>>Bucks Need Win To Even Second-Round Playoff Series Against Miami
(Lake Buena Vista, FL) — The formula for a Milwaukee Bucks victory in today’s (Wednesday’s) second-round playoff game is simple: Giannis Antetokounmpo needs to play like the Greek Freak. He shouldn’t let himself be forced into committing six turnovers and hitting more than four-of-12 free throws would be good. The Miami Heat collapsed their defense on the big guy and neutralized him in a 115-104 decision Monday. Other than the seeding games, when the Bucks had nothing to play for, they haven’t lost back-to-back games in a long time. A normal game from Antetokounmpo and continued solid play by his supporting cast is needed when the contest tips off at 5:30 p-m this evening. Listen to coverage starting at 5 pm on KFIZ.
>>Packers RB Aaron Jones Thinks This Year’s Offense Is “Crisper”
(Green Bay, WI) — The Green Bay offense was solid during a 13-and-3 season last year, but running back Aaron Jones thinks it’s going to get better. Jones tells NFL Network it’s been “crisper” in training camp. The man who led the league in touchdowns says he and his teammates aren’t having to think about what their assignments are. Coach Matt LaFleur’s offensive plan isn’t new to them. Even though Jones says the Packers offense was “dynamic” last year, he’s seeing an improvement. He offers some high praise for rookie running back A-J Dillon, saying the guy with the strong legs will be a major addition when the season opens September 13th.
>>Court Filing Reveals Big Ten Vote To Delay 2020 Season Was 11-3
(Lincoln, NE) — The lawsuit filed this week in a Nebraska court argues that Big Ten Conference football players are losing a chance for development with the delay of the 2020 season. Eight Cornhusker players are asking a Lancaster County District judge to reinstate the season. The court filing has revealed the vote to put it out was 11-to-three. An anonymous insider tells the Associated Press that Iowa, Nebraska, and Ohio State voted against postponing the fall season. The players who are suing argue the conference’s decision-making process is “flawed and ambiguous.”
>>Wisconsin Men’s Hockey Getting Ready For Season – If There Is One
(Madison, WI) — Coach Tony Granato is getting his Wisconsin men’s hockey team ready for an October 3rd season opener. Players will begin working with the coaching staff today (Wednesday). The problem is, nobody knows when the Badgers will actually take to the ice against an opponent during the coronavirus pandemic. Granato, his assistants, and the Badgers players are not-that-patiently waiting to hear from the Big Ten Conference and the NCAA on the status of the college hockey season. Both the men’s and women’s hockey teams have been idle since March 12th when the pandemic forced the shutdown of all winter and spring collegiate championships. With a record of 28-five-and-three, the women’s team appeared to be capable of defending its national title.
