Phoenix men host Saturday matinee vs. Oakland

The Green Bay Phoenix men's basketball team will go from prime time to lunchtime with its Saturday matchup against Oakland thanks to the Packers.

 

The Phoenix beat Detroit-Mercy on Thursday 70-63 thanks to 16 points from Cade Meyer and two other players reaching double figures. The Golden Grizzlies are coming off a 88-77 loss to Milwaukee. 

 

Due to the Packers playoff game, the game was moved earlier this week to the Kress Events Center for a noon start.

 

In other Green Bay athletics news, the Phoenix women have rescheduled their matchups against Milwaukee, which were scheduled for this weekend but COVID issues within the Panthers program postponed them. The two teams will meet on February 7th in Green Bay and on February 21st in Milwaukee. Both games will tip off at 7 p.m.

Second period catapults Gamblers past Steel

The Green Bay Gamblers used a big second period to beat the league-leading Chicago Steel 5-3 in Geneva, Ill. Friday night.

 

Down 1-0 after the first period, Cameron  Lund, Matt Deboer, and Damien Carfagna each scored goals in the second period to give the Gamblers a lead they would not surrender. The two teams traded goals in the third period with Sawyer Scholl and John Mittelstadt scoring the first and third goals of the period for the Gamblers. The Gamblers' defense may have been the biggest story of the night, limiting the high-flying Steel offense to just 20 shots. Aaron Randazzo picked up the win as he stopped 17 of those shots.

 

The Gamblers take their roadshow west as they settle in Dubuque for a single game Saturday night at 7:05 p.m. The Fighting Saints lost their matchup to Cedar Rapids 4-1.

Gamblers get another crack at Chicago Friday

The Green Bay Gamblers get an opportunity to take an advantage in their season series advantage in Geneva, Ill. Friday when they travel to take on the Chicago Steel. 

 

The Gamblers and the Steel have split their last four matchups with the Gamblers taking the last one 6-5 in overtime. Head coach Pat Mikesch is proud of how his team has performed against the league's top team with 46 points and four of the USHL's top scorers. The Gamblers were able to score four points of their own last weekend with an impressive 6-3 win over the Team USA U-18 squad before a pair of overtime losses to second-place Muskegon.

 

Friday's game begins at 7 p.m.

 

 

Phoenix men become full against Detroit-Mercy

The Green Bay Phoenix men's basketball team had its full roster and it showed in their 70-63 win over Detroit-Mercy Thursday night at the Resch Center.

 

The Phoenix led almost the entire game until the Titans' Antoine Davis hit a three-pointer to take the lead. In other games this season, that is when the Phoenix would have folded. Instead, Donovan Ivory led the comeback where his own three-pointer with just over six minutes left to put the Phoenix up for good. The sophomore transfer put up all 13 of his points in the second half while Cade Meyer led the Phoenix with 16 points. Davis led all scorers with 25 points in the loss for Detroit, which will have to wait until next year for its first win at Green Bay in a decade.

 

The Phoenix are back in action on Saturday when they play Oakland. The game has been moved to a noon start at the Kress Center due to the Packers game.

Bucks set to face injury stricken Bulls

The Milwaukee Bucks are getting set to host the Chicago Bulls on Friday night in Eastern Conference play. 

 

The Bucks are coming off of a 12 point victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday and are looking to stay in the win column in their second game of a three game homestand. The Bulls are coming off of a 11 point loss to the Cavaliers, and will be without PG Lonzo Ball due to a meniscus tear in his knee, as well as G Zach Lavine who is also nursing a knee injury.

 

Giannis has once again been great for the Bucks this season averaging 28.6 points per game, and Grayson Allen has been making his presence felt shooting 39% from beyond the arc while averaging 12 points per game on 2.7 made 3’s per game. On the other side of the ball Demar DeRozan has stepped up in the absence of Ball and Lavine and is averaging 25.7 points per game. 

 

Tip is set for 7:00 p.m. from the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee

Phoenix women battle in-state rival COVID-19 Friday

An in-state grudge match was supposed to take place at the Kress Events Center Friday and the Klotsche Center Sunday, but COVID-19 had other ideas.

 

Green Bay and Milwaukee have called off their home-and-home set this weekend due to COVID-19 protocols within the Panthers program. The Phoenix will try to find a new opponent and while the Panthers will look to declare the game a no-contest.

 

It is nothing new for the Phoenix, who have played just twice since a December 20th win against Central Michigan. This marks games six and seven that have been impacted due to COVID-19 within their own program and others. Barring more issues with COVID-19, the Phoenix will play next weekend at Wright State and Northern Kentucky and host their first home games in over a month on February 3rd against Youngstown State. 

