Here is the latest Washington, Oregon and Alaska sports news from The Associated Press
MILWAUKEE (AP) – Greg Monroe’s layup put Milwaukee ahead with seconds left and John Henson swatted away Meyers Leonard’s potential game-winning shot to help the Bucks edge the Portland Trail Blazers 90-88 last night. O.J. Mayo hit a 3-pointer that cut Portland’s lead to 88-87. After a Trail Blazers timeout, Michael Carter-Williams tied up CJ McCollum as both fell to the floor in a scramble on the inbounds play. Carter-Williams won the jump ball and the Bucks worked it down low to Monroe. He muscled his way in for a layup.
HONOLULU (AP) – Dillon Brooks scored 19 points to lead four Oregon players in double figures and the 24th-ranked Ducks beat Navy 67-47 on Monday night in the Pearl Harbor Invitational. Dwayne Benjamin scored 16 points, Chris Boucher had a double-double with 14 points and 14 rebounds and Casey Benson added 10 points for the Ducks (7-1).
RENTON, Wash. (AP) – The Seattle Seahawks have released cornerback Cary Williams, who started the first 10 games of the season before getting benched. Williams was benched midway through the Seahawks’ victory over San Francisco in Week 11, then was a healthy scratch the past two weeks. Seattle has started DeShawn Shead at cornerback with Williams on the sideline.
SEATTLE (AP) – The Seattle Sounders have traded midfielder Lamar Neagle to D.C. United for allocation money. Neagle played a variety of roles in the midfield and occasionally at forward for the Sounders. Neagle’s trade is the latest move in an offseason makeover for Seattle. The club also declined to extend contract options to Gonzalo Pineda and Marco Pappa.
