>>Hayes, Happ Help Badgers Get By Nebraska In Overtime

(Lincoln, NE)  —  Nigel Hayes makes a three pointer with 18 point four seconds left, and Ethan Happ blocks Nebraska’s final shot to give Wisconsin a 70-69 overtime victory at Lincoln. The Badgers won their eighth straight game even though they were outrebounded 50-37 while shooting poorly for their fourth straight contest, hitting just 36-point-five percent. Hayes scored 20 points, all but two after halftime, as Wisconsin continues to lead the Big Ten by one and one half games with Purdue now in second and Maryland third. Michael Jacobson took the Cornhuskers to overtime with a three pointer at the buzzer, and Tai Webster scored 19 as Nebraska lost its eighth game in its last nine to drop to 4-8 in the Big Ten and 10-14 overall. Zak Showalter made four three pointers and had 15 for the Badgers, who are now 10-1 in the conference and 21-3 overall.

 

>>Kidd: Bucks Have Spirited Practice Despite Missing Parker

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Milwaukee Bucks’ coach Jason Kidd says his team had a spirited practice Thursday, despite the news that Jabari Parker will miss 12 more months with a second torn A-C-L in his left knee. The Bucks don’t have much time to grieve as they host the Los Angeles Lakers tonight (Friday) and play at Indiana tomorrow (Saturday). The 21-year-old Parker, a third year pro, hurt the knee Wednesday in a Bucks’ home loss to Miami — and it’s the same knee he hurt in December of 2014. Kidd says the Bucks had to play this season without high scoring Khris Middleton until this week — and now they must learn how to play without Parker. Kidd says it will take a team effort just to win, as the Bucks have lost nine of eleven to slip to eleventh place in the N-B-A’s Eastern Conference, two games behind Detroit for the eighth and final East playoff spot with 31 games left.

 

>>Horizon Men’s Hoops: Green Bay, UWM Both Lose

(Undated)  —  The U-W Green Bay men fall two games back in the Horizon League men’s basketball race, after losing at Northern Kentucky 69-67 on Thursday night. The Phoenix roared back from 18 points down, but they committed two traveling violations in the final minute and could not get over the hump. Kerem Kanter had 23 points and 14 rebounds as Green Bay dropped to 9-4 in conference play but still kept sole possession of second place, one half game on Oakland and two behind Valparaiso which became the first Horizon team to win 20 overall games. U-W Milwaukee, meanwhile, dropped to a tie for eighth place after losing at Wright State 76-65. The Raiders took control with a 12-2 run in the second half, as Brock Stull scored 19 for a U-W-M team which slipped to 4-9 in Horizon play and 8-18 overall.

 

>>Women’s Hoops: Badgers Snap 10 Game Losing Streak; UWGB, UWM Also Win

(Undated)  —  The Wisconsin women snap a ten game losing streak with an 82-56 home victory against Nebraska. Courtney Fredrickson had 15 points and ten rebounds for the U-W, which shot 50-percent and won its first Big Ten contest of the year and its first overall game since December 15th. In the Horizon League, U-W Green Bay remains in second place by one half game after a 79-60 home victory against Cleveland State which ended a two game losing streak. Jessica Lindstrom had 24 points and ten rebounds for U-W-G-B, which is now 11-2 in the conference with 20 overall wins for the 18th straight year. Meanwhile, U-W Milwaukee used a 38-17 rebounding edge to win at Youngstown State 86-82, as Steph Kostowicz made six free throws in the final 75 seconds to help the Panthers improve to 8-5 in the Horizon League.

 

>>PGA Golf: Rain Holds Up First Round At Pebble Beach

(Pebble Beach, CA)  —  Two Wisconsin golfers have yet to complete their first rounds at the P-G-A’s Pebble Beach Pro Am. Steve Stricker of Madison only played eleven holes before rain washed out the day’s play. He was at two above par, tied for 82nd place at that point. Jerry Kelly of Madison was at plus eight on his 15th hole, tied for 152nd. Rick Lamb, Joel Dahmen, and Seung Yul Noh all had the clubhouse lead at minus four, as only 73 of the 156 players completed their rounds — and they’re scheduled to resume play at 9:30 this (Friday) morning on the central California coast.

