Knight playing like an All-Star, but will he be one?

ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- The last time Milwaukee had a representative at the NBA All-Star Game, the likes of Daniel Santiago, Brian Skinner, Joe Smith and Damon Jones donned Bucks uniforms. It has been 11 years since Michael Redd made his lone All-Star Game appearance, which was also the last by a member of the Bucks. Brandon Knight has put together a first half capable of ending Milwaukee...

Gov. Walker proposes bonds plan to help fund Bucks arena

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says the state will help the Milwaukee Bucks pay for a new basketball arena with $220 million in bonds that would be paid for by projected growth in income taxes from NBA players. Walker said Tuesday the "Pay Their Way" proposal would protect the state's taxpayers, while keeping the team in Milwaukee. A new arena could cost roughly $500...

Badgers' Koenig embraces being role model for Native American community

MADISON, Wis. -- A group of about 20 boys sat across three rows of chairs inside a small conference room at a Nebraska Holiday Inn last March, rapt by the words coming from the man up front wearing his white Wisconsin Badgers warmup shirt. He was just a few years older, still a baby-face with a buzz cut, and yet he was worlds away on a path many seated there could only dream about...

Packers sign punter Mandell

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Tim Masthay's career-worst season isn't being overlooked by the Green Bay Packers. There will be competition at the punter position in 2015 after the Packers signed Cody Mandell on Monday. Mandell, who went undrafted in 2014 out of Alabama, spent time with the Dallas Cowboys in training camp this past season. After beginning his college career as a walk-on, Mandell...

Notebook: Badgers enjoy rare breather in middle of Big Ten slate

MADISON, Wis. -- During the lengthy grind of the Big Ten men's basketball schedule, there are few opportunities for breathers. So when they arrive, it's best to take advantage as much as possible. That's the scenario Wisconsin faces early this week. UW (18-2, 5-1) does not play a game for a span of seven days until squaring off at Iowa (13-7, 4-3) on Saturday. It marks the Badgers...

Packers RT Bulaga could be in demand on free-agent market

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It was widely regarded as the best offensive line that the Green Bay Packers have had in Aaron Rodgers' time as starting quarterback. But one of the key pieces of this season's offensive line, right tackle Bryan Bulaga, is six weeks away from unrestricted free agency. Bulaga, the Packers' 2010 first-round pick, is coming off a productive season in which he was...

Badgers' Brown trying to make most of whatever minutes he gets

MADISON, Wis. -- There are instances on the basketball court in which Vitto Brown looks every bit the player he is capable of becoming, someone with athleticism and toughness who can convert a tough layup in traffic or swish a mid-range jumper with ease. The problem for Brown, a sophomore who is still learning the game in Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan's system, are those other instances...

Chryst mending in-state recruiting fences

MADISON, Wis. -- Upon close examination, there are two ways Wisconsin football fans can view the Badgers' 2015 recruiting class. One is to see Wisconsin has 25 commitments that collectively could constitute the highest-ranked Badgers group since Internet rankings began in the early 2000s. The other is to see how few of those recruits hail from within the state's borders. Former Badgers...

Injured Rodgers carries Packers to win with special performance

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Aaron Rodgers never expected his left calf to be completely healthy for Sunday's game. He realized very early on that he couldn't do as much as normal. Rodgers was in some pain, and that made certain movements more difficult for him. With the Green Bay Packers' season on the line in their divisional-round matchup with the Dallas Cowboys, none of that mattered for...

How they voted: Badgers in 2014 AP basketball poll (Week 9)

Wisconsin remained at No. 4 in the latest Associated Press Top 25 poll gaining all of 2 votes in the process. OK, it really should be more than 2 since one person didn't turn in a ballot, costing Wisconsin likely 22 or 23 points (Aaron Brenner had Wisconsin at No. 4 the previous week). The Badgers remained at the same spot on many ballots, but did move up on a few, including 3 places...

Notebook: McEvoy without a position but proves he belongs on field

TAMPA, Fla. -- The way Tanner McEvoy sees it, he's a man without a position. But given the way McEvoy performed during Wisconsin's 34-31 overtime victory against Auburn on Thursday at Raymond James Stadium, he may already have his answer. McEvoy played sparingly in his role as the team's backup quarterback, as he has for the latter part of this season. However, he played his first...
