A hello and a goodbye in the world of Wisconsin basketball

Published July 2, 2015

Wisconsin's basketball scene is undergoing change. The Milwaukee Bucks are going to go after a big name free agent, and it's apparent the Bucks are real players this year. That addition, however, is tempered by the loss, after next year, of Bo Ryan. He's going to be missed.

Nightmarish end can't erase Bucks' inspiring season

Published May 1, 2015

A season that started with hardly any expectations, then saw the loss of No. 2 overall pick Jabari Parker and the mystifying departure of Larry Sanders, ended with a thud Thursday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. But the ride was memorable.

Unready for inspiring story to end, Bucks push Bulls to Game 6

Published April 28, 2015

Maybe these Milwaukee Bucks are just too young to know any better. Maybe the 3-0 deficit removed the fear factor and simply allowed them to play with a "Nothing to lose" attitude. Maybe this team is so vastly improved from last year's 15-67 debacle that it's simply better than anyone can believe. Whatever the case, the Bucks' 94-88 victory over the Chicago Bulls Monday night stunned a United Center crowd of 21,814 into silence by the end.

The new Bucks logo is better, but is it good?

Published April 2, 2015

Basketball is a game that involves quick moves, clever tactics, and constant energy, but there is nothing dynamic about this logo. The whole thing is mirrored from right to left. There is nothing interesting about that. I want this deer to be doing something. Not running or fighting or playing basketball, but something as simple as turning its head would tell me it's a three-dimensional living, breathing, exciting team.