 

>>Badger Hockey: Men Try To Win Sixth Straight, Women

(Madison, WI)  —  The Wisconsin men’s hockey team takes a five game winning streak into a pair of home contests against Penn State tonight (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday) night. The 17th ranked Badgers are tied for the Big Ten Conference lead with Minnesota at 8-2, as they come off back to back sweeps of Michigan State and Ohio State while Penn State is third at 5-4-and-1. Meanwhile, the top ranked Badger women’s hockey team has a big series in Madison against second ranked Minnesota Duluth tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday afternoons. It’s the final scheduled home series for the U-W, which is 21-2-and-1 in the W-C-H-A and 26-2-and-1 overall. U-M-D comes in a 17-4-and-3 in league contests and 20-4-and-4 overall.

>>Parker Reinjures Knee In Bucks’ Loss

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Milwaukee Bucks’ forward Jabari Parker will have an M-R-I today (Thursday) on the left knee he sprained in a 106-88 Bucks’ home loss to Miami Wednesday night which was the Heat’ 12th straight win. Parker was driving toward the basket midway through the third quarter when he fell and hurt the same knee in which he tore an A-C-L in December of 2014 as a rookie. General manager John Hammond says the extent of Parker’s injury will not be known until after the M-R-I — and Hammond said he and Kidd discussed basketball matters after the Bucks lost their eleventh game in their last 13. Miami led 17-2 and rolled from there, as Hassan Whiteside dominated with 23 points and 16 rebounds. Bucks’ guard Khris Middleton played 15 minutes in his season debut following hamstring surgery — and he had five points while Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 22 for the Bucks and Parker had 14 before he left.

 

>>Packers Have Questions At Corner Following Shields Release

(Green Bay, WI)  —  The Green Bay Packers have question marks in their secondary, after confirming that they cut corner Sam Shields. The 2010 Super Bowl champion and Pro Bowler first announced himself on Instagram Wednesday that he was let go. Media reports say Shields was surprised at the move, even though he missed most of 2016 with a concussion — and the Packers now have an estimated 40-million dollars in salary cap room after getting three-million with Shields’ release. Damarious Randall, who’s entering his third year, appears to be in line as Green Bay’s top cover corner. He had a solid tackle to finish the Packers’ season opening victory at Jacksonville last September — but Randall got burned by Minnesota’s Stefan Diggs in Week Two, and he missed six games with a sports hernia.

 

>>Badgers Take Win Streak, Shooting Woes Into Nebraska Contest

(Lincoln, NE)  —  The Wisconsin men’s basketball team takes a seven game winning streak into tonight’s (Thursday’s) game at Nebraska. The Badgers are also trudging through a shooting slump in which they’ve only hit 38-percent from the floor in their last three victories against Indiana, Illinois, and Rutgers. Center Ethan Happ is the only U-W player shooting above 43-percent in his last three outings — while Nigel Hayes only made eleven-percent and Vitto Brown seven-percent. The seventh ranked Badgers have relied on a solid defense — and coach Greg Gard says he’s confident the shooting will improve, as his team still seems to get the ball deep into the post area. Wisconsin leads the Big Ten at 9-1, and it puts up a 20-3 overall mark against a Nebraska team that’s 4-7 in the conference and 10-13 overall.

 

>>U-W Green Bay Women Try To Recover After Losing Two Straight

(Green Bay, WI)  —  The U-W Green Bay women will try to recover tonight (Thursday) after losing two straight games and their Top 25 national ranking. The Phoenix also lost their lead in the Horizon League standings as Wright State has a one half game advantage at 10-1 — while defending 18 time conference champion Green Bay is second at 10-2 following close defeats at Oakland and Detroit Mercy last week. Wright State hosts Valparaiso late this (Thursday) afternoon, while Green Bay hosts Cleveland State in the evening. In other women’s action tonight (Thursday), U-W Milwaukee entertains Youngstown State, and the Badger women try to snap a ten game losing streak when they host Nebraska. In men’s play, Green Bay is at Northern Kentucky as Milwaukee plays at Wright State — and in Division Two, the U-W Parkside men and women host Quincy.

 

>>Nine Brewers To Play In World Baseball Classic

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Nine players in the Milwaukee Brewers’ organization will be in the World Baseball Classic next month. Infielder Jonathan Villar and starter Wily Peralta top the list, and both will compete with their home Dominican Republic. The world tournament announced team rosters Wednesday, and two other Milwaukee players will spend time away from their Spring Training to be with foreign teams — utility player Hernan Perez with Venezuela, and reliever Carlos Torres with Mexico. Five Brewers’ minor leaguers will also compete — pitchers Andrew Barbosa, Hiram Burgos, and Jorge Lopez with Puerto Rico — pitcher Wei Chung Wang with Chinese Taipei, and catcher Cody Decker with Israel. The World Baseball Classic will go from March sixth through 22nd.

