Ten Lead Cut

(Madison, WI)  —  Wisconsin men’s basketball guard Bronson Koenig gets a breather, as he sat out Tuesday’s practice. The senior has been playing through an injured left calf suffered January 24th against Penn State. Koenig has only shot 25-percent since his injury, averaging nine points in his last five games while his season scoring average has dropped to almost 13 and one half points per outing. Koenig is expected to play tomorrow (Thursday) night, when the eleventh ranked Badgers take on Michigan at Ann Arbor. Meanwhile, the Badgers had their Big Ten Conference lead cut to one half game Tuesday night, when second place Purdue beat Rutgers at home, 74-55.

Forty-six teams played Tuesday while 41 others had byes, including returning champ Appleton East and all eight Number Ones. Second round games will be played tomorrow (Thursday) and Friday throughout Wisconsin.

(Green Bay, WI)  —  Former Green Bay punter Tim Masthay did not play in the N-F-L last season after the Packers cut him following last summer’s training camp.

Milwaukee led by 17 at the half in winning its first back to back games in the last month, with only a road contest at Brooklyn tomorrow (Wednesday) night before the All Star break.
