You can celebrate the New Year between a pair of Green Bay Gamblers games at the Resch Center this weekend.

Badgers look to end the season on a high note vs. Sun Devils

The Wisconsin Badgers football team will look to close the season out strong with a win over the Arizona State Sun Devils in the 2021 Las Vegas Bowl from Allegiant Stadium. 

The Wisconsin Badgers qualified for bowl play by winning 8 games this year, defeating 4 bowl eligible teams in that span. The Badgers also tallied 4 losses on the year, all of which were to teams who made bowl games. Graham Mertz has struggled as the Badgers QB this season, but the defense, along with the emergence of Freshman Braelon Allen has more than made up for the less than stellar offensive season from Mertz. 

 

Herm Edwards has reached his third bowl game as the coach of the Sun Devils, however this season they have only beat one bowl eligible team (UCLA), and their four losses all came against teams that didn’t qualify for bowl games. If that isn’t worrisome enough for Arizona State, their leading rusher Rachaad White who rushed for 1,006 yards and 15 touchdowns this season has opted out of playing in the Las Vegas Bowl. The Arizona State defense also allows 20.9 points per game which ties them for 20th in the nation. 

 

Wisconsin has had some issues with positive COVID tests appearing within the program, but as of now it will not prohibit Wisconsin from having enough players to play the game. 

 

Kickoff is set for 9:30 PM CT from Allegiant Stadium.

Wrestling round-up: L-C in 2nd at Bi-State; Southern Door, Packerland teams compete On the Water

Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol is in 62nd place with 12 points and just three wrestlers competing. Zak Wrobel and Ben Roman each picked up victories.

 

Southern Door is tied with Menasha in 30th place at OTW with 62 points. Hayden Jeanquart and Brodie Overbeck ended their days with victories.

 

Luxemburg-Casco finished Wednesday just a half-point behind Minnesota's Zumbrota-Mazeppa in the Division 2 standings at the Bi-State Classic being held at the LaCrosse Center. Caleb Delebreau and Max Ronsman each won their quarterfinal matches while Easton Worachek, Ryan Routhieaux, Hunter Joniaux, and Jake Jandrin will start Thursday in the wrestle back rounds.

Brewers announce Walk of Fame Inductees

Three players crucial to the rebirth of the Brewers in Milwaukee will be enshrined at American Family Field this summer.

 

Ryan Braun and Jonathan Lucroy will join the Brewers Wall of Honor and Prince Fielder will be enshrined into the Brewers Walk of Fame. Additionally, the Brewers and the Milwaukee Braves Historical Association will induct the late Wes Covington onto the Milwaukee Braves Wall of Honor. 

 

Ceremonies will be announced at a later date. Below are the resumes that earned Fielder, Braun, Lucroy, and Covington the recognition provided by the Brewers' organization:

 

Fielder, drafted seventh overall by Milwaukee in 2002, spent seven of his 12 Major League seasons with the Brewers (2005-11) and batted .282 with 230 HR and 656 RBI in 998 games. A three-time All-Star in Milwaukee (2007, 2009 and 2011), he is the all-time franchise leader in on-base percentage (.390), slugging percentage (.540) and OPS (.929) and is among the franchise leaders in HR (3rd), walks (4th, 566), extra-base hits (6th, 439), RBI (7th), total bases (8th, 1,904), runs (9th, 571) and batting average (10th).
 
The power-hitting first baseman is the only player in franchise history to produce five consecutive 30+ homer seasons (2007-11). In 2007 – his second full season in the majors – Fielder became the youngest player in Major League history to reach 50 homers in a season (23 years, 139 days), breaking the record set by Hall of Famer Willie Mays (24 years, 137 days). A fierce competitor, he missed just one game over his final three seasons in Milwaukee.

 

Braun, the all-time franchise home run leader, six-time All-Star and 2011 National League MVP, played his entire 14-year Major League career with the Milwaukee Brewers from 2007-20 and is among the franchise leaders in nearly every offensive category.
 
Braun finished his career as a .296 hitter with 352 HR, 1,154 RBI and 216 stolen bases in 1,766 games. In addition to his MVP and All-Star Game appearances, Braun was a five-time Silver Slugger Award winner and the 2007 National League Rookie of the Year.
 
Braun, who helped lead the Brewers to the postseason five times (2008, 2011 and 2018-20), retired as the all-time franchise leader in home runs. He also ranks among the franchise’s top three in RBI (2nd), slugging percentage (2nd, .532), OPS (2nd, .891), extra-base hits (2nd, 809), total bases (2nd, 3,525), doubles (2nd, 408), runs (3rd, 1,080), hits (3rd, 1,963), triples (3rd, 49), stolen bases (3rd, 216), at-bats (3rd, 6,622), and walks (3rd, 586). He ranks fourth in franchise history in games played and batting average.
 