 

>>Brewers’ Anderson Has Arbitration Hearing, Must Wait For Result

(Undated)  —  Brewers’ starter Chase Anderson will be at Spring Training before he finds out the result of the salary arbitration hearing he had this week. Media reports say Anderson is among six Major League pitchers who are having their decisions delayed, so results from the early hearings cannot be used as evidence in the later ones. Three person panels will continue to hear arbitration cases through next Friday — and Anderson will get a nice raise no matter what happens. He’ll either get the two-point-eight-five-million dollars he requested for this year, or the Brewers’ offer of two-point-four-five-million. He made 520-thousand last season.

>>Packers Cut Starks

(Green Bay, WI)  —  James Starks has been cut by the Green Bay Packers with a non football injury designation. The seventh year running back ended his season with a concussion that left him out since December 12th, when his S-U-V collided with a semitruck on Green Bay’s east side. He also missed four games last October and November after having knee surgery, and he only had 145 rushing yards in nine games this past season. Starks, who turns 31 on February 25th, helped the Packers win the Super Bowl as a rookie in the 2010 campaign with 315 yards in Green Bay’s four playoff games — but he never had that kind of performance since, as numerous injuries hampered him and he backed up Eddie Lacy for four years. Starks’ release adds a net of two-point-two-five million dollars to Green Bay’s salary cap for next year, leaving Ty Montgomery as the Pack’s only halfback with a contract.

 

>>Former Brewer Carter Agrees To One Year, $3.5 Million With Yankees

(New York, NY)  —  Former Milwaukee Brewers’ slugger Chris Carter has reached a one year free agent agreement with the New York Yankees. E-S-P-N says the 30-year-old first baseman will get three-point-five million dollars. The Brewers let Carter go after refusing to offer him salary arbitration — which reportedly could have netted him as much as ten-million dollars this year. Carter made two-and-one-half million last year, after he was tied with Colorado’s Nolan Arenado for the National League home run title with 41 shots in Carter’s only season with the Crew. In the meantime, the Brewers had committed to bringing in veteran first baseman Eric Thames.

 

>>Marquette Men Fall To Butler

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Marquette men’s basketball team has lost three of its last four games, after falling at home to Butler 68-65. The Golden Eagles erased a seven point halftime deficit — but the Marquette offense then faltered in the final ten minutes, committing five turnovers and making just five of 16 shots as Butler went in front for good. Andrew Chrabascz led Butler with 21 points and five steals, and Avery Woodson scored 17 in place of high scoring Kelan Martin who was benched into the second half due to a coach’s decision. The 22nd ranked Bulldogs outshot Marquette 49-to-43-percent as Butler improved to 8-4 in the Big East and 19-5 overall. Luke Fischer and Markus Howard each had 19 for Marquette, which fell to 6-6 in the conference and 15-9 overall.

 

>>Big Ten Men’s Hoops: Badgers Extend Lead With Another Maryland Loss

(Undated)  —  The Wisconsin men’s basketball team has extended its Big Ten Conference lead to one-and-one-half games ahead of Maryland and Purdue. That’s after the 21st ranked Terrapins lost their second straight, 70-64 at Penn State on Tuesday night. That puts Maryland and Purdue at 8-3 in conference play, while the seventh ranked Badgers are 9-1 after being idle Tuesday. Wisconsin’s next game is tomorrow (Thursday) night at Nebraska.

 

>>Bucks’ “D” League Affiliation To Be Confirmed

(Oshkosh, WI)  —  The Milwaukee Bucks are expected to confirm their new N-B-A Developmental League affiliation with Oshkosh this (Wednesday) afternoon at a news conference. Media reports surfaced Tuesday that the Bucks chose Oshkosh ahead of Racine and Sheboygan — and one report of an announcement Tuesday was in error. The Bucks will be the 20th N-B-A team to own a “D” League franchise, which lets them control a minor league affiliation and give Bucks’ players rehab stints with Oshkosh. The team is expected to start playing this fall in the vacant Buckstaff furniture factory, that’s being converted to a 35-hundred seat arena. After the news conference, some former Bucks will hold a youth basketball clinic — and there’s a public celebration at 6:30 tonight (Wednesday) at The Bar in Oshkosh, where people can watch the Bucks play the Miami Heat starting at seven.

