MILWAUKEE -- Less than 48 hours after falling just short of a triple-double in a Milwaukee Bucks victory at Brooklyn, Giannis Antetokounmpo will get another crack at Brooklyn when the Bucks play the back end of a home-and-home series Saturday afternoon at the Bradley Center.Antetokounmpo scored 23 points, grabbed eight rebounds and dished out eight assists in 30 minutes of work. Milwaukee was in such control of the contest -- ultimately, a 19-point victory -- that he didnt take the floor in the third quarter.Its a long season, Antetokounmpo said. It doesnt matter for me. The only thing that matters is to get the win. We play them (the Nets) again in two days so they made a great decision sitting me in the fourth quarter because weve got to get the win again in two days. Its a must-win game again.Its no coincidence that as Antetokounmpo gets hot, so have the Bucks. Milwaukee has won three in a row and four of its last five games.The Bucks are averaging 111.0 points, 48.0 rebounds, 24.7 assists, 9.7 steals and 7.3 blocks per game over that stretch and shooting 48.8 percent from the field and knocking down an average of 10 3-pointers per contest.I think we got the ball moving, but it all starts with our defense, Bucks coach Jason Kidd said.The Bucks held Brooklyn to 38.2 percent shooting and a 12-for-40 showing from behind the arc.We couldnt pierce their defense, Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said. They kept us in front and they would switch it and keep you there and kept us on the perimeter. I would like to see how many rim attempts we got, but I dont think we converted at a high rate. So credit to their defense, they are a good defensive team and they were tough to score on tonight.Brooklyn also committed 17 turnovers in the loss to Milwaukee, continuing a season-long problem. The Nets are third in the league in turnovers this season, averaging 16.5 per game.There is not one player where we are saying, Hey, you are turning it over all the time, Atkinson said. Its equal distribution, so our offense has to get better. Our execution has to get better.Milwaukee has won 13 of the last 17 meetings, dating back to Jan. 9, 2013, and the first two meetings of this seasons series.Isaiah Whiteside wants to see that streak come to an end Saturday afternoon.I think they just wanted it more than us, said Whiteside, who scored 14 points with six rebounds and four assists against the Bucks Thursday. We just have to come out with more of a sense of urgency on defense and get stops instead of leaving easy buckets, and I think they basically did what we were supposed to do.We need go to their place and we really just play with a chip on our shoulder and come out with a win.

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Jake Hubenak threw for 248 yards and a touchdown and Myles Garrett had 4 1/2 sacks to help No. 23 Texas A&M get back on track with a 23-10 win over UTSA on Saturday.The Aggies (8-3) were in need of a victory after consecutive losses to Mississippi State and Mississippi ruined their shot at the College Football Playoff.The Roadrunners cut the lead to 3 points early in the second quarter after a one-handed touchdown grab by Josh Stewart. The Aggies then scored the next 13 points, capped by a 47 yard run by Trayveon Williams to make it 23-7 in the third quarter.There was a lot of good and a lot of bad, Texas A&M receiver Josh Reynolds said. Theres still a lot of things that we can fix, but ultimately we were moving the ball and scoring.UTSA (5-6) was led by Jared Johnson, who threw for 186 yards and a touchdown.Garrett was finally healthy after missing two games and being limited in several others because of a high ankle sprain. Garrett finished with eight tackles, broke up a pass and forced a fumble. Instead of limping as he has been in recent weeks, Garrett was harassing UTSAs two quarterbacks all game.He further showed his ankle is fine when he batted down a pass in the second quarter and celebrated with a spirited dance. He had another big play in the fourth quarter when he sacked Johnson to force a fumble, which A&M recovered.You can see the difference, Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said. Hes a dominant player when hes 100 percent.Garrett has 8 1/2 sacks this season to give him 32 1/2 for his career, making him the eighth player in Southeeastern Conference history with at least 30 career sacks.ddddddddddddThey are phenomenal at the defensive end position, UTSA coach Frank Wilson said. We tried to do various things to keep them off balance, and assist with blocking with tight ends, but there were a couple of times where Myles Garrett and the other defensive end were able to get beyond us and were disruptive.Reynolds caught a 16-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter and finished with 93 yards receiving. Williams had 11 carries for 80 yards to leave him 44 yards shy of becoming the first true freshman at the school to rush for 1,000 yards.THE TAKEAWAYUTSA: The Roadrunners, who have had a football team only since 2011, showed theyve made a lot of progress by keeping things close. But in the end they just arent yet on the level to deal with the size and speed of a team like Texas A&M.TEXAS A&M: The Aggies did what they were supposed to do against a lesser opponent, but Hubenak and the offense will need to be sharper when they return to SEC play next week.Hes been effective for what weve asked him to do, Sumlin said. His biggest characteristic right now is hes finding the playmakers.UP NEXTUTSA: The Roadrunners will look to become bowl eligible for the first time when they host Charlotte on Saturday.TEXAS A&M: The Aggies face a quick turnaround, wrapping up the regular season Thursday night when they host No. 16 LSU.---More AP college football http://collegefootball.ap.org ' ' '
