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.

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.

THE MILWAUKEE Brewers got back a key player, and he brought with him a victory. Slugging leftfielder Ryan Braun returned on Monday after missing three games with spasms on the right side of his neck. Milwaukee waited to finalize its starters until Braun got a chance to take batting practice before the series opener at the Chicago Cubs. The 2011 NL MVP looked just fine in the cage, so Milwaukee put him back in leftfield and his usual No. 3 spot in the batting order. Braun doubled twice and finished with three hits as the visiting Brewers snapped a five-game losing streak with a 7-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs.

KYLE LOHSE waited all winter and finally found a home with Milwaukee. Lohse and the Brewers completed a 3-year contract worth $33 million on Monday, a big boost to their suspect rotation exactly a week before the season opener. "I'm really happy to be able to come over," Lohse said during a news conference at Milwaukee's spring training facility in Phoenix. "With this offense and the ability of their pitching staff, it looks like a good fit. I know everybody in the division. " Lohse enjoyed his best season in the majors last year, going 16-3 with a 2.86 ERA and helping the St. Louis Cardinals earn an NL wild-card spot.

MILWAUKEE - The 76ers, in search of momentum all season long, came to the final game before the all-star break hoping for a playoff-caliber performance against a team that could decide their postseason fate. And for one half the 76ers delivered, shooting the ball well and making the hustle plays that have been sporadic at best for them this season. But the Sixers could not sustain that effort through four quarters and it proved to be their undoing in a 94-92 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