From the date of his Major League debut – May 25, 2007 – through the 2020 season, Braun ranked among the top five in the majors in extra-base hits (T2nd), runs (3rd), RBI (3rd), total bases (4th), hits (5th), doubles (5th) and HR (5th).
 
Lucroy, drafted by Milwaukee in 2007, spent seven seasons with the Brewers from 2010-16, earning All-Star selections in 2014 and 2016. He led the majors in doubles in 2014 with 53, tied for the most in a single season in franchise history. He hit 46 doubles as a catcher in 2014, the most by a catcher in a single season in MLB history. Lucroy finished fourth in National League Most Valuable Player voting in 2014, becoming the first catcher in franchise history to finish in the top 10. He ranks first in franchise history as a catcher in hits (752), batting average (.288), doubles (143), HR (77), RBI (358), and runs (326). He is second in games caught (725).
 
Covington is the 19th member named to the Milwaukee Braves Wall of Honor. Covington spent his first five full seasons and part of his sixth with the Milwaukee Braves. He batted .284 with 64 HR and 235 RBI across 468 games in a Braves uniform. He started all 14 games for Milwaukee in the 1957 and 1958 World Series and was a key contributor to the Braves' 1957 World Series win over the New York Yankees, collecting the go-ahead hit in Game Two and robbing a home run in left field in a 1-0 win in Game Five. He recorded consecutive 20-HR campaigns in 1957 and 1958, combining for 45 HR and 139 RBI in 186 games, including a career year in 1958 in which he batted .330 with 24 HR and 74 RBI in 90 games. Covington passed away in 2001.

Packers D grinchy, steal Christmas game from Browns

Aaron Rodgers' record-setting performance almost was not enough as the Green Bay Packers outlasted the Cleveland Browns 24-22 on Christmas afternoon.

 

The afternoon got off to a rocky start for the Packers as the Browns scored on their first possession and their defense forced a turnover on downs. The Packers would intercept Baker Mayfield on their very next possession which turned into a history-making drive for Rodgers. An 11-yard pass to Allen Lazard turned into Rodgers' 423rd touchdown pass, giving him the most in franchise history. The Packers' defense would intercept Mayfield again, setting up the next record-breaking score when Rodgers found Davante Adams for a nine-yard score. That gave them the most amount of touchdowns for a QB/WR duo in franchise history. After the Browns scored a touchdown on their fourth possession, the Packers would end the half with a second touchdown pass to Adams to give them a 21-12 advantage at halftime.

 

The Packers would open the half with a field goal and would be held to three punts the rest of the half. The Browns would make it interesting the second half, kicking a field goal and Mayfield throwing his second touchdown of the game to make it 24-22. They would have one more opportunity to win the game, but the Packers' Rasul Douglas picked off his second pass of the game to seal the Christmas Day victory. The Packers' defense gave up more than 400 yards of total offense including over 200 yards of rushing, but their four interceptions proved to be enough to hold on for the victory. 

 

The Packers will end the home slate of their schedule next Sunday night when they host the Minnesota Vikings. 

Packers host Browns on Christmas Day

The Green Bay Packers (11-3) will welcome the Cleveland Browns (7-7) to Lambeau Field for a Christmas Day showdown on Saturday afternoon. 

 

Last Sunday, the Packers beat the Baltimore Ravens by a score of 31-30, and with that win won the NFC North. The Packers are 3-0 against AFC North opponents this season, picking up wins over the Steelers, Bengals, and the Ravens. The Packers are looking to sweep the AFC North with a win over the Browns on Saturday. The last time these two teams met was in 2017, with Green Bay taking that one in overtime in Cleveland. 

 

The Browns come into this matchup playing fairly inconsistent football, losing two of their last three, and three of their last five. The Browns lost to the Las Vegas Raiders there last time out on a late field goal. 

Bucks ready to host Celtics on Christmas Day

The Milwaukee Bucks are getting set to host the Boston Celtics on Saturday as part of the NBA’s Christmas Day game slate. 

 

The Bucks come into this matchup off of a win against the Dallas Mavericks which was their second win in a row without some key rotational players. The Bucks have been one of the many teams in the league that have had their roster impacted by COVID-19. The Bucks last win against an equally short-handed Mavericks team was anything but pretty, and in order to beat the Celtics they will surely need to put up a better display on Christmas Day. 

