The Bucks didn’t make any
moves as they NBA’s trading deadline came and went on Thursday. Various reports
say the Bucks had a deal on the table with Houston for big man Dwight Howard and also
had talks with the Timberwolves for point guard Ricky Rubio but in the end
didn’t make a deal.

team completed the season sweep over rival St. Mary’s Springs with a 55-34 win
at the Hutter Gym on Tuesday night. 
Sophomore Noah Lorenz led all scorers with 16 points.  Seniors’ Eric Schmitz and Mitch McFarlane

Ledgers with 8. The win improves WLA to 13-8 overall and 9-2 in the Flyway
