John Vishnevsky, a Milwaukee-area businessman, has made an offer to buy the Milwaukee Bucks and says he will put together a second offer for the NBA team put up for sale last week. One bid, by National Development and Investment Inc., which he heads, sets up the framework for hundreds of investors to buy an interest. He said the second offer would be from a team of major local investors . . .
Arkansas Coach Eddie Sutton says a statement he made about being so frustrated with college recruiting he's ready to take an NBA job (after rejecting past offers) was off the cuff, forget it, he's staying on.
At a Fayetteville news conference, he said, "I am not going to the pros. My comment in talking to a writer in Dallas was, 'Sometimes a few of us get frustrated having to compete against those who are cheating and maybe that's what will drive me to the pros' " . . .
Marshall University officials in Huntington, W.Va., remeasured a miracle shot by guard Bruce Morris at 89 feet 10 inches and said they would submit it to the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest successful shot in basketball history.
The school originally measured 92-5 1/4 for the shot, made at the end of the first half of Thursday's victory over Appalachian State. The 89-10, using different parameters (back of shooter's foot to back of basket rim), still beats the Guinness mark of 89-3 by Virginia Tech's Les Henson in 1980 against Florida State.
