Sports – Thursday, January 22nd, 2015


Packer nation got a dose of reality on Wednesday.  Packer coach Mike McCarthy had his season
ending press conference abruptly cancelled yesterday morning.  It was later learned that his 47-year-old
brother Joe collapsed at a Pittsburgh
area gym and later died at a hospital. 
The coach immediately flew to Pittsburgh.  There is no timetable for his return.


It turns out it was academic standards that pushed Gary
Andersen out of Wisconsin and to Oregon State.  Andersen told CBS Sports that he was upset he
couldn’t get certain players into Wisconsin
who had qualified by NCAA standards.


Carvelle Oliver banked in 30-foot jumper at the buzzer to
lead the Marian men over Edgewood 61-58 last
night at the Sadoff Gym.   Josh Creed led
the Sabres with 16 points.  The win evens
Marian to 9-9 overall and 8-5 in NACC play.
