Bucks face tough competitors without star center
THE MILWAUKEE BUCKS move into a critical period of the lockout-shortened National Basketball season this month, hosting some of the top teams in the league. But they will have play without star center Andrew Bogut who broke his ankle in a January game in Houston.
Coached by Scott Skiles, the Bucks are now led by guard Brandon Jennings and a number of new players including veterans Stephen Jackson and Mike Dunleavy and rookie John Leuer, a college standout at the University of Wisconsin.
During February, the Bucks play tough home games against three playoff contenders – division rival Chicago Bulls, Miami Heat and Orlando Magic. All Bucks home games are at the Bradley Center, 1001 N. Fourth St.
