Wisconsin Sports 11-22

(Kansas City, MO)  —  Aaron Holiday scores on a drive to the basket with nine tenths of a second left to give 23rd ranked U-C-L-A a 72-70 win against Wisconsin at the Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City. Coach Greg Gard said it was unacceptable for his Badgers to commit three turnovers in their final eight possessions as the U-W blew a six point lead down the stretch and a 12 point edge from late in the first half. Holiday, meanwhile, scored ten of his team high 18 points in the final three minutes as U-C-L-A improved to 4-1. Ethan Happ had 19 points and nine rebounds to lead the Badgers. D’Mitrik Trice, Khalil Iverson, and freshman Brad Davison had 14 apiece as the U-W lost its third straight — all to ranked teams. Wisconsin finished last in a four team tournament held in conjunction with former Badger coach Bo Ryan’s induction into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame.

 

>>Other College Hoops: Marquette Goes For 3rd at Maui, UWM Women Beat Loyola

(Undated)  — The Marquette men will play L-S-U tonight (Wednesday) for third place among eight schools at the Maui Invitational in Hawaii. The Golden Eagles lost a semifinal game to sixth ranked Wichita State on Tuesday, 80-66 as only two Golden Eagles scored in double figures — Andrew Rousey with 26 points and Markus Howard with 25. Marquette shot just 33-percent in the second half in falling to 2-2 on the year, while Wichita State remained unbeaten at 4-0. In women’s college basketball, U-W Milwaukee held Loyola of Chicago to just 26-percent shooting, as the Panthers scored a 63-41 victory. Steph Kostowicz scored 19 as Milwaukee improved to 2-2 while Loyola dropped to 0-4.

 

>>Bucks’ Forward Teletovic Out 4 Weeks After Knee Surgery

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Milwaukee Bucks’ forward Mirza Teletovic will be out for at least four weeks after having surgery Tuesday to repair broken cartilage in his left knee. An orthopaedic surgeon performed the operation at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. Teletovic has averaged seven points and two rebounds in 16 minutes a game so far this season — and he’s made 47-percent of his three point attempts. The Bucks will play at Phoenix tonight (Wednesday) — and Milwaukee center John Henson will sit out that game after having a successful minor eye procedure on Tuesday. Henson led the Bucks with ten rebounds in their home loss to Washington Monday night, and he’s expected to return to the team in time for Saturday’s Bucks’ contest at Utah.

 

>>Badger Football Still 5th In Playoff, Preps For Gophers

(Madison, WI)  —  Wisconsin remains at Number five in the new College Football Playoff rankings, one place behind the top four teams that will square off in the national semifinals. Alabama is still first as unbeaten Miami rose one place to second, trading spots with Clemson while Oklahoma remains fourth. Meanwhile, the Badgers are keying in on Saturday’s regular season finale at Minnesota. The Gophers are 2-6 in the Big Ten and 5-6 overall — and they’ve lost to the U-W 13 straight times, which means that Paul Bunyan’s Axe has stayed in Madison since 2003. Senior outside linebacker Garret Dooley says there’s no way the 11-0 Badgers will consider this as a letdown game with Ohio State looming one week later for the Big Ten title.

 

>>Butler Semifinalist For Pro Football Hall Of Fame

(Green Bay, WI)  —  Former Green Bay Packers’ safety Leroy Butler is a semifinalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The Hall said Tuesday that Butler is among 27 still being considered for induction next year, part of an original list of 108 candidates. Butler made the semifinals for the first time, after a 12 year career in which he helped lead the Packers to a Super Bowl title in the 1996 season. He made the Hall’s All Decade Team of the ’90s, and one of his claims to fame was to invent the Lambeau Leap when he jumped into the stands in 1993 when he scored a defensive touchdown.

