Police spokesman Mark Stanmeyer later said Wednesday that a victim, who is 26 and from Sussex, "told officers that his forehead was cut when he was struck with a bottle during a fight." The alleged victims left the club and ended up at Columbia St. Mary's Hospital on Milwaukee's east side. It took eight stitches to stop the bleeding of one of the victims. Stanmeyer said the suspect is 24 years old, the same age as Sanders. "You would think that a multi-million dollar basketball player wouldn't be getting in fights in clubs, especially knowing the season has already begun," says Sam Gleischman, who lives near the club. "Obviously being a resident and property owner on the block, I'd like to know more of the specifics," Gleischman adds. Today's TMJ4

For whatever reason, Sanders has looked out of sorts through three games on both ends of the court, but particularly on offense. On Tuesday he did not practice because of a sore thumb, but Sanders' spirits were high because his wife had given birth to a girl the previous day. "In a lot of ways I am the same player," Sanders said. "The opportunities really haven't been there. I think the kind of player I see myself as is a defensive player, an energy guy who runs the floor and gets back in transition to make sure our defense is set." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

And they most certainly expect him to be the energy guy who became a fan favorite for precisely that reason. "He's just got to get back to doing what got him this recognition," Drew said. "It all starts with energy. Playing hard, rebounding, running the floor, setting screens, doing all those energy things. "He'll be able to score a little bit. But it all starts with energy and him being smart when he's on the floor and not taking cheap fouls, which does us no good. He's got to get back to where his intensity is at a high level."

Drew's previous experience with Sanders came through film study and whenever the Bucks played the Atlanta Hawks last season. Drew said he has yet to see that Sanders. "I've seen it in spurts," Drew said. "It's about consistency where he's doing it the whole time he's out on the floor. " Sanders said he did not take exception with Drew for his extended benching Saturday night. "For whatever reason Coach felt he was more comfortable with the group he had out there at that time," Sanders said. "He's been in and out with different lineups, so it's not real solid right now. "I'm being patient with him. Whenever he feels I should be out there, I will be. I'm trying to sit back and control the things I can and stay positive and keep trying to be the player I've been."

Larry Sanders has been studying his playbook this week. The Milwaukee Bucks center is learning a new system after spending his first three pro seasons under coaches Scott Skiles and Jim Boylan. Now it's time to comprehend defense, Larry Drew-style. "Sometimes it's less work; sometimes it's more work," Sanders said after Friday's practice session at the Cousins Center. "It's just an adjustment. "Different schemes, but they're simple. It's just a lot of them. And we're taking the time to learn them. Coach is being patient with us, understanding we come from a different system and incorporating what we already know into the system now." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
