The Milwaukee Bucks finally beat a good team and hardly anybody was there to see it. Eric Murdock had 28 points and 12 assists and led six Milwaukee players in double figures last night as the Bucks stunned Hakeem Olajuwon and the visiting Houston Rockets, 106-98, in front of 7,543 bundled fans at the Bradley Center. Some 7,646 tickets that were issued weren't used because a heavy snowstorm made road conditions treacherous. Fans stayed home rather than braving bad visibility and wind chills in the minus-20-degree range.

Ever notice how that staple of the NCAA tournament, the office pool, never quite gets cranked up for the NBA playoffs? It has to do with the possibility of upsets. In the NBA playoffs, there is precious little of the unexpected. Chicago opened its first round last night with - surprise - a 111-97 victory over Milwaukee. In the NBA, the home-court advantage means everything. So does talent. Favored teams may have a bad night, but seldom enough bad nights to lose a five- or seven-game series.

The last time the 76ers were in Milwaukee, on Nov. 8, the face of the team began to change. Johnny Dawkins went down with a season-ending knee injury early in that game. Then the Sixers were told that their trade for rookie forward Jayson Williams precluded them from signing injured swingman Derek Smith, who has since joined the Celtics. Soon, center Mike Gminski went into a shooting slump - part of the reason he was traded last week to Charlotte for Armon Gilliam and Dave Hoppen.

The lips are tight in Milwaukee. Given their history during this time of year, the last thing the Bucks want is a sunken ship. It seems that each year, as the flowers begin to bloom, the Bucks get eliminated from the NBA playoffs by the 76ers. Four times in the last five years the Bucks, usually coming off a brilliant regular season, have met their Waterloo in the Sixers. It took the Sixers seven games to beat the Bucks in the spring of 1981. They took Milwaukee 4-2 in 1982 and 4-1 in 1983.

Thirty-four days after leaving town in search of an antidote to their anemic attack, the Kixx displayed a revamped offense last night. Having outscored the opposition by 85-68 during their 3-2 road trip, the Kixx wanted to show what they had learned as they took on Milwaukee at the First Union Spectrum. As it turned out, an old standby stole the show in an entertaining 8-7 victory over the Wave (11-6), a perennial contender for the National Professional Soccer League crown.

The next time the 76ers meet Milwaukee - next week in the playoffs - Charles Barkley will be in uniform. Oh, for small favors. Last night, Barkley was home nursing his sprained left ankle while the Sixers and the Bucks met for the last time in the regular season. It wasn't pretty. The Sixers lost in a rout, 128-95, equaling their most lopsided loss of the year and robbing themselves of any swagger as the playoffs near. "That's the worst we've been," Maurice Cheeks said.

Mark McGwire got a night off yesterday in Milwaukee, much to the chagrin of fans at County Stadium who disregarded a light drizzle to see the St. Louis slugger chase Roger Maris's home run record. Cardinals manager Tony La Russa said McGwire was "laboring at the plate," so he kept him out of the starting lineup against the Brewers. It was just the eighth time in 113 games that McGwire wasn't in the starting lineup. Stuck on 45 homers for a week and "mired" in a 24-at-bat homerless skid, McGwire told La Russa he needed a rest.

Representatives of Milwaukee's effort to land an NHL expansion team withdrew their application for a franchise yesterday, citing economic reasons. Lloyd Pettit, who heads Wisconsin Ice Hockey Inc., the group that was making the bid for Milwaukee, said league rules for expansion franchises made it economically unfeasible. Pettit said a franchise would be worth $60 million to $65 million, including the league's $50 million franchise fee and an indemnity to the Chicago Blackhawks because of the proximity of the two cities.

A night's sleep and several hours of thought didn't mellow Charles Barkley at all. Barkley was still seething yesterday about the Milwaukee fans and his clash with center Paul Mokeski, not to mention the Bucks' tie-breaking 113-108 victory Wednesday night in Game 5 of this best-of-seven NBA quarterfinal series. "I wasn't even going to fight the guy," said Barkley, explaining his state of mind when he and Mokeski tangled for a second time in the fourth quarter, this time beneath the Sixers basket.

The beaning of Miami Marlins rightfielder Giancarlo Stanton on Thursday night in Milwaukee was a reminder of the inherent dangers hitters face in the batter's box. Stanton suffered multiple fractures in his face when he was struck by a Mike Fiers fastball in the 4-2 loss to the Brewers. On Friday, Stanton tweeted via @giancarlo818:"The amount of support I have received from you guys has been tremendous & Heartfelt. I'm much better today & deeply appreciate your prayers!" Marlins manager Mike Redmond said before Friday's game at Citizens Bank Park against the Phillies that there was no timetable for Stanton's return.

