MILWAUKEE (AP) — Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo has been named to the All-NBA second team.
It's the second consecutive season that Antetokounmpo has been named second team All-NBA. He's the first Buck selected to an All-NBA team in back-to-back seasons since Sidney Moncrief in 1984-85 and 1985-86.
Mike Neighbors is coming home after Arkansas hired him to coach the women's basketball team Monday.
"It's something I've been dreaming about since I was 10 years old," Neighbors said. "I used to cry when the Razorbacks lost and I didn't know why. It's because I loved the Razorbacks so much."
He grew up in Arkansas and can still recite the names of all the players on the Razorbacks teams of the 1970s and 80s.
"I used to walk around with a Sidney Moncrief jersey and pretend I could shoot like him."