Phoenix men welcome Detroit Mercy

The Green Bay Phoenix men continue their homestand Thursday night when they welcome Detroit Mercy to the Resch Center.

 

The Phoenix should be in better shape roster wise this week after health and safety protocols trimmed their team to just seven players for a squad that rotates a few more players than that. They were able to beat IUPUI on Thursday, but ran tired in its lost against UIC.

 

The Titans have lost their last two conference games by a combined four points after jumping out to a 3-0 start in the Horizon League with wins over  IUPUI (69-45), UIC (64-56), and Milwaukee (85-60). The two teams did not meet earlier this year when the Phoenix were dealing with COVID-19 issues within the program.

 

Thursday's game begins at 7 p.m.

Voyageurs sail away?

Green Bay soccer fans may be up a creek without a paddle when it comes to supporting a local team.

 

The Green Bay Voyageurs were excluded from a team announcement on the USL League Two Twitter feed on Wednesday featuring Central Conference teams. The Heartland Division, where the Voyageurs had played the last two seasons, is the only one with an uneven number of teams. The tweet sparked conversation among supporters of the team wondering about the fate of their club.

 

Wisconsin Soccer Central tweeted that sources have not heard the organization inquiring about joining other leagues and that its Chief Operating Officer Conor Caloia would be making an announcement about the team's future next week. 

 

The Green Bay Voyageurs aren't listed here, and sources said they hadn't heard of the team looking into joining the NPSL, UPSL or MWPL. Via email, Big Top Sports and Entertainment COO Conor Caloia said an announcement about the team's future will be made next week. #wisoccer https://t.co/JoCodAX7Fm

Brewers complete 2022 coaching staff

The MLB is currently in a lockout, but some news has come out of Milwaukee that the Brewers have hired a new bullpen coach, as well as a new assistant infield and hitting coach. 

 

Jim Henderson has been selected as the new Brewers bullpen coach. Henderson is a familiar face in Milwaukee having played for the Brewers from 2012-14. Henderson has been a pitching coach in the Brewers minor league system for the last four years, most recently at the Triple-A level. 

 

The Brewers hired another former player to be their assistant infield and hitting coach in Matt Erickson. Erickson played for the Brewers in 2004 and has spent time coaching or managing the Brewers Class A affiliate the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers for the last 13 years. 

 

Given that the current work stoppage would end before the season gets underway, the Brewers are expected to open their 2022 season on March 31st against the Arizona Diamondbacks from American Family Field in Milwaukee.

Green Bay Glory prepares for upcoming season

The Green Bay Glory took another step towards their inaugural year in the USL W League with another round of tryouts last week.

 

The Glory hosted their third and final round of tryouts last week with over a dozen women participating. The team features the highest level of amateur competition to the top female soccer players in Green Bay and surrounding areas.

 

The 2022 schedule is still in the process of being set with 30 teams chartered for the inaugural USL W League, which will kickoff in May.

Gamblers' Carfagna scores game-winner in All-Star Game

A representative from the Green Bay Gamblers was responsible for a big exclamation mark during the 2022 Bio-Steel All American Game on Monday.

 

With just over two minutes remaining in overtime, Gambler defensemen Damien Carfagna scored the game-winner to complete the 4-3 comeback for Team Blue. The game acted as the USHL's All-Star game featuring the top 44 American-born, draft-eligible players in the country.  The Gamblers' Nicholas VanTassell and Cameron Lund also participated in the game. 

 

After going 1-0-2 last weekend, the Gambler's road trip continues this weekend at Chicago and Dubuque this Friday and Saturday respectively.

Green Bay/Oakland game likely to get moved

The Green Bay Phoenix men's basketball game on Saturday against Oakland will likely not take place as currently scheduled.

 

Their matchup against the Golden Grizzlies is on the calendar as a 6 p.m. tip at the Resch Center. An hour later, the Packers are now scheduled to take on the 49ers a block away from Lambeau Field. 

 

Scott Venci of the Green Bay Press-Gazette tweeted on Sunday that head coach Will Ryan says the game would be moved if the game was played on Saturday that their matchup would not only go to a much earlier noon tip, but also to the Kress Events Center.

 

 

 

The Green Bay Athletics Department has made such concessions in the past, including a 2015 matchup against Minnesota Duluth to avoid a Packers/Vikings night game.