 

>>Packers’ Jones Apologizes For Marijuana Arrest

(Green Bay, WI)  —  Green Bay running back Aaron Jones apologizes to his “family, teammates, coaches, fans, and the Packers’ organization” for his marijuana arrest. The rookie spoke to reporters for the first time after he pleaded not guilty last week to driving with drugs in his system, speeding, and driving without a valid license. Jones says he “made a mistake” on October first when he was caught going 79 in a 55 zone on a Green Bay freeway, but he couldn’t say more because it’s an ongoing legal matter. Jones expects to return this season after he tore an M-C-L knee ligament November 12th at Chicago — and he won’t have surgery as he lets the scar heal while doing rehab work. Meanwhile, the Packers will practice today and on Thanksgiving as part of their preparation for Sunday night’s game at Pittsburgh.

Wisconsin Sports 11-21

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Milwaukee Bucks struggle on offense for the second game in a row as they lost at home to the Washington Wizards, 99-88 Monday night. Bradley Beal broke a tie game late in the third quarter by going on a personal 7-0 run, and the Bucks faded in the final period as they trailed by as many as 17. Milwaukee only made four of 22 shots from three point range — and the Bucks also had a hard time scoring in the paint, making just 24 of 44 from close up. Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 23, and John Henson had ten points and ten rebounds as the Bucks dropped their second straight to return to .500 at 8-8 — and Beal led the Wizards with 23. Bucks’ coach Jason Kidd missed the game after he and his wife had their third child on Sunday, daughter Cooper Anne — and assistant Joe Prunty led the team.

 

>>Men’s College Hoops: Badgers, Green Bay Lose; Marquette Wins

(Undated)  —  The Wisconsin men’s basketball team loses a second straight game to a ranked opponent, 70-65 to Number 22 Baylor at the Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City. The Badgers trailed by as many as 19 points in the second half before the U-W got to within two and no further. Ethan Happ had 23 points and 13 rebounds as Wisconsin dropped to 2-2 and will play U-C-L-A in a consolation game at K-C tonight (Tuesday). In Hawaii, the Marquette men won their opening game at the Maui Invitational, defeating V-C-U 94-83 as Markus Howard scored 22 — and the Golden Eagles improved to 2-1 with a contest today (Tuesday) against sixth ranked Wichita State. And the U-W Green Bay men lost at Mississippi State, 77-68 as the Phoenix shot 39-percent in falling to 1-2.

 

>>Women’s College Hoops: Badgers Beat Southern In Final Minute

(Madison, WI)  —  Abby Laszewski (luh sess’kee) makes a layup with 25 seconds left to give the Wisconsin women a 77-74 home win against Southern on Monday night. Southern missed a jumper with three seconds left — and then Cayla McMorris was fouled on the rebound and made two free throws to give the Badgers their final margin of victory. The sophomore Laszewski had a career night with 25 points and five rebounds as the U-W improved to 2-1 despite committing 21 turnovers. Samantha Duncan scored 17 for Southern, which dropped to 1-2.

 

>>Packers’ Clark May Have Escaped Serious Injury

(Green Bay, WI)  —  Green Bay Packers’ nose tackle Kenny Clark may have escaped a serious injury after his right ankle got trapped below a pile and shoved to the ground in Sunday’s home loss to Baltimore. N-F-L Network said “X” rays were negative, and Clark apparently escaped with a sprain after he was carted off the field. There’s no word on the extent of the sprain, but Clark tweeted that he appreciated the prayers from the fans — and as he put it, “I’ll be fine.” Packers’ coach Mike McCarthy did not have updates Monday on Clark, Clay Matthews, and offensive lineman Justin McCray — all of whom left the 23-0 loss to Baltimore early. McCarthy says Clark is having a “heck of a year” with 32 tackles including three for losses, one pass breakup, and one forced fumble — and the 5-5 Packers will spend this Thanksgiving week practicing for their Sunday night matchup at Pittsburgh.