 

>>AHL Hockey: Admirals Lose To Cleveland

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  In the American Hockey League, the Milwaukee Admirals give up three goals in the first period on their way to a 4-1 home loss to Cleveland Tuesday night. Oliver Bjorkstrand scored twice for the Monsters, who were held without a goal in their last two games. Derek Army had the only goal for Milwaukee, which remains third in the A-H-L’s Central Division with 56 points — five behind front running Grand Rapids. Tuesday’s game was also the first Admirals’ contest for 36-year-old center Mike Ribeiro, who asked for a trade from the N-H-L’s Nashville Predators after his playing time dwindled. The Predators put him on waivers last week but nobody claimed him so the Predators assigned him to Milwaukee.

>>Marquette Men Seek To Avoid Butler Scoring Burst

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Marquette men’s basketball team hosts 22nd ranked Butler tonight. The Golden Eagles will try to avoid what happened the last time the two teams got together January 16th in Indianapolis — when Marquette blew an 18 point lead as the Bulldogs scored 63 points in the second half. That was the highest second half outburst by any Big East team since Pittsburgh had 67 in 1990 against Providence. Marquette has lost two of its last three games, but the Eagles are coming off a 92-79 victory at DePaul last Saturday in which Andrew Rousey scored 22 points. Marquette is 6-5 in the Big East and 15-8 overall, while Butler comes in at 7-4 in the conference and 18-5 overall on the heels of a nine point home loss to Creighton last Tuesday night in which Kamar Baldwin scored 14.

 

>>D3 Hoops Polls: River Falls Men Drop To No. 7

(Undated)  —  U-W River Falls loses its Top Five national ranking after snapping its 17 game winning streak. The Falcons dropped from fourth place to seventh in the new Division Three men’s basketball poll from “D” Three Hoops Dot Com, after River Falls lost by five points at home to Oshkosh Saturday night to fall to 19-2 overall. Saint Norbert jumped one place to Number nine in the new men’s poll, and Whitewater rose three spots to 18th while Eau Claire fell out of the Top 25 and Babson remained the men’s Number One. In the “D” Three women’s poll, U-W Oshkosh went up two places to 14th, and Whitewater dropped five spots to 24th. Amherst is the new women’s Number One after Tufts — which led for most of the season — lost to Amherst Saturday and dropped to third.

 

>>Super Bowl Outcome May Helped Packers

(Green Bay, WI) — The New England Patriots might have done the Green Bay Packers a favor by roaring back to win the Super Bowl. Had Atlanta won, the Packers might have opened the 2017 regular season by facing the Falcons in their new Mercedes Benz Stadium on the first Thursday night while other teams get longer breaks before opening on the Sunday and Monday after Labor Day in September. The Packers lost both their games at Atlanta this past season, and they’ll have to go back at some point this fall. But the league normally schedules the Super Bowl champion for its national Thursday night season opening telecast, and the Packers are not scheduled to play the Patriots this year since all of its A-F-C opponents will be from the North division. It’s possible that the N-F-L and N-B-C will schedule a Super Bowl rematch on Thursday night, since the Falcons are scheduled to play at New England this fall. The complete N-F-L comes out this spring.

 

>>Brewers, Anderson Could Go To Salary Arbitration

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Milwaukee Brewers and starter Chase Anderson could be going to salary arbitration, with a hearing possible before pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training next Tuesday. Unless there’s a last minute agreement, an arbitrator will decide whether Anderson will get the two-point-eight-five-million dollars he’s seeking for a one year deal — or the Brewers’ offer of 400-thousand dollars less. It would be Milwaukee’s first arbitration hearing since 2012, when they won a salary challenge from reliever Jose Veras. Meanwhile, reliever Rob Scahill will stay with the Brewers’ organization after clearing waivers this past week. But Milwaukee has lost infielder Ehire Adrianza, after Minnesota obtained him off waivers.

