MADISON - University of Wisconsin men's basketball teams have developed a reputation for their focus under Coach Bo Ryan, but today's home game against Purdue has the look of a "trap" for a team with post-season ambitions like the Badgers.

Purdue carries a subpar 13-15 record, including 6-9 in Big Ten Conference play into the noon tip-off at the Kohl Center. They will be facing a Badger team which went 7-4 during one stretch where they played nine top-25 teams. Wisconsin's schedule strength is the third-toughest in the country. The Badgers bring a 20-8 record into the contest, including 11-4 in the Big Ten. Wisconsin plays at Michigan State next Thursday but UW is hoping Ryan's perfect record on Senior Day in the Kohl Center will carry them past the Boilermakers. Senior Ryan Evans, who sprained his kneee in Thursday's practice, is expected to suit up for today's game which tips-off at noon.

Losing a 75-56 decision to Valparaiso costs the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay a first-round bye in the upcoming Horizon League post-season tournament. The Phoenix are now a number-four seed. Matt Kenney did the damage for the Crusaders by hitting 6-of-6 three-point shots and scoring 21 points. Alec Brown led Green Bay with 15 points and Keifer Sykes had 14. The game wasn't close. Valparaiso led by as much as 24 points near the end of the game. Green Bay's record falls to 16-14 overall, 10-6 in conference competition.

A dunk by Toronto's Alan Anderson with less than two seconds to go forced overtime, but the Milwaukee Bucks dominated the extra frame while whipping the Raptors 122-114 Saturday. It was the third straight win for Milwaukee. Ersan Ilyasova scored 29 points and took down 11 rebounds for the Bucks. Brandon Jennings handed out a career-best 19 assists while scoring 11. Monta Ellis scored 23. Larry Sanders dunked to open the overtime session and the Bucks scored the first seven points. Sanders finished with 13 points, a dozen rebounds and five blocked shots.

Aramis Ramirez pounded a double for his first hit of the spring, but left the field with a strained knee Saturday. Milwaukee added to its injury list while edging the Los Angeles Angels 4-3. With Matt Gamel out for the season and Corey Hart sidelined until May, Ramirez was one of three Brewers who came up lame yesterday. He will be checked out today. Starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo missed his scheduled start today with tightness in his groin and Ryan Braun has been idled by a bruised knee. Hiram Burgos looked good yesterday, holding the Angels to one run on two hits in four innings of work. Burgos fanned two batters and walked one. Rickie Weeks had a home run in the victory.