 

The Bucks are getting back to full strength and may be getting a big boost with Giannis Antetokounmpo clearing health and safety protocols on December 24th. The Bucks have not said if Giannis is for sure going to play on Christmas, but said he will test his abilities and make that decision closer to game time. 

 

Tip off is set for 1:30 PM from the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee.

Second Native American Tribe gets sports gambling approved

It has been nearly a month since Oneida Casino welcomed sports betting at their airport location as part of their casino offerings. By doing so, Oneida Casino has seemingly set a precedent for other casinos around the state of Wisconsin. On Monday Governor Tony Evers announced an agreement with the St. Croix Chippewa tribe to allow a new sports betting facility at its casino in Turtle Lake. Governor Evers stated that the agreement will “bring new opportunities for employment and revenue growth to the tribe, and provide a welcome boost to our recovering tourism and entertainment industries.” Tribal Chairman William Reynolds says the agreement will “give our tribe the ability to offer our customers the most comprehensive gaming experience.” The next step in the process is a 45 day review by the U.S Department of Interior, but that review is expected to be approved and the tribe says it has already begun working on the new sportsbook.

The Milwaukee Bucks did not have several of its key contributors due to COVID protocols, but they still left their game with the Houston Rockets with a 126-106 victory at the Fiserv Forum Wednesday night. 

 

The Bucks are still without Giannis Antetokounmpo, Bobby Portis and Donte DiVincenzo due to COVID-19 protocols that have forced many teams to use the NBA's hardship waiver to sign more players.

The Bucks were only up by one after one quarter of play, but outscored the Rockets 72-52 in the middle frames to build up a lead they would not give up. Christian Wood led the Rockets with 20 points and 11 rebounds in the loss.

Despite not playing in front of its Kress Center faithful for over a month and in general for close to two weeks due to its schedule and COVID cancellations, the Phoenix came out firing as they took a 19-11 first-quarter lead and a 10 point advantage into the half. They would be able to stretch that lead to as much as 16 points, but a 14-0 run by the Chippewas would eliminate that advantage in the fourth quarter.

Packers hold on late against Ravens

The Green Bay Packers needed a late defensive stand on a two-point conversion to stave off the Baltimore Ravens on the road Sunday 31-30.

 

Missing Kenny Clark due to COVID-19 protocols, the Packers once again struggled against a mobile quarterback as Tyler Huntley, who was in to replace the injured Lamar Jackson, ran for 73 yards and two scores on the day. Huntley used his arm for the Ravens for the team's first touchdown and the only score of the first quarter.

 

A.J. Dillon got the Packers on the scoreboard in the second quarter as he rushed in from two yards to tie the game up. Huntley and Aaron Rodgers would trade passing touchdowns the rest of the way to keep the game tied at halftime. 

 

The Packers started the third quarter that sucked up half the period before concluding with a two-yard flip to Aaron Jones to make it 21-14. The Ravens would kick a field goal before the Packers would score 10 unanswered points on Rodgers' third touchdown pass of the day and a Mason Crosby field goal after the Packers got the ball on the Ravens' 29-yard line and could not take full advantage. That is when Huntley took over, scoring on the ground twice before his pass on the two-point conversion fell incomplete instead of giving his team a slim one-point advantage with under 45 seconds remaining. 

 

The Packers now have a full game lead in the race for home-field advantage after both the Cardinals and the Buccanneers lost on Sunday. Rodgers' three touchdowns tied him with Brett Favre with the most touchdown passes in franchise history. Despite playing in 50 fewer games, Rodgers has a chance to break the record in front of the Lambeau Field crowd on Christmas Day against the Cleveland Browns.

Third quarter flips script in Packers' victory over Bears

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers' offense had to overcome its own poor special teams play and an inspired Chicago Bears team in its 45-30 victory Sunday night.

 

The Bears jumped out to a 10-0 lead thanks to two impressive drives from Justin Fields and company before the Packers could finally get on the scoreboard with an Aaron Rodgers touchdown pass to Allen Lazard to make it 10-7. The Packers would take a 14-10 lead when Rasul Douglas took a Fields' pass to the endzone from 55 yards out. Fields would show to have a short memory when he connected with Damiere Byrd on a 54-yard slant pattern to help the Bears retake the lead. The Bears would regain their 10 point margin just two minutes later when Jakeem Grant took a punt 97 yards to the endzone. It was too much time for Rodgers as he was able to lead the Packers on a drive that ended with Davante Adams scoring from 38 yards out. Cairo Santos closed out the half and the scoring for the Bears with a 44-yard field goal.