>>Former Badger White Has Record Setting Super Bowl For Pats

(Houston, TX)  —  Former Wisconsin Badger James White breaks two Super Bowl records and ties another for New England in its 34-28 overtime win against Atlanta at Super Bowl 51 in Houston. White scored the game winning touchdown on a two yard run which capped the only drive in the O-T after the Patriots won the toss. The third year pro also scored on a one yard run with 57 seconds left in regulation, and on a five yard scoring pass from the game’s M-V-P, Tom Brady — and he had a two point conversion in the third quarter to give White a Super Bowl record 20 points. His three touchdowns tied the record set by Terrell Davis in Super Bowl 32, when Denver beat Green Bay in the 1997 season — and White caught a game record 14 passes from Brady and only dropped two. The 25-year-old White, a four year standout with the Badgers, was the Pats’ leading receiver with 110 yards, plus 29 rushing yards on six carries as New England made the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history after being down 28-3.

 

>>Badgers Beat Indiana, Lead Big Ten By Themselves

(Madison, WI)  —  Wisconsin now has sole possession of the Big Ten men’s basketball lead, after hanging on to beat Indiana at home on Sunday, 65-60. The Badgers made seven of eight free throws in the last 52 seconds, but they did not put the game out of reach until five tenths of one second left when Nigel Hayes was fouled and made both his free throws. Josh Newkirk scored 22 points for Indiana, which has now lost 15 straight games at the Kohl Center, dropped three of four overall, and fell to 5-6 in the Big Ten and 15-9 overall. Ninth-ranked Wisconsin was led by center Ethan Happ with 20 points as the Badgers improved to 20-3 overall and 9-1 in the Big Ten. The Badgers have a one game lead on Maryland, which lost to by one point to Purdue on Saturday.

 

>>Marquette Women Lose To Saint John’s

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Saint John’s rallies in the fourth quarter to beat the Marquette women, 82-72 on Sunday. The game was tied going into the fourth quarter, and Jade Walker put the Red Storm in front for good by hitting a three pointer with eight minutes and 19 seconds to play. Andrayah Adams scored 27 points for Saint John’s, which improved to 8-5 in the Big East and 16-8 overall. Sophomore Natisha Hiedeman scored 19 for Marquette, which lost despite outrebounding the Red Storm 45-30. The Golden Eagles fell to 8-5 in the conference and 16-8 overall.

 

>>Bucks’ Two Newest Players Will Practice Monday

(Phoenix, AZ)  —  Centers Roy Hibbert and Spencer Hawes will practice with the Milwaukee Bucks for the first time today (Monday). The Bucks will work out at Phoenix, where they beat the Suns on Saturday — and coach Jason Kidd says Hibbert and Hawes will be available for the first time with their new team on Wednesday night, when the Bucks host Miami. Both were traded from Charlotte last Thursday in a deal that sent Miles Plumlee to the Hornets. They reported to their new team on Saturday — and they spent Sunday with the Bucks’ coaches to start learning about Milwaukee’s system. Hawes was a regular off the bench for Charlotte, and he had 12 points in a game last week against Sacramento — while Hibbert says he’s better after struggling with knee and quad injuries for most of this season.

Stricker, who turns 50 later this month, shot an even par 71 in his fourth and final round. Hideki Matsuyama won the tournament in four playoff holes with Webb Simpson.

(Houston, TX)  —  Former Wisconsin Badger James White breaks two Super Bowl records and ties another for New England in its 34-28 overtime win against Atlanta at Super Bowl 51 in Houston. White scored the game winning touchdown on a two yard run which capped the only drive in the O-T after the Patriots won the toss. The third year pro also scored on a one yard run with 57 seconds left in regulation, and on a five yard scoring pass from the game’s M-V-P, Tom Brady — and he had a two point conversion in the third quarter to give White a Super Bowl record 20 points. His three touchdowns tied the record set by Terrell Davis in Super Bowl 32, when Denver beat Green Bay in the 1997 season — and White caught a game record 14 passes from Brady and only dropped two. The 25-year-old White, a four year standout with the Badgers, was the Pats’ leading receiver with 110 yards, plus 29 rushing yards on six carries as New England made the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history after being down 28-3.