 

>>Three UW Receivers Make Up For Injured, Missing Starters

(Madison, WI)  —  One reason the Wisconsin football team is 11-0 is that three backups have stepped up in the absence of injured receiver Quintez Cephus and senior Jazz Peavy who left early. Freshmen Danny Davis and Kendric Pryor, and sophomore A-J Taylor have combined for 14 catches and runs for 269 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Quarterback Alex Hornibrook says that when one of those young receivers makes a big play, the others get “antsy” until they can make their own big plays. Taylor is averaging 23 yards a catch, Davis has made four key third down conversions to keep drives alive, and Pryor has two rushing touchdowns to go with one receiving score. The fifth ranked Badgers are gearing up for their regular season finale at Minnesota on Saturday.

 

>>Brewers Protect Four Prospects From Rule Five Draft

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Milwaukee Brewers have added four prospects to their 40 man roster, so they don’t lose any of them next month in the Major League Rule Five Draft. Catcher Jacob Nottingham, shortstop Mauricio Dubon, and pitchers Freddy Peralta and Marcos Diplan will be off limits to other teams who must keep the young players they draft on their big league rosters for all of next season, barring injuries. The 23-year-old Dubon is the best known of the group, after playing in the All Star Futures Game in Miami in July. He batted .274 in Double “A” and Triple “A” last season with eight homers, 38 stolen bases, and 57 R-B-Is. Also Monday, the Brewers announced a 33 game exhibition schedule that starts February 23rd in Arizona with a pair of split squad games against the Cubs and Giants — and they’ll finish with a pair of exhibitions at Houston before the regular season begins.

>>Pack Commits 5 TOs In Loss To Ravens

(Green Bay, WI)  —  The Green Bay Packers commit five turnovers in their 23-0 loss to Baltimore Sunday at Lambeau Field — eleven years to the day that the Packers were last shut out at home, 35-0 to New England. Coach Mike McCarthy says Brett Hundley remains his quarterback, despite three interceptions and a fumble he lost — and running back Devante Mays committed the other turnover with a lost fumble. Hundley threw for 239 yards, and Davante Adams caught eight passes for 126 yards as Jamaal Williams ran 57 yards for Green Bay — while Ravens’ quarterback Joe Flacco threw for 183 yards with one touchdown and one pick. The Packers had more total yards, 265-219, but it was the Ravens who improved to 5-5 with their third shutout of the year — while the Pack dropped to 5-5 in losing four of five. Three Packers left early with injuries — linebacker Clay Matthews had a bad groin, defensive lineman Kenny Clark was carted off with an injured ankle, and right tackle Justin McCray hurt a knee.

 

>>NFC North: Vikes, Lions Win; Pack Drops To Third

(Undated)  —  The Minnesota Vikings now have a two game lead on Detroit and three games on Green Bay in the N-F-C North Division. The Vikes are 8-2 with six straight victories after beating the Los Angeles Rams, 24-7 in Minneapolis — and the Lions edged the Bears in Chicago, 27-24. Latavius Murray ran for two touchdowns as the Vikings put a clamp on the N-F-L’s top scoring offense. In the Lions’ victory, Matt Prater kicked a 52 yard field goal with 95 seconds left as Detroit moved into sole possession of second in the North at 6-4, one game ahead of Green Bay and three up on the last place Bears.

 

>>No Change For Badgers In D1 Football Polls, Oshkosh Advances In D3

(Madison, WI)  —  Wisconsin holds steady in the national college football polls, after their two touchdown home victory against Michigan on Saturday. The Badgers are still ranked fourth by the coaches and fifth by the media at 11-0, and we’ll find out tomorrow (Tuesday) night if they move from their Number five spot in the College Football Playoff Rankings. On Sunday, we learned that the U-W landed a much sought after recruit for 2019 — high school junior Logan Brown, a 285 pound offensive tackle from Grand Rapids, Michigan. In Division Three football, U-W Oshkosh will play North Central of suburban Chicago on Saturday in the Sweet 16 round of the division playoffs. Oshkosh is the only Wisconsin team still in the tournament after the Titans eliminated N-A-C-C champion Lakeland of Sheboygan County 63-0 this past Saturday.

