RECLAIMING THE TRADITION. Milwaukee Hamilton's basketball team defends its gym.

On one of the more mundane days of the week, Milwaukee Hamilton came up with two huge defensive stops in the last 60 seconds and won a conference thriller against Milwaukee Washington, 65-63.

The showdown between Hamilton, ranked third in the Division 1 state poll and first in the Journal Sentinel area rankings, and perennially strong Washington attracted a sellout crowd to the Hamilton gym - and Milwaukee Bucks rookie guard Brandon Jennings.

With pictures. Although I'm dismayed with the basketball program participating in holiday tournaments in the south, I'm hopeful there will not be an eligibility scandal this season.
