With Khris Middleton out with a knee injury, Grayson Allen has stepped up to score 49 points in the last two games while going 11/14 from the three-point arch. 

 

The Bulls will look to prolong the series with DeMar DeRozan leading Chicago in scoring during the playoffs averaging 23.3 points while Giannis Antetokounmpo leads the Bucks with 27.5 points and 14.5 rebounds per contest.

 

Tipoff at Fiserv Forum is set for 6:30 pm.   If the Bucks win Wednesday, they would play the Boston Celtics in the second round.  Boston swept the Brooklyn Nets in four games earlier this week.

Mikesch, Gamblers to part ways at season's end

The end of the Pat Mikesch era for the Green Bay Gamblers is near.

 

The organization announced on Thursday that the two sides decided to part ways at the season's end.

 

“I would like to thank Pat for his hard work and commitment to the Gamblers these past 11 years,” said Gamblers President Jeff Mitchell. “Pat has a great reputation in the hockey community as a coach and developer of talent. Here he went above and beyond to advance the Gamblers mission to give back and be active in the community. We wish Pat all the best.”

 

“My wife, Aimee, the kids, and I have loved our 11 years in Green Bay,” said Mikesch. I’m very appreciative of the support given to me by the Gamblers, PMI Entertainment Group, and the entire Green Bay community. My family and I look forward to what comes next.”

 

He joined the Gamblers as an assistant 11 years ago and was elevated to head coach and general manager in 2014. A national search for his replacement is underway.

 

The Gamblers will play two games in Illinois against the Chicago Steel on Friday and Saturday before returning home to play the Muskegon Lumberjacks on Sunday. You can catch that game and all home games on 104.1 WRLU and NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com

Brewers open season at Wrigley Field Thursday

The Milwaukee Brewers will hope the Friendly Confines are all that and then some Thursday afternoon when they open the 2022 campaign against the Chicago Cubs.

 

Cy Young Award winner Corbin Burnes will take the mound for the Brewers as they look to win their second straight division crown. Burnes dominated the Cubs in his starts last year as the Brewers won 15 of their 19 matchups against the North Siders last year. They will be countered Kyle Hendricks who flummoxed the Brewers on Opening Day in 2020.

 

The Brewers did sign a former Cub to the roster on Wednesday, adding catcher Victor Caratini to the roster.

Bucks trample Bulls

The Milwaukee Bucks led virtually from start to finish as they crushed the Chicago Bulls at Fiserv Forum Tuesday night.

    

The Bucks controlled the game from the start outscoring the Bulls in both the first and second quarter by six points to take a 58-46 lead at halftime.

 

Brook Lopez had his best game of the year for the Bucks with 26 points and seven rebounds, while Giannis Antetokounmpo added 18 points with nine rebounds.  Kris Middleton finished with 19 points.

     

The Bulls (45-34), currently 6th in the Eastern Conference, were led by DeMar DeRozan with 40 points. 

 

Milwaukee (49-30) will now host the Boston Celtics on Wednesday at 6:30 pm from Fiserv Forum.    

Brewers top Royals in exhibition finale, open with Cubs Wednesday

he Milwaukee Brewers topped the Kansas City Royals 5-4 on Wednesday in the final Cactus League game on Tuesday afternoon in Arizona. 

 

The Brewers (7-9) jumped to a 2-0 lead on a two-run home run by Brent Diaz in the bottom of the second inning.  Keston Hiura added two more runs with a two-RBI single in the third inning to give the Brewers a 4-0 lead.  Kansas City answered with four runs in the top of the eighth inning but the Brewers scored on an RBI single by Terence Doston in the bottom of the inning to regain the lead and hang on for the victory.

 

Starting pitcher Adrian Houser hurled six scoreless innings allowing only two hits and striking out four.  Jake Cousins pitched a perfect ninth inning striking out two to pick up the save.

Green Bay's McGee enters transfer portal

Another day, another big piece of the Green Bay basketball team entered his name into the transfer portal on Monday.

