MILWAUKEE - Brandon Knight made a 3-pointer with 1.4 seconds left and finished with 25 points, and the Milwaukee Bucks snapped a six-game losing streak with a 101-98 victory Monday night over the New York Knicks.
Knight took a couple dribbles, then quickly fired his 3 from the wing with Raymond Felton leaping into the air. Felton turned in disbelief as Knight rushed down the other end to celebrate.
The Knicks had one last chance, though Carmelo Anthony misfired on a deep 3. He finished with 36 points.
New York rallied from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter, but ended up falling to the worst team in the NBA.
Khris Middleton added 19 points and a season-high five 3s for Milwaukee, which also snapped a seven-game skid to New York.
EAGLE RIVER - Some schools give out movie tickets, pizza parties, or ice cream coupons for students with good grades and good behavior. We do things a little differently here in the Northwoods.
Twenty-two students from Northland Pines Middle School will enjoy a half-day of fishing with a local guide as a reward for their success in school. The "Guides for Grades" program rewarded students on Monday for setting a good example in the classroom.
Supporters of a second softball field at Pioneer Park in Rhinelander will need to wait for any decision on if those plans can move forward.
The Parks, Buildings and Grounds Committee decided Monday night to hold a public hearing in front of the full city council before deciding on whether it wants to accept the park plans.
The Rhinelander softball program hopes to build a second softball field at Pioneer Park just south of its existing field. The program would use about $50,000 from donations and fundraisers to build the new field. Softball coach D.J. DeMeyer tells Newswatch 12 the second field would allow the city to host upwards of 70 games a year, including RHS softball games, tournaments, and city recreation leagues.
But the new field would require cutting down nearly 10 trees and take up space routinely used by the fair and farmers' market. City Administrator Kristina Aschenbrenner says she's heard from plenty of people worried about space issues.
