    Koenig scores career high

    MADISON, Wis. - It's safe to say Bronson Koenig has found his shot.

    Saturday, the point guard scored a career high 16 points in leading the University of Wisconsin men's basketball team to a 65-50 win over Northwestern at the Kohl Center.

    The Milwaukee Bucks must have either done something really bad to Larry Sanders or been really good to him.

    The 26-year-old Sanders is reportedly ready to accept a $13-15 million buyout.

    MADISON - For the third time in six games, Bronson Koenig scored a career high.

    What do Packers do with Cobb?

    If you really love something, you let it go and hope it returns.

    Is that how the Green Bay Packers are approaching Randall Cobb's impending free agency?

    The deadline is fast approaching for the Packers to do something with Cobb.

    It appears, however, that the five-year veteran, who finished fourth in the league in touchdown receptions (12) – one behind teammate Jordy Nelson – and 11th in the league in receiving yards (1,287), will hit the open market in free agency.