 

Several outlets reported Monday that Kamari McGee would be entering the transfer portal, most likely ending his time with the Phoenix. The Racine-product was a star for the Phoenix, earning All-Freshman Team honors in the Horizon League alongside Cade Meyer. An injury to Lucas Steiber, who also entered the transfer portal earlier this year, gave McGee control of the offense for much of the second half of the season. He told the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Scott Venci that he wanted to play on the biggest stage possible and only thought about transferring in the recent days.

 

It continued a disturbing trend for the Phoenix, which has already seen at least five other players leave the program since the season ended in March. Only five players remain with the program. Green Bay lost a similar number of players to the transfer portal at the end of 2021. 

Mother Nature to baseball and softball teams: Not yet

Many local baseball and softball teams will have to wait a few more days before getting their first game action of the season.

 

Every softball and baseball scheduled for Monday were either postponed or canceled due to the morning dose of winter weather that was followed in some cases by some rain. That has led to several games being preemptively canceled or postponed for Tuesday. Those games include:

 

  • Sturgeon Bay at Kewaunee (baseball and softball)
  • Gibraltar at NEW Lutheran (baseball and softball)
  • Southern Door at Sevastopol (baseball and softball)

Luxemburg-Casco softball's game against Wrightstown has not been formally canceled or postponed yet according to the Northeastern Conference. That game is scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m.

Mother Nature to weigh in on Monday's baseball and softball slate

With rain and snow in the forecast for the region Monday morning, the area's baseball and softball teams will have to wait and see if they get to play.

 

Baseball games scheduled for Monday include Gibraltar hosting Sheboygan Lutheran at 4:30 p.m. and Luxemburg-Casco playing at home at the same time against Denmark.

 

Scheduled softball action includes Algoma visiting Luxemburg-Casco at 4:30 p.m.

Local baseball, softball games in question for Thursday

Games are on the schedule for local baseball and softball teams, but many are either postponed or waiting to get postponed.

 

A matchup between Luxemburg-Casco and Southern Door earlier this week was postponed.

 

Thursday softball games that have already been rescheduled include Kewaunee vs. Chilton (moved to April 30th) and a scrimmage between Sevastopol and St. Thomas Aquinas. A matchup between Luxemburg-Casco and Valders at 4:30 p.m. is still on the schedule.

 

Thursday baseball action on the schedule includes Kewaunee hosting Omro at 4:30 p.m. and Luxemburg-Casco facing St. Mary Catholic in a scrimmage.

 

A Winter Weather Advisory is expected to expire at noon will most likely force the remaining games for Thursday to be either postponed or canceled. 

Brewers fall to Padres, face Angels Thursday

The San Diego Padres scored the game's first four runs and held on to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2.

 

Manny Machado's third-inning home run was the game's big blow, driving in former Brewers outfielder Trent Grisham. Matt Beaty and Grisham knocked in the other two runs for the Padres. 


The Brewers got on the scoreboard when Weston Wilson tripled home Joe Gray Jr. in the seventh inning before he was driven in by Joey Wiemer.

 

Freddy Peralta took the loss giving up three runs (two earned) on six hits through four innings. 

 

The Brewers are back in action Thursday afternoon when they face the Los Angles Angels of Anaheim at 3:10 p.m. Eric Lauer is scheduled to start against the Angels' Shohei Ohtani. 

Woodruff roughed up in Brewer loss to Cleveland

The Milwaukee Brewers dropped a Cactus League game to the Cleveland Guardians 10-3 on Tuesday afternoon.  Scoring  three runs in the top of the third inning, the Brewers were outscored 10-0 the rest of the way.  

 

Brewer starter Brandon Woodruff had a rough outing giving up seven hits in three innings, including three home runs. 

 

Managing on only six hits, the Brewers' Pedro Severino had two hits to lead the Milwaukee attack.  

 

Milwaukee (4-5) will now play the San Diego Padres on Wednesday with opening day only about a week away.   

