7:20 am
with the steal and finishes at the other end with the uncontested dunk, part of a 16-4 run. the fun continues as defense turns into offense, this time it's jabari parker making a steal and finishing with the jam and the bucks lead by 20 at the half. but the 2nd half was a much different story as the hawks storm back, actually taking the lead late in the 4th on kyle korver's long jumper. after the bucks take the lead momentarily, tim hardaway junior buries them when he knocks down a 3 from the wing. the bucks take a bad loss, final. the bc will be a busy place tomorrow as the badgers roll in from madison to face the golden eagles in their annual match up with marquette. look for defense to play a big role as each team is looking to extend their current win streak. "they got a good inside with luke fischer. he's nice. he can finish. he can distribute the ball and they have shooters on the outside. we can't just collapse to him the whole time and not get back out so i think that's going to be important."

we'll play great defense again. i think it'll be a great match up though." history made tonight in kenosha as deandre johns passed nick van exel as st. joseph's all time leading scorer. he came into tonight's game against burlington catholic just 8 points shy of van exel's 1282 career points. his putback off the glass in the 1st half puts him ahead of van exel. the game was stopped so they could honor his achievement. obviously, it's a very special moment for johns. "just to be in the same category as an nba all-star is like, i yet. i'm pretty sure when i get home and think about it, it's really gonna, it's honestly a pleasure. i'm blessed, i can say." a burgeoning rivalry renews itself at lambeau field sunday when the seahawks come to town. while they've beaten the packers in huge games over the years, they haven't won at lambeau since 1999. and this weekend will be a very lambeau like atmosphere with snow and that seems to be ok for hawks quarterback russell wilson.

have spare tires, instead, some have "sealant kits"... and others install so-called "run-flat" tires. but be careful. contact 6's jenna sachs explains how those specialty tires work and shows you the drawbacks. gloria strunin recently leased a new car that has no spare tire. she drives long distances by herself to see her family and was alarmed to learn shed have to depend solely on her run flat tires in case of a puncture. mile range. 'it was a big concern of mine and it still is to this day.' consumer reports tire expert gene petersen says run flat tires have thicker sidewalls than traditional tires. most manufacturers say they will support the car at speeds up to 50 miles an hour for a distance of at least 50 miles after most flats. but he has a caution. "theyre not going to work for everything, so if you do have a ripped sidewall, if you do have
8:24 am
not be able to drive on it." run-flat tires are also more expensive than regular tires. depending on size some can cost as much as 300 dollars each. there are also fewer models available, and might have to be special- ordered. why are so many car makers ditching the spare for run-flat tires? "so manufacturers are eliminating the spare to lighten up the load in the car to help improve fuel efficiency, ok. in the case of run-flat tires though it may also be because they dont have room in the car for a spare tire." puncture, with run flat tires youll be able to continue on your way and wont be wrestling with a jack and a spare late at night or in an isolated area. if you are buying a new car that doesnt come with a spare and you want one, ask. sometimes dealers can sell you a traditional spare-tire kit. but make sure it is designed for your trunk and fits securely. i'm jenna sachs - contact 6. ahead on wakeup -- our fashion