Packers to take on 49ers on Saturday night

Monday Night Football means nothing for the Green Bay Packers.

 

The San Francisco 49ers were able to hold on against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday 23-17, sending them to Lambeau Field on Saturday for its game against the Green Bay Packers. The NFL later announced the game would take place at 7:15 p.m.

 

The 49ers have had the upper hand on the Packers in recent playoff history. In 2019, Jimmy Garoppolo only threw the ball three times but Raheem Mostert ran for 220 yards as the 49ers won 37-20. Colin Kaepernick led the 49ers to a pair of playoff wins earlier in the decade, compiling approximately 800 yards of total offense in the process. The last playoff win for the Packers against the 49ers was a Brett Favre-led 25-15 win in 2001 at Lambeau Field.

 

The Packers have won the last two games in the series, including a 30-28 victory in San Francisco earlier this season.

Gamblers drop second straight overtime game

For a second straight game, the Green Bay Gamblers saw their hopes for two points dashed in an extra period as they fell to the Muskegon Lumberjacks 2-1 in overtime Sunday.

 

Brody Lamb scored the first and only goal of the game for the Gamblers just four minutes into the game only to be matched by the Lumberjacks' Philip Tresca five minutes later. Quinn Hutson scored the game-winner in overtime with just over a minute remaining.

 

Aaron Randazzo sparkled in the net Sunday, stopping 38 of the 40 shots he faced. 

Bucks drop Eastern Conference matchup to Raptors

The Milwaukee Bucks were not able to contain the Toronto Raptors as they overcame a 15 point deficit to defeat Milwaukee 103-96. 

 

Giannis Antetokounmpo posted 30 points and was 17/17 from the free throw line. Grayson Allen was the next highest scorer with 18 points, and Khris Middleton added 16. 

 

The Raptors got a big game out of their superstar with Pascal Siakam posting his second career triple double with 30 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists. 

 

The Bucks will next take on the Hawks on Sunday with tip set for 5:00 p.m. 

Gamblers let first game in Muskegon slip away

The Green Bay Gamblers scored the game's first three goals only to see that lead disappear into a 4-3 overtime loss to the Muskegon Lumberjacks Saturday night.

 

Ryan Greene and Sawyer Scholl scored their two goals within two minutes of each other to stake the Gamblers to a 2-0 lead. Jackson Hallum would score 12 seconds into the second period, but it was all Lumberjacks after that as they would score two goals in the second period before tying it up in the third period. Jack Williams' second goal of the night was the fatal blow that sent the Gamblers back to their hotel with only one of the two points they were looking for.

 

They will have another opportunity Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m. when they play the Lumberjacks for the second time this weekend.

Phoenix flame out against UIC

The Green Bay Phoenix men's basketball team was short-handed for a second night but did not fare well against UIC in its 80-63 loss Saturday evening at the Resch.

 

Kamari McGee turned in yet another strong performance with 23 points while fellow freshman Cade Meyer chipped in 15. It was not going to be enough from the get-go however as the Flames started out hot from the field, jumping out to a 15-5 lead less than six minutes into the game. They would later stretch that lead to 22 points, only to have the Phoenix cut it to 12 points with 12:23 to go. A 10-0 run by the Flames ended hope for the Phoenix, giving their visitors from Chicago their last laugh in Green Bay before they depart the Horizon League for the Missouri Valley Conference.

 

The Phoenix will host Detroit Mercy on Thursday at 7 p.m. and Oakland at 6 p.m. on Saturday next weekend. 

 

Phoenix men look to build off win versus UIC

The Green Bay Phoenix men's basketball team could get their second win of the weekend and the fourth of the season on Saturday when UIC visits the Resch Center Saturday.

 

The team only had seven players available on Thursday, but it was enough to beat IUPUI 69-54. Donovan Ivory returned to the line-up to score 19 points off the bench to lead all Phoenix scorers with Randy Tucker scoring 17 and Kamari McGee adding 12 fresh off his Horizon League Freshman of the Week win. It was the first time the Phoenix had tasted victory since it beat Robert Morris in December.

 

The Flames came back from a seven-point halftime deficit to stun Milwaukee 81-77 Thursday thanks to 28 points from Kevin Johnson.

 

Tip is set for 6 p.m.

Bucks look to stay hot vs. Raptors

The Milwaukee Bucks will host the Toronto Raptors in Eastern Conference play on Saturday night. 

