Wagner, Irvin help Michigan beat No. 11 Wisconsin 64-58

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Moe Wagner scored 21 points and Zak Irvin broke out of a slump with 18, helping Michigan beat Number 11 Wisconsin 64-58 Thursday night.

The Wolverines (17-9, 7-6 Big Ten) have won three straight to boost their chances at making the NCAA Tournament.

The Badgers (21-5, 10-3) have lost consecutive games for the first time this season, dropping them into a three-way tie atop the Big Ten standings with Number 16 Purdue and 23rd ranked Maryland with five games remaining in the regular season.

Wisconsin was without senior point guard Bronson Koenig because of a calf strain in his left leg, breaking up a starting lineup that began the first 25 games of the season together.

Ethan Happ scored 18 points in the first half, making 8 of 9 shots, but was held to just four points after halftime and finished with 22 points on 10-of-13 shooting for the Badgers.


No. 11 Wisconsin without PG Bronson Koenig against Michigan

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Number 11 Wisconsin was without point guard Bronson Koenig against Michigan because of a calf strain in his left leg.

The Badgers gave freshman D’Mitrik Trice his first start in place of Koenig on Thursday night.

Koenig is averaging 13.4 points along with two-plus assists and two-plus rebounds. He played through the injury in the previous game, a loss to Northwestern, and was limited to two points on 1-of-8 shooting.


Former Brewers, Packers, Badgers sportscaster Walden dead at 89

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Mike Walden, the voice of Southern California and UCLA sports for decades who also broadcast Los Angeles Dodgers and St. Louis Cardinals games, has died. He was 89.

USC said Thursday that he died on February 12th from complications of a stroke in suburban Tarzana, California.

Walden called USC football and basketball games from 1966 to 1972, including five Rose Bowl appearances and two national football championships in 1967 and ’72.

Walden then moved across town and did play-by-play for UCLA from 1973 to 1990, becoming the first person to serve as the broadcast voice of the rival universities.

He began his broadcasting career in his hometown of Springfield, Illinois. After serving in the Air Force for two years, he did play-by-play for his alma mater, Illinois. He then moved to Milwaukee to call games for the Wisconsin Badgers, Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee Braves. He later worked for CBS Radio in Chicago before coming to the West Coast to announce USC sports.

He was a broadcaster for the Dodgers in 1970 and the Cardinals in 1972. He also did daily sports reports on KNX and KFI radio in Los Angeles and KTLA-TV.


Chris Carter, Yankees finalize $3.5M, 1-year contract

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Chris Carter, who tied for the National League in home runs last season, has finalized a $3.5 million, one-year contract with the New York Yankees.

The deal announced Thursday includes a $500,000 signing bonus, a $3 million salary and $500,000 in performance bonuses: $100,000 each for 250, 300, 350, 400 and 450 plate appearances. A first baseman, the 30-year-old Carter is likely to see time at designated hitter.

Carter’s career-high 41 home runs last season matched Colorado’s Nolan Arenado for tops in the NL. He became a free agent in December when Milwaukee failed to offer a 2017 contract.

Carter hit .222 with a career-best 94 RBIs while appearing in a NL-leading 160 games last season.