After the Phillies dropped to a season-low 14 games under .500 following last Sunday's 6-2 loss in Pittsburgh, the hitters met in Milwaukee to discuss ways to improve. Since then the Phillies had won five in a row entering Saturday's game at Citizens Bank Park against the Washington Nationals. Apparently the meeting and the offense's production in those five games are somewhat related. "We talked about it in a good hitters meeting, a talk in Milwaukee putting things back in perspective, and it's paying off so far," shortstop Jimmy Rollins said late Friday night after he enjoyed the ninth multi-homer game of his career in a 6-2 win over the Nationals.

MILWAUKEE - It was the best of times, it was the wurst of times. One minute I'm high-fiving cheering people in the stands, and the next thing I know, I'm a bum. Ah, the life of an athlete - or at least one wearing a giant foam costume for a day. Klement's, the well-known Milwaukee sausage maker, sponsors the nightly "Sausage Races" at Miller Park, home of the Milwaukee Brewers, always in the middle of the sixth inning. This night, I was in it. With one out in the sixth, I donned "Frank," the Hot Dog outfit.

Jay Wright has done this long enough that the truths about the NCAA tournament are no longer mysteries that need to be unwrapped. Seasons come and seasons go, but what it takes to advance deep into the national championship tournament remains the same. "First, you have to play well. Period. After that, it's matchups," Wright said as the No. 2-seeded Wildcats prepared for a Thursday opener against Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Matching up well against the opponents that fall into your path is where luck enters the equation.

A roar of disappointment and disgust went up Sunday from friends and alumni crowded into the Connelly Center's multipurpose room when "Virginia" went up on the No. 1 seed line in the East Regional instead of Villanova. But the Wildcats players and coaches were just fine with being the region's No. 2 seed, good for a matchup against Horizon League tournament champion University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee on Thursday in Buffalo. "I thought a No. 1 seed was possible, but I understood we weren't going to get it because we lost in the quarterfinals of the Big East" tournament, senior guard Tony Chennault said.

Spencer Hawes calls the 76ers' defensive struggles a tendency of the young teams he's been on. "We get trapped early after we get off to a good start scoring," said the seventh-year NBA veteran, who played his first three seasons with the Sacramento Kings. "Everybody starts feeling good and loses track of making sure they don't do the same thing. " That's exactly what happened in Saturday night's 116-106 setback to Milwaukee at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. The Sixers rank last in the NBA in scoring defense, yielding 111.7 points per game.

MILWAUKEE - While a ballpark packed with blue-and-yellow-clad fans rested their Carlos Gomez bobbleheads neatly under their seats at Miller Park, Gomez brought them to their feet. He swung at the first offering from Jonathan Pettibone in the sixth inning and launched his 11th home run of the year to left-center. The ball found a landing spot just below Bernie the Brewer's dugout, the mascot's little treehouse-like enclave where he hangs out until a Milwaukee player hits a home run. As is his tradition, Bernie slid down his yellow slide as Gomez rounded the bases.

MILWAUKEE - Moments after Kyle Lohse surrendered a run to the feeble Phillies, a boisterous Sunday crowd at Miller Park rose to express its admiration during a 9-1 thumping. Good pitching is unfamiliar to the people of Wisconsin. The Brewers possess the worst starters' ERA (5.64) in the majors. The Phillies were a panacea. Lohse pitched eight innings for the first time in almost two years. He retired 16 Phillies in a row until third-string catcher Humberto Quintero mashed a meaningless home run to right in the eighth.

MILWAUKEE - Four weeks ago, Tyler Cloyd pitched into the seventh inning of his first major league game of the season, holding the hot-hitting Arizona Diamondbacks to two runs. Before the night was over, he was optioned to Triple A Lehigh Valley. Cloyd wasn't guaranteed anything on that night and he might not be around a month from now, either. John Lannan was scheduled to make his first rehab start last night in Clearwater before rain washed out the game, and tonight in Reading, Carlos Zambrano will try to impress in his quest for a return to the big leagues.

RAY ALLEN is on a plateau by himself, as has the Miami Heat one step closer to the second round of the playoffs. Allen scored 23 points and broke the NBA career playoff record for three-pointers, and the visiting Heat downed the Milwaukee Bucks, 104-91, last night for a 3-0 lead in their first-round Eastern Conference series. The Heat can complete the sweep in Game 4 on Sunday at the Bradley Center. No team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit to win a series in the NBA playoffs. Allen's five three-pointers against the Bucks gave him 322 for his career, two more than Reggie Miller.