 

>>College Hoops: Ryan Inducted Into Hall, UWM Men Get Last Second Win

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Retired Wisconsin men’s basketball coach Bo Ryan is inducted into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame. Ryan and seven others joined the Hall Sunday night in Kansas City, crediting his success to bringing in team players for a career record of 747-233 mostly in 29 seasons at Madison and Division Three Platteville. The Badger men will play Baylor tonight (Monday) and either Creighton or U-C-L-A tomorrow (Tuesday) in the Hall of Fame Classic at Kansas City. In college basketball on Sunday, Jeremy Johnson made a jump shot with one second left off his own rebound, as the U-W Milwaukee men beat Elon of North Carolina 72-71 to win the U-W-M Black and Gold Shootout. The Panthers overcame a 19 point deficit late in the first half, as Brock Stull scored 21 points to help Milwaukee improve to 4-1 on the young season while Elon fell to 3-3.

 

>>NASCAR: Kenseth Ends Career With Eighth Place Finish At Miami

(Homestead, FL)  —  Wisconsin’s most decorated NASCAR driver ends his career with an eighth place finish at Sunday’s Ford EcoBoost 400 near Miami. Matt Kenseth of Cambridge closes out his 18th season in seventh place in the year’s point standings for the Monster Energy Series. The 45-year-old Kenseth was let go by Joe Gibbs Racing, and he did not hook up with another team in the final weeks of the season. He ends his career with one Cup championship in 2003 — two Daytona 500 victories, and 39 overall wins. Martin Truex, Junior won the race and the season title — Paul Menard of Eau Claire finished 23rd for the year following a 16th place finish Sunday — and Beloit born Danica Patrick had an accident just after the halfway point of the race, and she finished 37th for the day and 28th in her final full NASCAR campaign.

 

>>Other Sports: Bucks, NCAA Soccer, College Volleyball

(Undated)  —  The Milwaukee Bucks will host Washington tonight (Monday) after the Bucks got crushed by 32 points at Dallas on Saturday. Wisconsin will play at Akron this Saturday in the Sweet 16 round of the N-C-A-A men’s soccer tournament, after the Badgers won at 12th seeded Notre Dame 1-0 Sunday evening. Mike Catalano scored the only goal as the U-W improved to 12-4-and-5. In college volleyball, U-W Green Bay was shut out at Cleveland State in three sets in the title match of the Horizon League Tournament as Lydia DeWeese earned her one-thousandth career kill in the final set — and Green Bay closed out their season at 15-15.  In regular season volleyball, 12th ranked Wisconsin blanked Northwestern in three sets at Evanston, Illinois. Freshman Dana Rettke had 13 kills and ten blocks as the Badgers improved to 10-8 in the Big Ten and 19-8 overall.

>>State Prep Football Finals: Four Down, Three Left

(Madison, WI)  —  Four champions have been crowned at the state high school football finals in Madison, and three more title games are set for today (Friday). Lodi (low die) beat defending champion Saint Croix Central 17-10 in overtime Thursday night in the Division Four final, as Ben Rashid ran in the game winning T-D from one yard out. Amherst won its third straight Division Five crown, 28-21 against Lake Country Lutheran as Marcus Glodowski set a “D” Five record with 269 rushing yards. Fond du Lac Springs beat Iola/Scandinavia 35-12 to take the Division Six crown, and Bangor won its second title in three years with a 37-14 victory against previously unbeaten South Wayne Black Hawk. In today’s (Friday’s) contests, Rice Lake faces New Berlin Eisenhower in the “D” Three final, Waunakee plays Brookfield Central for the Division Two crown, and Kimberly goes for a fifth straight Division One championship when it takes on Sun Prairie.