 

The Bucks come in posting a record of 27-17, while the Raptors are 20-18. The Bucks are 14-7 this season at home, and Giannis Antetokounmpo is coming off a triple double in his last game against the Warriors, and is looking to lead the Bucks to another win. Giannis is also leading the team in rebounds while point guard Jrue Holiday is leading the team in assists. 

 

The Raptors are led by Fred VanVleet who is averaging 22 points per game, and Scottie Barnes who is averaging 8 rebounds per game. 

 

Tip is set for 5:30 p.m. from the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee.

Deuces wild in Gamblers win over Team USA, Muskegon next

The Green Bay Gamblers scored two goals in each period to get past the Team USA U-18 squad 6-3 in Michigan.

 

Team USA struck first in the first period, only to have four unanswered goals scored by the Gamblers' Ryan Greene and John Mittelstadt in the first and Cameron Lund and Carter Batchelder in the second.

 

Team USA would narrow that lead in third with a pair of goals in the first 10 minutes. The Gamblers would build their lead up again with Nicholas VanTassell answering Cooley's goal 30 seconds later and Alex Servagno scoring the empty netter. Aaron Randazzo marked his return to the lineup with 28 saves on 31 shots faced.

 

The Gamblers will now turn their attention to Muskegon, who beat the U-17 squad for Team USA 7-2. Puck drop is set for 6:10 p.m.

 

 

Phoenix men pick up win over Jags

The Green Bay Phoenix men's basketball team only had seven players available on Thursday, but it was enough to beat IUPUI 69-54 at the Resch Center.

 

COVID-19 issues landed the other half of the team in health and safety protocols almost a week after the same circumstances canceled their weekend of games in the Detroit area. 

 

Donovan Ivory returned to the line-up to score 19 points off the bench to lead all Phoenix scorers with Randy Tucker scoring 17 and Kamari McGee adding 12 fresh off his Horizon League Freshman of the Week win. 

 

It was the first time the Phoenix had tasted victory since it beat Robert Morris in December while the Jaguars continue to search for their first Division 1 win on the season. The Phoenix will return to action on Saturday at 6 p.m. to face UIC.

Gamblers begin Michigan swing with Team USA

The Green Bay Gamblers will start their three-day visit to Michigan battling the country's best in Team USA.

 

The Gamblers split their last two games against the Chicago Steel last weekend at the Resch Center. Jarod Crespo knocked in the game-winner in overtime to lead the Gamblers to the 6-5 victory. Team USA is 2-1 in the month of January, sweeping their hosts in Dubuque 4-2 and 6-5 last weekend.

 

The puck drop is set for 6:05 p.m. The Gamblers will play its other two games against Muskegon on Saturday and Sunday.

Bucks get big win over Warriors

The Milwaukee Bucks were able to beat one of the better teams in the NBA on Thursday night by beating the Golden State Warriors 118-99. 

 

The Bucks got off to a hot start and never trailed as they took a 77-38 lead into the halftime break. Despite being outscored in both second half quarters the Bucks were able to put up enough points of their own to win by 19. Giannis Antetokounmpo posted a triple double with 30 points, 12 rebounds, and 11 assists. Khris Middleton added 23 points, Bobby Portis scored 20, and Grayson Allen had 15 for the Bucks. 

 

The Warriors were led by Andrew Wiggins with 16 points, while Steph Curry and Klay Thompson were held to 12 and 11 points respectively. 

 

The Bucks will be in action again on Saturday as they host the Toronto Raptors with tip set for 5:30 p.m. from the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee.

Green Bay women's basketball out on COVID-19 protocols

he Green Bay Phoenix women's basketball team will see its season come to a temporary halt this weekend due to COVID-19 protocols within the program. 

 

Senior Meghan Pingel was the first player to have to sit out the last seven days when COVID protocols kept her out of the lineup in the Phoenix's blowout victory over UIC. The impact of the virus spread within the program, forcing them to cancel their weekend games against Cleveland State and IPFW.

 

It marks the fourth and fifth games canceled for the Phoenix this season because of COVID-19 protocols, but it makes the first time it was because of their program. Chicago State, Detroit Mercy, and Oakland also had their games against the Phoenix canceled. The Phoenix picked up a forfeit against Detroit while its matchup against Oakland was declared a no-contest. The Phoenix have sought a similar designation for their scheduled games against the Mastodons and Vikings.

 

The Phoenix has not played a home game since its victory over Central Michigan on December 20th and now it will not play one until January 21st when they host in-state rival Milwaukee.

 

This does not affect the status of the men's program, which missed games earlier this month due its own COVID issues. They will still host IUPUI Thursday night at the Resch Center and Saturday against UIC.