>>Bucks Say Trade Provides More Depth, Salary Cap Flexibility

(Denver, CO) — Milwaukee Bucks’ G-M John Hammond says a trade for two veterans will create more frontcourt depth, and more salary cap flexibility. The Bucks dealt center Miles Plumlee to Charlotte Thursday for center Roy Hibbert and forward/center Spencer Hawes — and the Bucks put forward Steve Novak on waivers to create roster space. Plumlee was considered an underachiever, averaging three points and two rebounds in 32 games — and with Milwaukee’s playoff hopes possibly fading, Hammond did not wait until the N-B-A trade deadline to bolster the post area with Milwaukee losing nine of its last ten games with a contest at Denver tonight (Friday). The 28-year-old Hawes averaging seven points and four rebounds with Charlotte this year while the 30-year-old, 7-2 Hibbert averages five points and four assists. The deal will save money for the Bucks, as they traded a newly signed Plumlee with a 12-and-one-half million dollar annual salary for Hibbert, who has a one-year, five-million dollar deal and Hawes, with a player option of six-million for next year.

 

>>Former UW Safety Jim Leonhard To Run Badger Defense

(Madison, WI) — Former Wisconsin and N-F-L safety Jim Leonhard (len’erd) will become the Badgers’ new defensive coordinator. Coach Paul Chryst promoted Leonhard Thursday to replace Justin Wilcox, who left to become the head coach at California. The 34-year-old Leonhard, a native of Tony in Rusk County, only has one year of college coaching experience after he ran the U-W secondary this past season. But Chryst says Leonhard is a great communicator and teacher, and his “schematic” knowledge of the game goes beyond his years. With Leonhard’s leaderhip, Wisconsin had 22 interceptions last year, second among F-B-S teams and the U-W’s highest since 2002 — when Leonhard himself had eleven of 22 picks.

 

>>Current UW Hockey Coaches Honor Late Coach Jeff Sauer

(Madison, WI)  —  The current Wisconsin men’s and women’s hockey coaches both learned a lot from former coach Jeff Sauer, who died Thursday from pancreatic cancer at age 73. Sauer’s Badgers won two national titles during his 20 years as the U-W’s head coach, ending in 2002. Current Wisconsin women’s coach Mark Johnson was one of Sauer’s assistants for six years, and he called him a “tremendous ambassador for hockey.” Tony Granato, in his first season in Sauer’s old job, played for him in the 1980s and says his caring and sharing meant much more than his 489 total victories — the most for a Wisconsin head coach in any sport. Granato’s Badger men play at Michigan State tonight (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday) night — while Johnson’s top ranked U-W women take a ten game winning streak into a pair of contests at Bemidji State the next two afternoons.

 

>>Brewers Acquire Power Hitting First Baseman

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Milwaukee Brewers will see if a minor league first baseman can provide some of the power they lost when they let Chris Carter go. The team claimed 26-year-old Jesus Aguilar off waivers from Cleveland Thursday, as bench support for newly acquired veteran first baseman Eric Thames. Aguilar has spent the last three years in Triple “A,” where he belted 68 homers with an on base plus slugging percentage of .818. He had 58 at bats for Cleveland last year with a .172 batting average and five R-B-Is — and he’s out of minor league options, so he would have to clear waivers to stay with the Milwaukee organization if he does not make the Brewers at Spring Training. To make room for him, the Brewers designated Ehire Adrianza for assignment after Milwaukee claimed him off waivers this week from San Francisco.

Green Bay made its final eight free throws to preserve its victory, with Warren Jones leading the way for the Phoenix with 18 points. In Horizon League women’s play, 21st ranked U-W Green Bay lost its first Horizon League game of the season, 74-71 at Oakland as Sha’keya Graves made a layup and a free throw in the final seconds to put the Golden Grizzlies above .500 in the conference at 6-5. And the U-W Milwaukee women lost at Detroit Mercy, 77-63 as the Titans shot 52-percent as U-W-M fell to 7-4 in Horizon play.

Matt Kuchar had a one stroke lead at minus seven 64, as the first round was not completed on Thursday due to darkness.

>>Bucks Lose At Utah For 15th Straight Time

(Salt Lake City, UT) — The Milwaukee Bucks have lost their annual game at Utah for the 15th straight year, falling 104-88 on Wednesday night. The Bucks fell apart in the second quarter, when they were outscored 31-16 to go down by 18 at the half — and the Jazz pushed the lead to 24 with a 10-4 run early in the third quarter. It was Milwaukee’s ninth loss in its last ten games, as the Bucks fell six games below .500 at 21-27 — and they’re now in tenth place in the Eastern Conference, but still only one game behind Charlotte for the eighth and final postseason slot. Jabari Parker led the Bucks with 17 points and rookie Thon Maker had 12 points and three blocked shots in his second consecutive start. Gordon Hayward led Utah with 27 points and Rudy Gobert had 26 points and 15 rebounds for a Jazz team that has now beaten the Bucks in every game on their home floor since 2001.