Bucks top Sixers with big fourth quarter

In a battle of two of the top three teams in the Eastern Conference Tuesday night, the Milwaukee Bucks nipped the Philadelphia 76ers 118-116 in Philadelphia.  

 

The Bucks jumped to an eleven point lead early and had a 27-24 after one quarter.  The Sixers responded by outscoring the Bucks 37-24 in the second quarter to take a 61-51 lead into halftime.  

 

The Sixers lead by as much as 14 points in the second half, but the Bucks rallied to capture the lead midway through the fourth quarter and set up the dramatic finish.

 

The Bucks led by two points when Joel Embiid put back a missed shot with 1.6 seconds left that was initially called goaltending against Giannis Antekounmpo and would have tied the game at 108.  The call was overturned and the 76ers were unable to get a shot off after a jump ball at midcourt.  

 

The game saw 13 lead changes that may be a preview of an Eastern Conference finals.

 

Antekounmpo scored 40 points with 14 rebounds to lead the Bucks, while James Harden paced the Sixers (46-29) with 32 and Embiid added 29.

 

The Bucks (47-28) wll now travel to Brooklyn to play the Nets on Thursday night.

Packers denied NFL Draft hosting duties

You will not see the Titletown District turn into NFL Draft City USA anytime soon.

 

League officials announced on Monday that the City of Green Bay would not be hosting the 2024 NFL Draft, instead handing the duties to Detroit. The Packers and the city had been previously mentioned as potentially a host for the event.  

 

FROM PACKERS.COM

"The Packers and the event's community supporters remain optimistic that Green Bay will have the opportunity to host the NFL Draft in the near future," said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. "We will continue to work with Discover Green Bay and our other partners in the effort to update our bid details and continue our dialogue with NFL officials so they remain excited about our community's plan to host this significant event. The NFL Draft would draw fans to the area from around the country and proudly display the NFL's storied history to football fans around the world, while highlighting the uniqueness of Green Bay."

 

The announcement was made on the first day of the NFL meetings in Florida. Brian Gutekunst met with the media where he discussed the likelihood of the Davante Adams saga ending in a trade, the likelihood of Jaire Alexander becoming a do-it-all corner, and their recent signings.

Gamblers give up 10 in loss to Team USA U-18

The peaking Team USA U-18 squad took it to the Green Bay Gamblers on Sunday, winning the game 10-1.

 

Less than a month out from the 2022 IIHF Under-18 Men's World Championship in Kaufbeuren and Landshut, Germany, from April 21-May 1, 2022, Team USA put up four goals in the first and third periods on their way to the rout of the Gamblers. Eleven different players scored multiple points for Team USA, led by Charlie Stramel (2G, 1A) and Rutger McGroaty (1G, 3A).

Blizzard's chance for win sails right

The Green Bay Blizzard saw their chance to get their season's first victory go just wide as they fell to the Bismarck Bucks 29-27 on Sunday.

 

Torrance Gibson opened the scoring for the Blizzard with an 11-yard touchdown pass, but they would be held scoreless until late in the third. Meanwhile, the Bucks scored 23 consecutive points, including three throws for scores from quarterback Jayru Campbell.

 

The Blizzard would finally eat away at the deficit when Gibson found Steven Newbold at the end of the third quarter and Dez Stewart at the beginning of the fourth quarter to bring the team back to within a field goal. Mason Gray would give the Blizzard a 26-23 lead when he picked off Campbell in the endzone and took it the other way for the score. Campbell would have the last laugh when Ben Glines caught his five-yard pass with just six seconds left on the clock. Nick Jarwoski's kick to end the game was no good, sending the Blizzard to their second straight loss.

 

The Blizzard will try for their first win against this Saturday in Des Moines when they take on the Iowa Barnstormers.

Luke Weilandt and Lund would close out the game with goals for the Gamblers to send them to their first win in two weeks. Rastislav Elias registered 31 saves on 33 shots seen.
