>>Packers Front Office: We’re Not Idiots. Aaron Rodgers Will Be Back
(Green Bay, WI) — The Green Bay Packers front office doesn’t have any doubts about who will be playing quarterback next year. Team president and CEO Mark Murphy says, “We’re not idiots. Aaron Rodgers will be back next year.” Murphy commented on the 5th Quarter Packers show. Rodgers had told reporters his future with the team was in doubt after Sunday’s 31-26 loss to Tampa Bay in the NFC title game. The NFL salary cap could create some roster turnover for Green Bay, but Rodgers is apparently sticking around.
>>Torrey Craig Finally Gets Chance To Show Why The Bucks Picked Him Up
(Milwaukee, WI) — Versatile Torrey Craig finally got a chance to show why the Milwaukee Bucks picked him up in Sunday’s win over Atlanta. Wearing a clear protective mask over his healing broken nose, the six-foot-seven athlete scored four points, with two rebounds, two assists, and a steal in about a dozen minutes. Craig had missed 12 games after being injured against the Knicks. Milwaukee has needed more from its bench and Craig is being counted on to provide some of that. Coach Mike Budenholzer finally gave him some court time to show it.
>>Providence Looking For Payback As Marquette Visits
(Providence, RI) — Providence is looking for a little payback when the Marquette Golden Eagles visit tonight (Wednesday) at 7:00 p-m. Marquette beat the Friars 79-69 two weeks ago in Milwaukee. The teams have identical 8-and-7 records overall, including 4-and-5 in Big East Conference play. David Duke leads Providence with 18-point-seven points-a-game. Nate Watson is right behind him at 18-point-six. Freshman Dawson Garcia of Marquette is scoring 12-point-seven points-a-game and taking down seven-point-two rebounds. The Golden Eagles are doing some damage from the free-throw line – averaging a league-leading 19-and-a-half charity tosses-per-game.
>>Marquette Alum Sacar Anim Summoned By G League
(Orlando, FL) — The Agua Caliente Clippers of the NBA G-League have signed former Marquette starter Sacar Anim. The six-five guard was on the list of available players for the G-League draft earlier this month, but he wasn’t picked. Only 24 players were. The league will play a shortened season starting next month in a bubble at Disney World, something like the NBA last summer. Anim was called Saturday, finally getting a clue about what will be next for his basketball career. The Minnesota native averaged 13 points-a-game for the Golden Eagles during his senior year.
>>Notre Dame To Host Big Ten Men’s Hockey Tournament In March
(South Bend, IN) — Several sources are reporting the Big Ten men’s hockey tournament will be played at Notre Dame in March. South Bend, Indiana was chosen because it is the most central location among the conference member schools. Games will be played at the Compton Family Ice Arena. Officials are working out the details right now. Indications are there will be three quarterfinal games played March 18th, then two semifinals, and the championship game over the next two days. The regular-season champion will get a bye into the semis. The other choices to host were Minnesota and Penn State, but geography won things for Notre Dame.
