UWM Star Works Out With Milwaukee Bucks
During their latest round of pre-draft workouts, the Milwaukee Bucks hosted former UWM star, guard Ricky Franklin. Franklin was in for a treat as he found the Milwaukee Bucks' training regimen to be a little more rigorous than he was used to. Even though Franklin is in good basketball shape from his UWM days, training with a professional basketball team is hard work! Apparently Franklin's calves started cramping up toward the end of the workout. According to the Milwaukee Bucks' scouting director, making the leap from college to professional basketball is bigger than you might expect. College players are not used to the faster pace of the professional basketball game as well as the larger size of other players. The Milwaukee Bucks will continue to hold pre-draft workouts until the draft towards the end of June. It will be interesting to see what the 2010 draft has in store for the 2010-2011 Milwaukee Bucks!
