Badger Men’s Basketball faces UW-Green Bay at the Kohl Center tonight. Badgers head coach Greg Gard says the Phoenix love to run and press under second year coach Linc Darner, so he says his team will have to play well and take care of the ball at a much higher rate. Gard says that staying humble is key even with a five game winning streak currently going. Tipoff is just after 8pm tonight on KFIZ, with pregame coverage starting at 7.


The Milwaukee Brewers have acquired Jett Bandy from the Angels, with Martin Maldonado headed back to Los Angeles in an exchange of defensive-minded catchers. The Brewers also sent minor league pitcher Drew Gagnon to Los Angeles in the deal announced on Tuesday.

Bandy hit .234 with eight homers and 25 RBIs in 70 games for Los Angeles after being called up from Triple-A Salt Lake on May 20.  Maldonado returns to the organization that drafted him in the 27th round in 2004. He hit .202 last season with eight homers and 21 RBIs. The 30-year-old Maldonado made his debut with the Brewers in 2011, serving most of that time as the backup to Jonathan Lucroy until Lucroy was dealt by the rebuilding Brewers last summer to Texas. Maldonado was eligible for arbitration this offseason