(New York, NY)  —  The Marquette men’s basketball team has lost its second straight, 86-72 to Saint John’s at Madison Square Garden in New York. The Golden Eagles trailed by eight at the break, after shooting just 35-percent in the first half. Marquette trailed by four with about 16 minutes left when Saint John’s pulled away with a 13-0 run. Bashir Ahmed scored a game high 23 points for the Red Storm, which improved to 5-6 in the Big East and 11-13 overall. Andrew Rousey scored 21 off the bench for Marquette, which negated two recent wins against Top Ten teams while falling to 5-5 in the Big East and 14-8 overall. Tonight (Thursday), there’s a full schedule in the Horizon League as the U-W Green Bay men host Illinois Chicago and the Milwaukee men entertain Valparaiso — and the 21st ranked Green Bay are at Oakland while the U-W-M women play at Detroit Mercy.

 

>>Women’s Hoops: Badgers Crushed At Northwestern, Now 0-9 In Big Ten

(Evanston, IL)  —  A poor shooting night gives the Wisconsin women their ninth straight loss, 63-43 at Northwestern. The Badgers only shot 22-percent in the first half and 33-percent for the game, as they dropped to 0-9 in the Big Ten Conference and 5-17 overall. Wisconsin’s defense held Northwestern to 24 points in the first 20 minutes, but the Badgers failed to score in the final seven minutes and 21 seconds of the half and went down by ten at the break. The U-W shot 53-percent in the third quarter to trail by ten going into the final period, but turnovers hurt the Badgers all night as they committed 22 of them — allowing Northwestern to score 20 points off those miscues. Nia Coffey had 15 points and ten rebounds for the Wildcats — who improved to 6-3 in the Big Ten and 17-5 overall while Cayla McMorris led Wisconsin with eleven points and eight boards.

 

>>Badgers Load Up On Receivers, Offensive Linemen In Signing Day

(Madison, WI)  —  The Wisconsin football team is loading up on receivers and offensive linemen. The Badgers acquired 19 scholarship players during Wednesday’s National Signing Day, and 40-percent of those were wideouts and linemen. The U-W picked up four receivers including Springfield, Ohio standout Danny Davis who chose the Badgers on Wednesday while rejecting offers from West Virginia and Kentucky. Wisconsin had concerns with depth on the offensive line last season, but it now has 14 scholarship players on the “O” line after signing four Wednesday — three of whom played their high school football in the Badger State. The U-W also added ten walk ons.

>>Badgers Remain Tied For Big Ten Lead After Win At Illinois

(Champaign, IL)  —  Wisconsin remains tied with Maryland for the Big Ten men’s basketball lead, both at 8-1 after the Badgers won at Illinois 57-43 Tuesday night. Wisconsin jumped out to a 16-2 lead and never trailed, although the Illini got to within six midway through the second half. Eight Badgers scored, led by Ethan Happ with 14 points and 13 rebounds as the U-W outshot Illinois 41-to-28-percent. Malcolm Hill and Maverick Morgan each had ten points for Illinois, which lost to the U-W for the eleventh straight time and fell to 3-7 in the Big Ten and 13-10 overall — and the tenth ranked U-W improved its overall mark to 19-3. Tonight (Wednesday), the Marquette men play at Saint John’s while the Badger women are at Northwestern.

 

>>Bucks Open Western Road Trip At Utah

(Salt Lake City, UT)  —  The Milwaukee Bucks will start a three game Western road trip tonight (Wednesday) in Salt Lake City, where they’ll take on the Utah Jazz. The Bucks are in their worst slump of the season, losing three straight and eight of their last nine — and they’ll play a Jazz team that has won 14 straight home games against the Bucks, dating back to October of 2001. Center Greg Monroe says Milwaukee has fallen behind early in too many games lately. The Bucks have trailed by more than ten points at halftime in each of their last three outings — including last Saturday when the Bucks lost to Boston in overtime by four points at home. The Jazz have also struggled lately, dropping three of four including a 102-95 loss to Memphis last Saturday.