 

>>Badger Men’s Basketball Team Falls To Xavier

(Madison, WI)  —  The Wisconsin men’s basketball team loses its first game of the season, 80-70 at home to 15th ranked Xavier in the Big Ten/Big East Gavitt Games. The Badgers led by two with more than two and a half minutes left — but Xavier guard Trevon Bluiett then made two free throws and back to back three pointers to put the Musketeers in front for good. Bluiett scored 25 points for Xavier, which improved to 3-0 and avenged an N-C-A-A loss to the U-W in March of 2016 — and Wisconsin junior Ethan Happ scored 21 and went above one-thousand points for his career. Tonight (Friday), the U-W Milwaukee men host Concordia/Saint Paul, and U-W Green Bay hosts Division Three Lakeland. The Milwaukee women play Houston in New Orleans in the consolation bracket of the Preseason W-N-I-T tournament — and in Division Two, the Parkside men face Saint Mary’s of Texas in San Antonio.

 

>>NCAA Men’s Soccer Tourney: Badgers Beat UIC In First Round

(Madison, WI)  —  The Wisconsin men’s soccer team wins its N-C-A-A Tournament opener, eliminating Illinois/Chicago 4-1 in Madison on Thursday night. Jacob Graiber scored U-I-C’s only goal in the 28th minute, and then the U-W scored the remaining four tallies. Tom Barlow scored on a penalty kick to end the 43rd minute, and he had the Badgers’ final goal in the 87th minute. Mike Catalano scored the decisive goal almost 53 minutes in. Wisconsin advances to the Round of 32, and will play 12th seeded Notre Dame in South Bend on Sunday.

 

>>Badger Football: Thirteen Seniors To Be Honored

(Madison, WI)  —  Thirteen seniors will be honored at their final home football game tomorrow (Saturday) when Wisconsin tries to go 11-0 against Michigan. Tight end Troy Fumagalli, among the Badgers’ top receivers, will be among the seniors recognized. It’s a huge game for the U-W’s playoff hopes, as the Badgers are just one spot away from the four teams to compete in the national semifinals. Michigan is 19th in the rankings at 5-2 in conference play and 8-2 overall. Badgers’ center Tyler Biadasz is listed as questionable for tomorrow (Saturday), after he hurt his left knee in last Saturday’s win against Iowa — and backup Jason Erdmann could get the start.

 

>>Packers: Free Agent Defensive Pickups Dial, Brooks Recover

(Green Bay, WI)  —  Two free agent pickups from San Francisco will try to give a spark to the Green Bay Packers defense on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens at Lambeau Field. Defensive lineman Quinton Dial is back at practice after missing two games with a chest injury that’s been bothering him since late September — and defensive coordinator Dom Capers says Dial has played against the run very well in his limited time. Outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks deflected a pass last week at Chicago in his first action after missing three games with a bad back.

 

>>Other Sports: Admirals Lose, Wilson Struggles On PGA Tour

(Undated) — In the American Hockey League, the Milwaukee Admirals lose at Cleveland, 5-3. Goaltender Juuse Saros, who was sent down Thursday from the N-H-L’s Nashville Predators, had 25 saves for Milwaukee — and Carter Camper had one goal and two assists in the Monsters’ victory. Milwaukee will try to salvage a victory in their two game series at Cleveland tomorrow (Saturday) night. In golf, Pewaukee native Mark Wilson struggled in his opening round of the P-G-A’s R-S-M Classic in Sea Island, Georgia. He shot a plus two 74 Thursday, tied for 135th at eleven strokes behind tournament leader Chris Kirk.

>>State Prep Football Finals Begin

(Madison, WI)  —  At least four new state champions will be crowned at the W-I-A-A state high school football finals in Madison. Championship games in the four smallest divisions are set for today (Thursday) with three more tomorrow (Friday) at Camp Randall Stadium. Only Kimberly, Saint Croix Central, and Amherst will defend their most recent titles. Two undefeated teams will square off first in the Division Seven final, when Black Hawk and Bangor play at ten a-m — and this afternoon, unbeaten Fond du Lac Springs takes Iola/Scandinavia in the “D” Six title game, followed by the Division Five final in which Amherst goes for its third straight crown against undefeated Lake Country Lutheran. Tonight (Thursday), unbeaten Lodi faces returning Division Four champion Saint Croix Central — and then on Friday, Kimberly goes for its fifth straight title in Division One.

