Sports Minute: Here is the latest Wisconsin sports news from The Associated Press

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) - Chris Bosio is out as the Chicago Cubs' pitching coach after six seasons. A person familiar with the situation says the team says the team will not pick up his contract option for next season. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the move has not been announced and confirmed a report by USA Today. Bosio's dismissal comes after the Cubs we're eliminated by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL Championship Series.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Kobe McCrary ran for 153 yards and the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter, and Rodney Smith added 103 yards rushing for Minnesota as the Gophers beat Illinois 24-17 victory. Linebacker Jon Celestin returned an interception for a touchdown in the fourth to provide the winning margin for Minnesota.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 17 of his career-high 44 points in the fourth quarter, and he gave Milwaukee the lead for good on a breakaway dunk with 11 seconds left in the Bucks' 113-110 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday night. With Portland leading 110-109, the Trail Blazers lost the ball and Antetokounmpo's thunderous dunk put the Bucks ahead.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Jonathan Taylor ran for a touchdown and broke the 1,000-yard mark for the season, Alex Hornibrook passed for two scores and Number 5 Wisconsin stayed unbeaten with a 38-13 win over Maryland Saturday. Taylor finished with 126 yards on 22 carries, a relatively ho-hum day following two straight 200-yard outings for the running back.

EVENSTON, Ill. (AP) - Quarterback Clayton Thorson scored on a 1-yard run and Northwestern rallied from a sluggish first half for a 17-10 overtime victory over Iowa Saturday. Thorson's score was set up by a 23-yard reception by running back Justin Jackson, who broke three tackles on the play to give the Wildcats a first down at the 1-yard line. Following Northwestern's score, Iowa moved the ball to the 18-yard line, but Nate Stanley's pass for Noah Fant on a fourth-and-3 play fell incomplete, ending the game.
