Wisconsin Sports Headlines - 5/11/2020

The Latest Sports Headlines: 


>>2020 Packers Schedule – Some Good, Some Bad

(Green Bay, WI)  --  There are some things to like about the 2020 Green Bay Packers schedule announced last week – and at least one thing not so good. The Packers will play four of their last six games at home and two of those games will be against warmer-climate teams, the Panthers and Titans. However, the schedule includes another game at Levi Stadium against the San Francisco 49ers – where Green Bay was whipped soundly twice last year. It gets worse.  It’s a Thursday night road game and the Packers’ fourth game and third road game in a 19-day period.

 

>>Milwaukee Bucks Are Good Road Team, So Losing All Home Games Isn’t Devastating

(Milwaukee, WI)  --  If the NBA season is finally completed by playing all games at neutral sites like Orlando and Las Vegas, that’s not all bad for the Milwaukee Bucks.  Coach Mike Budenholzer’s team was 25-and-9 on the road, playing three of those games without Giannis Antetokounmpo.  Only the L-A Lakers were better. The Philadelphia 76ers would be a challenger as the Bucks try to defend their Eastern Conference title, but Philly was just 10-and-24 on the road. The Bucks would lose the home court advantage they claimed by compiling the league’s best record, but they might be more likely to overcome that challenge than other post-season competitors.

 

>>Badgers Athletic Staff Facing Big Pay Cuts

(Madison, WI)  --  Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez, football coach Paul Chryst and basketball coach Greg Gard will be dealing with smaller paychecks for the next six months.  The U-W athletic department is implementing what it calls a “compensation and work reduction plan.”  Its top 25 highest-paid employees will take a 15 percent pay cut, while other workers will see their hours reduced by 20-to-50 percent over the next two months.  The move should save about two-point-eight million dollars while the U-W System struggles with a funding shortfall approaching 100 million dollars.

 

>>Bucks Star’s Brother Skipping College, Will Play Pro In Europe

(Whitefish Bay, WI)  --  The brother of Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo will skip college after an impressive high school career and will play in Europe. Alex Antetokounmpo averaged 20 points and seven rebounds-a-game for Dominican High School in Whitefish Bay.  He was a two-time first-team all-state selection for the Knights. The younger Antetokounmpo says he was born and raised in Europe and he knows European basketball. He had Division One scholarship offers from U-W-Green Bay and Ohio.

 

>>American Legion Baseball Called Off 1st Time Since 1927

(Portage, WI)  --  There will be no American Legion baseball in Wisconsin this summer.  For the first time since 1927, the American Legion in Wisconsin is canceling the season.  The announcement was made Saturday.  Wisconsin American Legion Baseball Commissioner Roger Mathison says the board considered the health of the players, coaches, parents, fans and volunteers while making its decision.  There were 217 teams playing last summer in the state, making it the fourth-largest program in the U-S.  Insurance and registration refunds will be processed in two-to-three weeks.