 

>>Packers: Clark Gives Defensive Line A Boost

(Green Bay, WI)  —  The Green Bay Packers’ defensive line is getting stronger with the emergence of nose tackle Kenny Clark. The second year pro has already surpassed his total numbers of tackles from last year, after playing almost three fourths of the snaps this season compared to just one third in his rookie campaign — when he missed three weeks at Training Camp with a back injury. Clark says he improved his workout and diet routine — and both have worked, as he has become a solid partner to Mike Daniels on Green Bay’s defensive front. The 5-4 Packers are gearing up for a home contest Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. Running back Ty Montgomery did not practice Wednesday after he aggravated a rib injury last Sunday, although he could play this week.

 

>>Bucks Block 16 Shots In Beating Detroit, Win Fourth Straight

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Milwaukee Bucks block 16 shots to win their fourth straight game, 99-95 against Detroit Wednesday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. The blocks were just two short of the Bucks’ record set in 1980 against the Pistons. Milwaukee led by 13 going into the fourth quarter but Andre Drummond tied the game by making a free throw — and Eric Bledsoe put the Bucks in front for good by hitting a jumper with 42 point five seconds left. Khris Middleton scored 27 points, and it was the only second time this season that Giannis Antetokounmpo did not lead the team in scoring — but he still had 21. Avery Bradley had a season high 28 points, Drummond had 13 points and 17 boards, and former Buck Tobias Harris added 13 points as Detroit snapped a five game winning streak while being outshot 49-to-35-percent.

 

>>Green Bay Women Crush Badgers

(Madison, WI)  —  The U-W Green Bay women’s basketball team uses a strong second half defense to crush the Wisconsin Badgers 67-34 in Madison. The Phoenix led by seven at the half, and they then outscored the Badgers 28-11 in the third quarter to lead by 24 going into the final ten minutes. Wisconsin scored just five points in the fourth quarter — each team helped the other by committing 18 turnovers apiece — and Green Bay outshot Wisconsin 50-to-27-percent, and they hit nine of 20 from three point range. Caitlyn Hibner had 19 points and five rebounds to help U-W Green Bay improve to 2-0 on the young season. Marsha Howard had 13 points and eight boards to lead the Badgers — and Wisconsin made only six of 15 free throws in dropping to 1-1.

 

>>D3 College Basketball Season Begins In Earnest

(Undated)  —  The season is underway for Wisconsin’s Division Three college basketball teams. Thirteen men’s teams played Wednesday night including U-W River Falls which is ranked tenth in “D” Three Hoops Dot Com’s preseason poll. The Falcons held court by beating Central 85-73, as W-I-A-C teams went 4-2 on the night. Saint Norbert topped Eau Claire by eight, and U-W Stevens Point lost to Saint Olaf of Minnesota by 15. Thirteen Wisconsin women’s teams also played in “D” Three, as 20th ranked Whitewater topped Elmhurst 75-64.

 

>>Phoenix OKs Improvements At Brewers’ Spring Complex, New Lease

(Phoenix, AZ)  —  The Milwaukee Brewers will stay at their current spring training complex for another 25 years. The Phoenix City Council voted Wednesday to extend the Crew’s lease at Maryvale Baseball Park through 2042. And the city agreed to kick in ten-million dollars for improvements that include a new clubhouse and office facility for both the Brewers’ Major League and minor league operations. The Brewers will spend between 41-million and 63-million on the project — and they’ll use their current clubhouse/office structure for other things. Two of the eight Phoenix council members voted against the plan, as one said government should not be paying for pro sports.