 

It was all Packers after that as they went on to outscore the Bears 24-3 in the second half. Aaron Jones helped the Packers take the lead with a three-yard touchdown run and a 23-yard catch for a score after the defense forced a Fields fumble. Crosby would end the quarter of scoring for the Packers with a 20-yard field goal. Rodgers would set the team record for most touchdown passes against the Bears when he found Adams for his fourth score of the game and his 61st against Chicago. The Bears had some life after that as Santos made it a two-score game with Santos kicking a field goal and the special teams recovering a muffed onside kick. Fields would end the threat with an interception that would send Kurt Benkert out to perform victory formation duties for the Packers. 

 

The win gave Rodgers 23 victories over the Bears, the most in franchise history. The Packers will play the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday at 3:25 p.m.

The Badgers would cut the lead in half in then some several times during the game, only to see the Phoenix be able to hit timely shots and stretch the lead again.

Packers renew rivalry with Bears Sunday

Fresh off the bye week, the Green Bay Packers will host the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field on Sunday evening.  The Packers are coming off a win over the Los Angeles Rams two weeks ago, while the Bears lost to the Arizona Cardinals 33-22 last Sunday.

 

Aaron Rodgers, who is battling through a toe injury, has a chance to become the winningest quarterback in Packer history against the Bears.  He is currently tied with Brett Favre with 22 victories.  The league’s oldest rivalry stands at 102-95-6 with the Packers having the edge.

 

Green Bay (9-3) can get closer to clinching the North Division and making the playoffs with a win over Chicago (4-8).

 

Kick-off is set for 7:20 pm at Lambeau Field.  

UCLA too much for Marquette

The Marquette Golden Eagles came on strong at the end but it was not enough to overcome the #4 UCLA Bruins who prevailed 67-56 Saturday night at Fiserv Forum. 

 

The game was rescheduled for eight hours later than the original time of 1:30 pm when UCLA had flight delays coming into Milwaukee.

 

UCLA jumped out to a 31-11 lead and never where seriously challenged after that.  Leading by as much as 23 points, the Bruins held the Golden Eagles to just 33.3 percent in shooting. 

 

Marquette was led by Greg Elliott who scored 22 points with six three-pointers.  Justin Lewis added 12 points and nine rebounds.

 

UCLA was led by Jaime Jacquez, Jr. with 24 points and 11 rebounds.

 

Marquette (8-2)  will now start Big East action next Saturday against Xavier in Cincinnati, Ohio at 3pm.   

Gamblers topple Capitols on 104.1 WRLU

The Green Bay Gamblers avenged Friday’s loss to the Madison Capitols with a convincing 6-2 win on Saturday on the New Radio Sports Network and 104.1 WRLU. 

 

Alex Servagno scored at the 5:05 mark of the first period and the Gamblers never trailed all night.  In the second period, Jackson Hallum, Carter Batchelder, and Cameron Lund scored goals and the Gambers took a commanding 4-0 lead. 

 

Madison scored two goals to close the gap to 4-2 going into the third period, but Brody Lamb struck back along with Lund’s second goal to close out the scoring for the Gamblers.  In the net, Rastislav Elias had a stellar night with 38 saves for Green Bay. 

 

The Gamblers and Capitols will face off again on Thursday night in Madison starting at 7:05 pm.   

Badgers beaten by Buckeyes

The #22 Wisconsin Badgers could not overcome cold shooting on as they fell to the road, as the #21 Ohio State Buckeyes defeated Bucky 73-55 in Big Ten basketball Saturday. 

 

Starting fast by taking a 19-11 lead, Wisconsin went cold from the field and saw Ohio State go on a 12-0 run and never relinquish the lead. 

 

Johnny Davis led the Badgers with 24 points and Brad Davison added 13, but it was not enough as the Buckeyes snapped the Badgers’ six game winning streak. The Badgers finished the game shooting only 34 percent and was outrebounded by a 49-28.

 

Wisconsin will now look to bounce back as they play host to Nichols State in a nonconference game at the Kohl Center on Wednesday.

Second period dooms Gamblers, battle Capitols again Saturday on 104.1 WRLU

Four unanswered goals by the Madison Capitols gave the Green Bay Gamblers their first loss of the month on Friday by a 4-1 score.

 

The Capitols peppered goalie Aaron Randazzo with 41 shots on the night. They followed a scoreless first period with two goals by Barrett Brooks and one goal by Nick DeSantis. Reid Pabich scored the final goal for the Capitols while Jarod Crespo registered his second goal of the season with just over two minutes left in the game.

 

The Gamblers will get a second crack at the Capitols Saturday night at the Resch Center. Tobin Meyer will have the call on 104.1 WRLU and NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com with the puck drop at 7:05 p.m.