 

>>GM Says Brewers Should Have Enough Middle Infield Depth

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Milwaukee Brewers’ general manager David Stearns says the team should have enough depth around the infield, after claiming Ehire Adrianza off waivers from San Francisco. Stearns says the 27-year-old Adrianza plays solid defense at the various infield spots, and his versatility is a plus. He joins four other second basemen and shortstops on the Milwaukee roster — Scooter Gennett, Yadiel Rivera, Orlando Arcia, and Major League stolen base champion Jonathan Villar. Hernan Perez also fills in at the middle infield spots, among others. Adrianza is a career .220 hitter with a .292 on base percentage in 154 big league games — and the Giants designated him for assignment to create a roster spot for free agent catcher Nick Hundley. The Brewers made room for Adrianza on their 40 man roster by designating reliever Rob Scahill for assignment.

 

>>Starr Hopes To Return To Lambeau This Fall

(Green Bay, WI) — Green Bay Packers’ 1960s quarterback Bart Starr hopes to return to Lambeau Field for a game this fall. The 83-year-old legend stole the show in 2015 when he met Brett Favre on the field at a Thanksgiving night game while Favre had his retired Number Four unveiled on the stadium facade. Starr has had numerous bacterial infections following a second round of experimental stem cell treatments last summer to help him recover from strokes, seizures, and a heart attack from 2014. But the Green Bay Press Gazette says Starr has been stable since last November — and his son Bart Junior says he father gets a big benefit from visiting the city where he played and lived for more than 30 years. His family hopes to get Starr to a Packers’ game in September or October.

>>Bucks Coach: Don’t Expect Too Much From Middleton Right Away

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Milwaukee Bucks’ coach Jason Kidd warns not to expect too much from Khris Middleton right away. The team’s leading scorer is due to return sometime around mid February, after being out all season with a torn left hamstring. The Bucks can use a boost after losing eight of their last nine, but they’re still in the hunt for an Eastern Conference playoff spot — just one and one half games behind Charlotte for the eighth and final slot. Kidd says Middleton is “not the answer,” just “a piece of the puzzle” — and the most important thing is to make sure he’s comfortable whenever he decides to come back without feeling the pressure to answer all of the Bucks’ problems. Milwaukee is 21-26 with eight games before the N-B-A All Star break starting tomorrow (Wednesday) night at Utah.

 

>>UW Men Play at Illinois, Brown Looks To Recover Shooting

(Champaign, IL)  —  After moving into the national Top Ten, the Wisconsin men’s basketball team looks for its sixth straight victory tonight (Tuesday) when it plays at Illinois. The Badgers remain tied with Maryland for the Big Ten Conference lead at 7-1, one half game ahead of Northwestern — and the U-W has won 14 of its last 15 games, with an overall mark of 18-3. On Monday, the Badgers moved into the Number nine spot in the national coaches’ poll and tenth in the media poll. They’ll face an Illinois team that’s 3-6 in the conference and 13-9 overall. Badgers’ senior forward Vitto Brown will try to get his shooting touch back after missing all eight of his shots from the floor in last Saturday’s overtime victory against Rutgers — but Brown did make three of four free throws and had seven rebounds and three blocked shots.

 

>>D3 Hoops Polls: River Falls Men Move Up To Fourth

(Undated) — U-W River Falls has moved up one spot to Number four in the new Division Three men’s basketball poll from “D” Three Hoops Dot Com. The Falcons are 8-0 in the W-I-A-C with a 16 game overall winning streak, and they have not lost since November 19th against Hope College of Michigan. Saint Norbert is back in the men’s Top Ten, rising three spots to tenth this week — and Whitewater rose three spots to 21st while Eau Claire fell eight places to 25th, as Babson remains at Number One. In the “D” Three women’s poll, Oshkosh fell one spot to 16th and Whitewater dropped two places to 19th. Tufts is still the women’s Number One.

 

>>Admirals’ Carrier Helps Central Division Win AHL All Star Challenge

(Allentown, PA)  —  Milwaukee Admirals’ defenseman Alex Carrier helps the Central Division win its second straight American Hockey League All Star Challenge. Carrier played in all three of the division’s ten minute round robin contests Monday night, and the six minute championship game in which the Central topped the Atlantic Division in a 1-0 shootout in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Matt Lorito scored the only goal in the title contest in the fourth round of the shootout. Carrier did not score throughout the night, and he had five shots in the preliminary contests but none in the final.