>>Badgers Rise To Fifth In Football Playoff Rankings

(Madison, WI)  —  Wisconsin rises three places to Number Five in the season’s third College Football Playoff Rankings announced Tuesday night. That apparently gives the Badgers at least a chance to become one of the four playoff participants if they can finish their regular season with wins against Michigan and at Minnesota — plus a victory in the Big Ten Championship game next month. Iowa fell out of the playoff Top 25 after the Badgers beat the Hawkeyes by 24 last Saturday — but Michigan made its debut at Number 24, giving the U-W a chance to beat a ranked team for the second week in a row. Alabama, Clemson, Miami, and Oklahoma are the current Top Four that would make the national semifinals on New Year’s Eve if the final order doesn’t change.

 

>>Size Disadvantage Costs Marquette Men In Loss To Purdue

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Marquette men’s basketball team is now 1-1 after losing at home to Purdue on Tuesday night, 86-71. The Golden Eagles were hurt by a size disadvantage, as the Boilermakers used a pair of seven foot two players to outscore the smaller Marquette team 30-12 in the paint. One of those seven footers, Isaac Haas, led Purdue in scoring with 22 points, as the Boilermakers — ranked 21st in the coaches’ poll — outshot Marquette 57-to-40-percent for the game and had a 34-23 rebounding edge. Purdue also made 18 of 23 free throws as it improved to 3-0. Marquette trailed by two at the break despite closing the first half with an 11-2 run, and they never led in the second half as Andrew Rousey led the Eagles with 25 points.

 

>>Other Men’s Hoops: UWGB Loses, Herro Commits To Kentucky

(DeKalb, IL)  —  The U-W Green Bay men were outshot 51-26 percent in losing their season opener at Northern Illinois, 85-65. The Phoenix trailed by 13 at the break and never led in the second half as they got the deficit to within two before the Huskies pulled away to go 1-0. Khalil Small led Green Bay with 13 points and ten rebounds — but he only made two of 14 from the floor while hitting on all eight of his free throw attempts. Levi Bradley led Northern Illinois with 28 points. In other men’s basketball news, Tyler Herro of Whitnall — who withdrew his verbal commitment to the Badgers last month — signed a letter of intent to play for John Calipari at Kentucky next fall.

 

>>Garnett Returns To Bucks Practice

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Retired N-B-A star Kevin Garnett makes his first appearance of the season at a Milwaukee Bucks’ practice. Coach Jason Kidd had the 41-year-old champion center stop by several times last year to encourage Bucks’ players. On Tuesday, Garnett told center Thon Maker to slow down and read the defense better. He also gave workouts to Bucks’ scorers Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton — and Garnett prepared for the visit by watching film of Milwaukee’s performances so far. The Bucks are 7-6 after winning their third straight game Monday night against Memphis — and Milwaukee hosts the Detroit Pistons tonight (Wednesday).

 

>>Packers Bring Back Long Snapper Goode

(Green Bay, WI)  —  Veteran long snapper Brett Goode has rejoined the Green Bay Packers, and reports say he’s healthy and can play Sunday against Baltimore at Lambeau Field. Goode signed a new contract Tuesday after he was cut following Week Three with an injury settlement resulting from a hurt hamstring. Goode is normally a reliable snapper for kicker Mason Crosby — who had a bad snap blocked on a field goal attempt last week against Detroit, and Crosby missed a field goal last Sunday at Chicago when holder Justin Vogel dropped the snap. Both those snaps came from replacement Derek Hart, who was cut Tuesday. Goode’s injury settlement that allowed him to return to the Packers in seven weeks if nobody else picked him up.

 

>>Baseball Awards: Counsell 4th In NL Voting, Molitor Wins AL Honor

(Undated)  —  Milwaukee’s Craig Counsell places fourth in the voting for the National League Manager of the Year. The Baseball Writers Association announced its managerial honors Tuesday night. Arizona’s Torey Lovullo won the N-L award while former Brewers’ infielder Paul Molitor of the Minnesota Twins received the American League honor. There was at least some talk that Counsell might be in line the National League award after he helped keep a rebuilding club in playoff contention until the second to last day of the season, as the Crew won 13 more games than the previous season with a record of 86-76. Molitor led the Twins to their first playoff berth since 2010 with a mark of 85-77.
