The Golden Eagles' Markus Howard put on an offensive show of his own, scoring 26 points in the afternoon contest held in Hartford, Connecticut.

Morant showed his NBA talent, registering only the eighth triple-double ever in the NCAA Tournament with 17 points, 11 rebounds, and 16 assists.

The bad luck in the WNIT continues for the Phoenix as their losing streak in the postseason tournament now stands at five games.

Bucks beat Lakers while stars sit

No Giannis Antetokounmpo. No LeBron James. The Bucks Vs. Lakers game Tuesday night certainly did not live up to the hype. Two of the top players in the NBA were expected to go toe-to-toe. Instead, fans paid a premium dollar and saw Milwaukee beat L.A. 115-101 without Giannis and LeBron suiting up.

 

The Bucks were led by Khris Middleton's 30 points. Brook Lopez added 28 in the Milwaukee win.

Brewers offense falters against Rangers

Pitching wasn't the issue for the Brewers in their 3-2 loss to the Texas Rangers on Tuesday. Milwaukee only scored two runs both in the sixth inning. Nate Orf scored on an error and then Jesus Aguilar continued his hot spring with a double to drive in Lucas Ercig. But that was it as the Brewers could only muster five hits on the afternoon. The Rangers Willy Calhoun drove in all three runs with a two-run single in the second and a sacrifice fly in the sixth. Milwaukee's bullpen pitched very well only allowing one run while striking out seven in five innings of work. The Brewers will take on the Padres at San Diego's Spring Training home Wednesday with the first pitch coming at 3:10 PM. 

Matthews & Cobb done in Green Bay

Clay Matthews and Randall Cobb were two of the longest tenured Green Bay Packers on the roster. Both reportedly signed new deals on Tuesday. Clay Matthews joins the already potent Los Angeles Rams defense. Matthews will benefit from players like Ndamukong Suh and Aaron Doland lining up next to him.

 

Randall Cobb reportedly signed with the Dalla Cowboys Tuesday. The veteran wide receiver will aide Dak Prescott's ariel attack in the lone star state. Cobb allegedly signed a one-year deal worth $5 million.

 

The departures of Matthews and Cobb leave Green Bay with just four players remaining on the roster from the Super Bowl XLV team of 2010.  Aaron Rodgers, Mason Crosby, Bryan Bulaga and Tramon Williams are the lone Packers Super Bowl champions left on the 2019 roster.  

Indoor season presents issues for track athletes

There is a very good reason many of the track meets during the indoor season take place at college fieldhouses: facilities. With the exception of certain events, some members of the team may finally get out to the track this week as the snow melts, a welcome sight for those trying to get their reps inside a crowded gym. Sevastopol Head Track Coach Chris Horvat says it is especially hard for athletes in events like pole vault, where the proper equipment is hard to find locally.

The Sevastopol girls track team will get to make their mark on the season when they head to UW-Oshkosh next Tuesday. 

Kewaunee Athletic Boosters works with students

The Kewaunee Athletic Boosters and the high school’s technical education department worked together recently to address a glaring need for its soccer teams. Kewaunee’s soccer coaches expressed a need for dugouts for its games, preferably portable so they could move around if needed.  What started as another project for the Kewaunee Athletic Boosters to take on turned into an opportunity for collaboration according to the organization’s president Michelle Dax.

The Kewaunee Athletic Booster Club has also in the past successfully fundraised for new scoreboards, handrails for fan seating areas, and a portable defibrillator. 

 

Phoenix host WNIT game Thursday

For the first time program history, the Green Bay Phoenix women's basketball team will host a postseason WNIT game.

 

On Monday night, the Phoenix accepted the bid to play against Mid American Conference opponent Kent State after not making the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2014 when they last played in the WNIT. The Phoenix could break a four-game winning drought in the WNIT when it hosts Kent State at the Kress Center, a building where they have posted a 134-13 record since it opened in 2007. 

 

The time of the game will be announced later today with the winner taking on the victor in the Butler/Northeastern matchup taking place Thursday at Hinkle Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. 

Packers bring back TE Lewis

Lewis played in 170 games with 157 starts in 12 seasons with the Jaguars and joined WRs Jimmy Smith (12,287) and Keenan McCardell (6,393) as the only players in team history to record 4,000-plus career receiving yards (4,502). Lewis ranks No. 3 in Jaguars history in receptions (375) and No. 2 in receiving touchdowns (33). He started all five postseason games he played in for Jacksonville, recording 10 receptions (No. 4 in franchise history) for 111 yards (11.1 avg.) and a TD.

Softball action begins this week; baseball reports

Though unlikely to start this week due to melting snow and recent rains, baseball and softball seasons are technically underway this week in Door and Kewaunee Counties.

 

Monday marks the first day of practice for local baseball teams. Sturgeon Bay hopes to win another conference title as they went 9-1 in the shortened season. Gibraltar was the team that experienced the most amount of postseason success last year, making the sectional semi-final against Laconia after beating Kewaunee and Algoma by a combined score of 23-1. 

 

On the softball diamond, Kewaunee is scheduled to get the first local softball action of the year with a trip to Chilton. Though not officially canceled or postponed yet, the Storm's season will likely see some kind of delay as the entire state waits to dry out.
